[ News ]  Non-local students and Exchange Students Orientation Camp 2016 (English Only) - 2016-08-30
This year’s Orientation Camp held on 30 & 31 August, was based at the brand new VTC Student Dormitory (TY) and was attended by 15 new non-local students and 7 exchange students.

Welcoming the world.  Eleven countries were represented including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Indonesia, the Mainland, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Singapore, Sweden and Taiwan. Four parents also attended each morning and on Day 1 all received a warm welcome from Ms Josephine Kea, Ag. ED.

VTC and the wider community.  Students had a busy couple of days during which they absorbed valuable information about the VTC and living and studying in Hong Kong. This included language workshops and a visit to their own campus to get to know their new local community.

New friends and HK BBQ.  International Student Ambassadors together with progressing non-local students supported throughout, offering their own experience of life as a student in Hong Kong. These young leaders led campus and community tours and joined new students for an evening barbeque at IVE(TY).

We invite all VTC colleagues to join us in offering our new non-local students a warm welcome as they settle in at VTC.
