The teaching style was very different from Taiwan because it was in English. In fact it would have been impossible to find the same course at my home university. My classmates were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed all the classes even though the subject was tough. Overall it was a truly unforgettable semester in my university life.

“The professors have been friendly and helpful to me, and they have given a lot of support with my desired courses. They even took me to events that I showed an interest in - not just at the university. The lectures are interesting and I really like the abundant events. The whole design building with all the different programmes and the possibility to use the workshops for everything imaginable is very impressive, and it means we can do great projects.”
“In my time here I’ve been able to visit to various hackathons, founder events, talks and pitches. I also had a chance to visit different makerspaces and was even able to attend the Maker Faire Shenzhen. There is always something going on in the founder and maker community over here, and having Shenzhen being so close is perfect.”

Another advantage of studying at PolyU is that Hong Kong’s central location makes it easy and affordable to explore other parts of Asia. I arrived in Hong Kong a month before the start of the semester and was able to take a backpacking trip through Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, and Japan. Since arriving I’ve visited Taiwan, and I have plans to visit Mainland China and Macau. PolyU’s campus and halls are also situated in a central part of Hong Kong and are serviced by several MTR and bus lines, making it quick and easy to get to most places in the city.

I was very impressed with the dedication and passion of the academics that took my classes. They provided helpful guidance and encouraged me to improve my skills, but perhaps most importantly they helped me to clarify my future goals. I would like to express my deep gratitude to all of them.
Apart from studying, I also made many friends at PolyU. We created our own study groups and helped one another, which also improved our performance.
