Semester Abroad Sanctuary

Summary:
The Chinese University of Hong Kong does not look like a safe place for students.After the Canterbury earthquakes, a lot of universities, both here in NZ and elsewhere, made it really really easy for Canterbury students to do a semester as visiting students.I don't know how many students at the Chinese University of Hong Kong would want a semester abroad in New Zealand. And it could be that the messes there will be over by the time university starts up again in New Zealand.But it could be good if New Zealand's universities had a chat with each other, and with Immigration New Zealand, about what they could do in hosting students from Hong Kong needing a safe space come the next semester, should it remain unsafe in Hong Kong.Update: Why not consider semester-abroad students from Hong Kong

The Chinese University of Hong Kong does not look like a safe place for students.

After the Canterbury earthquakes, a lot of universities, both here in NZ and elsewhere, made it really really easy for Canterbury students to do a semester as visiting students.

I don't know how many students at the Chinese University of Hong Kong would want a semester abroad in New Zealand. And it could be that the messes there will be over by the time university starts up again in New Zealand.

But it could be good if New Zealand's universities had a chat with each other, and with Immigration New Zealand, about what they could do in hosting students from Hong Kong needing a safe space come the next semester, should it remain unsafe in Hong Kong.

Update: Why not consider semester-abroad students from Hong Kong for summer semester?
