IELTS for Overseas Exchange Programmes – 2017/18
Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience.
An overseas exchange programme can help you to experience a new culture and learning environment, to develop new approaches to learning, and to improve your English.
Universities in Hong Kong provide exchange places with overseas partner institutions. Hong Kong students study at their host institutions for between one semester to one year.
Overseas institutions require you to provide proof of your English language proficiency — often a minimum of an IELTS 6.0-6.5 band score (IELTS Academic). IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 145 countries, with more than 3 million tests taken last year. IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking — and is designed to reflect real life use of English.
