A. Global Perspectives
UCCKE places a high importance in broadening the perspectives of students. We have developed a covenanted sister-school relation with specific schools in Australia, South Korea, and Mainland China. And we make friends with many other schools worldwide as well.
In the past few years, we have been accommodating exchange students from foreign countries like Denmark, Norway, Italy and Germany. Our own students have also been encouraged and facilitated to travel abroad for exchange studies to enjoy international education experience. From 2012-13 onwards, our school offers generous scholarship based on merits for short term exchange program to Australia, Germany and South Korea.
Every year, we launch mission and study tour to numerous countries reaching out to most continents of the world in half a decade. With the completion of dormitory facilities in 2009, we now enjoy the greatest potentiality in receiving foreign students and visiting educators, hence broadening students’ horizon within campus. It is our very determination to make continuous effort to enhance students’ exposure to the international environment for the sake of nurturing quality global citizens.
