Besides accepting local and non-local students for the full study programmes, we also receive exchange students for a semester exchange. To date, students from Mainland China, Canada, South Korea, USA and many European countries had participated in our exchange programmes. At the same time, our students, based on their ability and interest, could choose to participate in and link up various exposure programmes or activities ranging from one week to two years at our partner institutions and universities. Such experience helps enrich students’ extra-curricular knowledge, broaden their horizon, understand cultural diversity and make foreign friends. Details on these opportunities can be found at International Exposure at IFT (ie@IFT).
