In line with the desire to prepare its students for the world market, Foundation University has started to explore links with foreign universities in Hong Kong, with the visit of FU Chairman Victor Vicente G. Sinco and Alex Pal, consultant on Advancement.{{more}}

The FU officials visited the City University of HongKong on Jan. 18 where they met with Associate Vice President David Cheng, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong on Jan.19, upon arrangements with the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia, which has its office inside the CUHK campus.

UBCHEA President Dr. Nancy Chapman, Vice President Dr. Betty Cernol-McCann, and Rebecca Yue, senior officer of the Institutional Advancement Office, met with the FU officials and toured them around the campus.

The exchange of ideas between FU and UBCHEA officials was hailed by Dr. Chapman as “a very educational experience,” which gave her a unique perspective at how Philippine universities are positioning themselves to provide relevant education in the wake of global developments.

“Coming to Hong Kong was a big step to see what schools here are doing,” said Sinco, who earned his architecture degree from the University of Washington in the United States.

Having seen the programs being offered by top world universities in Hong Kong, Sinco said the challenge for Foundation University now is to come up with a program that students from Hong Kong or other countries would be interested in pursuing here in the Philippines.

Foundation University currently has some international students who are enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Hospitality Management, and in the College of Nursing.
