Choosing to spend four months at HKUST is a decision I'll never regret. The experience allowed me to delve into topics I'm passionate about through challenging courses. Building friendships with students from around the world was enriching, and all of this unfolded on an astonishing campus, adding a unique dimension to my academic journey. I left Hong Kong with four words in mind: I will be back

Studying at HKUST during my semester abroad was truly an inspiring experience. I made friends from all over the world and worked in interactive classes with different nationalities. Student life at HKUST is just awesome and there is plenty of things to do and explore around the campus and in the city. Looking back I can say that probably had the greatest time of my life as an exchange student.

The 4 months I spent at HKUST were some of the best of my life so far! The university campus, the city, the nature, and the people of Hong Kong are truly awesome. Most of all, I was able to meet and spend them with amazing friends that I'll hopefully see again many times beyond the exchange. The university and the exchange are super well organized and professional, I felt at home and welcomed after only one month. I also had the opportunity to take part in very practical, challenging and engaging courses taught by professors with totally different and valuable skills. I definitely learned a lot and had fun here academically, practically and as a person. If you're thinking about choosing HKUST, I can say that I consider the opportunity a privilege. Oh, and about the food: it's the reason I initially chose Hong Kong and I was not disappointed!!!

When I was studying at HKUST, we formed a group chat with people from all over the world. Students from Germany, U.K., Netherlands, the US, and we would get together every once in a while to go to the beach, to the city and eat on campus. I would definitely recommend to study abroad and take the opportunity to have an experience like myself.​
