This Regional Institute is aimed at connecting secondary school counselors within the East Asia and Pacific Region with university admission advising tools and networks of universities around the world. It is also intended for universities around the world who want to build connections and deepen their understanding of students in the East Asia and Pacific market.   

Through in-depth and focused conversations and presentations, participants will gain a greater understanding of the educational process, admission requirements, fees and scholarships, and the challenges and opportunities students face when applying to a university outside of East Asia and the Pacific region.

The University of Hong Kong (or HKU, as it is familiarly known to students, staff and alumni) is the oldest tertiary education institution in Hong Kong. The University of Hong Kong, Asia’s Global University, delivers impact through internationalisation, innovation and interdisciplinarity. It attracts and nurtures global scholars through excellence in research, teaching and learning, and knowledge exchange. It makes a positive social contribution through global presence, regional significance and engagement with the rest of China.

HKU continues to attract the best local students, along with many Mainland China and international students. The University’s academics have outstanding achievements in teaching and research, and about half of HKU’s faculty are from overseas.

The school is a member of International ACAC.


Cost

Regional Institute fees will be $175 for High School and Individual Members and $190 for College and University Members and Organizational Members.

The institute will offer scholarship opportunities for secondary school and independent counselors who could not otherwise afford to attend. 


Registration 

Sign up now for information.

Registration will be opening in early December. 


Housing Options

Room blocks will be negotiated at nearby internationally recognized hotels as there will be no on-campus housing. As this institute is being held during a holiday in Hong Kong, hotels will book up quickly, so you will want to act promptly when housing information is available.
