The University of Hong Kong

University of Hong Kong is a pretty easy choice if you’re shooting for prestige—it was ranked 1st in the Asian University Rankings of the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings in 2009. HKU features all your standard faculties: Arts, Engineering, Social Sciences, and more, with a Faculty of Dentistry thrown in for good measure. The school is also said to treat their students quite well; there are a generous amount of services dedicated solely to meeting their needs, as well as over 100 clubs and programs. While the official language of instruction at the University of Hong Kong is English, don’t count on hearing it outside of class, but do count on plenty of friendly locals to help you out if you find yourself lost or in a bind.

As for accommodation, if you’re living on-campus, expect to be placed, invariably, in one of the university’s over 15 Halls. Exchange students often choose this option in the interest of frugality (very cheap) and additionally benefit from the halls’ social aspects. However, many complain about having to share particularly cramped rooms, as well as the halls’ typical rules, which limit who students can bring in, and to what extent they’re allowed to “gather.”

  • Maria Ly is quite literally a Rock Star. You’ll often find her hanging off a 5.13a grade rock climbing route, she is the rock star co-founder of Skimble (which is incubated by Rock Health), and you can find her rock formation photography featured in Outside Magazine.

  • March 13, 1988 was the day we moved to America. Although it wasn't my first time in the country, that date was the beginning of my journey through the American school system. Those eleven years filled me with a lifetime of great memories.

  • Mayank is an inventor and zebra-enthusiast. He developed Stripespotter, a biological barcode scanner for zebras, and is a part of the team behind Facebook insights. By way of India to Oman to the US, Mayank can be found behind the wheel of a red Porsche dreaming up his next big idea.
