The OUHK has close to 20,000 students on campus, with half of them enroll in our full-time programmes and another half continue to upgrade themselves through part-time learning. We have more than 40 student societies offering array of activities, filling our campuses with vibrant life.
The OUHK emphasizes the practical side of learning in addition to theoretical knowledge. Students go out of the classroom to put what they have learnt into practice. Placements/internships are integral to programmes such as testing and certification, nursing and hospitality management. The University also goes to great lengths to line up internship opportunities for students of various programmes. Apart from local programmes, overseas schemes are offered to help students broaden their horizons and develop a global vision.
For example, in 2017, the OUHK developed the ‘YIC x OUHK Internship Programme in Newly Industrialized Country – Vietnam’ in collaboration with the Hong Kong Young Industrialists Council, and worked with the Hong Kong Shanghai Youth Association to offer a Shanghai-Hong Kong Future Leaders Internship Programme.
OUHK students have left their footprints all over the world also through exchange tours and immersion programmes, some organized by Schools and others by external parties. In 2017-18 alone, our students have paid nearly 1,400 visits to over 85 cities, and the University arranged more than 2,600 internship opportunities for students in Hong Kong and abroad.
To cultivate students’ personal growth, the OUHK encourages students to take part in competitions. In recent years, students have shown off their talents on local and international stages. Examples include:
