Fall 2015 Participant
If you want your class credit to transfer then you really need to take the classes seriously. They take off after reading week. Other than that, a prospective student should just learn how to use the MTR as fast as possible then everything else will just fall in place. You'll never feel lost if you can use the MTR.

Spring 2019 Participant
Learning about a new culture, and being immersed in a new environment! I also loved being able to truly live on my own and figure things out by myself, but with people I know could help me if I truly needed them in the background.

Victoria Priscilla Kaufman, Fall 2016 Participant
I found the first few weeks the most rewarding because HKU provided activities for exchange students to meet which was a great way to emerge into the school.
