Studying in Hong Kong

Three fundamental strengths set Hong Kong apart as a centre for education in our region: cultural diversity, opportunities and international standards.

Hong Kong's rich cultural blend of East and West forms the backbone of a vibrant learning environment. It is easy for students to communicate in both English and Chinese in an intellectually stimulating mix of cultures.

As the premier gateway to China, Hong Kong is in tune with our nation's needs in terms of talent, investment and creative thinking. There is also great opportunity for students to interact with people from diverse backgrounds and learn about different cultures, particularly how to do business in the Mainland.

Hong Kong's third fundamental strength is high standards of education.

Foreign students may take up part-time work, internships and summer jobs. After graduating, foreign students may apply to remain in Hong Kong without restriction for up to one year to look for a job.

Top-notch Universities

Hong Kong's universities have constantly ranked among the world’s leading schools and are home to academics and researchers from around the world. They are attracted by Hong Kong’s academic freedom, cosmopolitan and liberal environment and supporting policies. These universities provide excellent prospects for internships and further education.
