Third Year Core Abroad
Hong Kong University
Third year McIntire students:
During the term abroad, students must complete four HKUST offerings, for 12 UVA semester hours. In addition to those four courses, Commerce students must also complete the online UVA-taught Global Strategy and Value Enhancement course, which will result in four UVA credits for COMM 3040 being awarded by McIntire faculty and counting in students' UVA GPA. Each student must complete at least two business courses to equal 9 credits from the course planning list. Those two courses, along with the COMM 3041 online course, will satisfy the spring 9 credit ICE requirements. Additional courses will satisfy appropriate Commerce School or University electives.
For more information, view our course planning information.
NOTE: UVA accepts transfer credit (no grades) for these courses. However, students must earn a grade of C or better for each course to transfer back to UVA.
Students must attend the McIntire information session and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop on the www.studyabroad.virginia.edu website. After completing this workshop, students may complete the online "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" application on the ISO website.
Students will live in on-campus double-occupancy student halls.
Additional InformationThis program is an exchange program, with tuition being paid to UVA. Detailed information about this fee can be found in the online Education Abroad Workshop.
All UVA students are required to have both basic international health coverage and emergency assistance coverage when studying abroad. See the Insurance page on the ISO website for more information about requirements. Additional information and details about the HKUST program can be found on the university's website.
