Kowloon is an urban area in Hong Kong, comprising the Kowloon Peninsula and New Kowloon. The Victoria Harbour, separating the glass towers of the Hong Kong Island and the busy streets of Kowloon, is one of the world's most spectacular waterways. Beyond the commercial districts are beautiful islands and unspoiled beaches along the coast. One of the world's tallest Buddha statues is found on the Lantau Island, the largest outlying island in Hong Kong. The official languages of Hong Kong are Chinese and English. Cantonese is the indigenous and most widely spoken dialect. Use of Putonghua (Mandarin) is growing. Major signage is in English and Chinese.
Students may participate in this program for a semester or academic year. For either of these sessions, students select from courses offered through CityU's academic departments grouped under the different faculties. With English as the main language of instruction, CityU is extremely attractive to TAMIU students majoring in Business, Communication, Social Sciences, and Science.
