What are the benefits of attracting more non-local students to study in Hong Kong?

It is the common goal of the Government, the UGC and the entire higher education sector to ensure that our graduates are globally competitive. That means having an international outlook and an ability to understand and work with people from different cultures and background. The UGC believes that the presence of quality non-local students can help create a more international environment for the students, enhance cultural exchange, introduce positive competition and widens local students' perspective. For the society as a whole, it allows Hong Kong to attract more talents and enhance the quality of our population. This will in turn facilitate economic development and enhance Hong Kong's overall competitiveness in the long run.
