Studying at HKUST for my semester abroad was truly one of the best decisions I have ever made. This exchange not only allowed me to explore innovative teaching methods but also immerse myself in an interesting course within a completely different environment. Forming friendships with people from around the world and experiencing the Hong Kong lifestyle with them is an experience that will stay with me forever.

For me, studying at HKUST is related to three things. The first is a huge list of useful and relevant courses for every taste. The second thing is the people from whom you learn, get to know this world and its diversity, and get inspired to do better. The third is the opportunity to play almost any sport within the walls of the university. I recommend you to try it on your own experience, I am sure it will definitely leave a positive mark in your life.
