Contemporary China Studies programme allows me to have a comprehensive understanding about China through its diversified courses, including but not limited to history, arts, sociology, economics, and politics. It also provides me an unforgettable exchange journey in Beijing which let me see the real China from a ‘local’ perspective. All in all, the learning experience in CCS is incredibly meaningful and fruitful!

Contemporary China Studies programme provides students a variety of opportunities for in-depth study of China. For example, the field study course in mainland China is a vital experience in which we can meet and interact with locals, and immerse ourselves in Chinese culture. Studying this programme over the years just like experienced a remarkable and inspiring journey.

I choose Contemporary China Studies because I have the interest to study more about China from the social science perspective. I have lived in China for 10 years and that experience motivated me to get into this programme. Learning together with all the other students from different cultural backgrounds in one place is really a great experience for me.

I am so thankful to the Contemporary China Studies programme at CUHK, especially for the semester long exchange study at Peking University. It was simply amazing! I learned so much during my stay. I took intensive Putonghua classes and another elective class. The classes were very productive and enjoyable. We were making a big progress and were having a lot of laugh. Besides, I also got times for outside class activities. I made friends over there and hang out with them to various places to observe and experience the life style of locals. The most memorable experience was visiting the family of one of my local friends in her home province, Shandong.

It is an incredible feeling to connect to other students from all over the world sharing the same interests in ancient and modern China. The programme also helps you to see China from different perspectives.

I enjoy studying this programme so much because it facilitates the cultural exchange between all the CCS fellows who come from different countries. My classmates always teach me the usage of their native languages while I help them on the study of Chinese and Cantonese.

The great thing about CCS courses is that they are not only diverse courses available for studying all aspects of modern and ancient Chinese relations, but the students are also equally diverse, with a large mix of international, local and exchange students all studying, sharing and debating together.

When I was studying international relations at a university in Japan, the information I found about China was very limited. I wanted more perspectives. If I stayed in Japan, I would only get the Japanese point of view.

The programme provides me a great chance not only to study more about China but also, in such an international learning environment with classmates from all over the world, to further equip myself with international horizons and multi-language proficiency such as English and Mandarin.

This program doesn't just teach you about China, it teaches you how to understand, how to approach a topic with fervor and gusto. How to tackle a problem and understand an issue from multiple perspectives. To not just accept the majority consensus, but to challenge it, and ensure that it is true.

CUHK acts as a microcosm for Hong Kong itself. The hustle and bustle of it is great, as is the mellow tranquility of the mountains here. I love the paradox. It’s also really friendly, and you can network very easily.

Though an ethnic Chinese apparently with some 'knowledge' of China, I am amazed at and grateful for how profoundly the program has renewed, improved and deepened my understanding of the country and the world. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone with a thirst for intellectual challenges and cross-cultural friendships.
