Virtual Exchange Opportunity with Hong Kong Baptist University

You can take a module online with one of our partner university’s in Hong Kong along side your modules here at Kent.

We are delighted to offer Kent students the opportunity to participate in the HKBU Virtual Exchange ProgrammeThis is an unique opportunity to be able to take 1 or possibly 2 modules in addition to your main studies at Kent with our partner university, Hong Kong Baptist University.  The current list of modules available can be found here, all are taught in English.  Modules range from Business Communications to Gender, Language and Creativity, Introduction to Cantonese to Mathematics on the Battlefields.

The modules will run from September – December, with a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous elements (the exact % of each will depend on the module).  If you decide to apply, you must be prepared to commit and attend for the full semester.  There are no fees associated with the programme.

Alongside the classes, HKBU are excited to enhance your virtual study experiences with them through a wide array of virtual student-led activities such as buddies scheme, cultural immersion activities, and talks!


All students who participate in this virtual mobility will be able to learn, appreciate and evaluate different international perspectives, strengthen your intercultural dialogue skills and develop your knowledge in an area of studies that you may not be able to get from Kent.  This will be an opportunity for you to meet and collaborate with students from across the world, and can either provide an alternative to study abroad or act as a taster to go later during your time at Kent, depending what Stage you are at in your studies.

You will receive a transcript from HKBU on successful completion of the module, in addition to Employability Points at Kent and it will be recognised on your Higher Education Achievement Report.
