The College started to establish student exchange programmes with overseas tertiary institutions in 1990. The programmes provide students with opportunities to challenge themselves to see things from a new perspective, to rediscover themselves, their city and culture from a global stage; and to hopefully, when they return, contribute to cultural integration in the College.
