Learning about art from books and on screens is fascinating, but seeing works in situ, examining masterpieces in close proximity, feeling their scale and texture, such experience is just incomparable. What is more, when your classmates and teachers are all there together, going on a trip like that is perhaps one of the greatest highlights of your university years!
The University and individual donors have been very generous in supporting HKU Fine Arts student travel through both faculty-led and individual trips. In recent years, around 20-30 Fine Arts students each year benefit from the following travel grants:
- HKU Museum Society Travel Grants
- The UOB Scholarship in Fine Arts
- Art and Education Travel Grants for Fine Art Students
Share your experience! If there are some memorable old photos you took on the road, please send us a copy (with caption) to enrich the department portfolio!
