Hong Kong Baptist University
Samford established a relationship with Hong Kong Baptist University [HKBU] during the 1997–98 academic year that allows three students to study there each semester. Hong Kong Baptist University is a highly respected university founded by Baptists and serves a multicultural mix of students from around the world. Course work is offered in English in almost all areas of undergraduate study. There should be no difficulty in arranging courses at HKBU that meet major requirements at Samford.
Samford students approved to attend HKBU pay Samford tuition. In addition, students are responsible for the cost of accommodations, meals, round-trip airfare, an administration fee set by HKBU and other personal expenses. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for information. Samford students share a two-person room with a Chinese roommate. Sophomore, junior or senior students interested in applying to HKBU should contact the International Studies Director in Brooks Hall or call (205) 726-2064 early in the semester prior to desired attendance at HKBU.
