Winter Service Abroad Opportunities

In the coming winter, HKUST Connect has arranged for you various service learning trips to different places.

You will have the opportunities to organize activities for underprivileged children and explore local cultures in Cambodia and Mainland China, or support the school rebuilding project in Nepal. Through engaging in service trips, you will be able to broaden your horizons, enrich your university life, and raise your awareness of your responsibilities as a global citizen. You can make real impact to the local community, and gain authentic cultural experiences that you can't get from a traditional classroom.

Service Learning Trips:
