“My favorite aspect of CCS program was diversity. Compare to other majors, we don’t learn ONE thing. We learn different aspects of China, e.g. culture, politics, language, business etc.”

Studying this programme at CUHK helped me to have a comprehensive understanding of China in various aspects, and to interact with people from around the globe.

“There were a lot of tough courses, but overall the experience was excellent. The most notable experience being in Chinese Studies was when a professor sparked a research interest during a fieldwork project in rural China. It was only supposed to be for graduate students, but I asked him and he was very welcoming and said ‘You can join us.’”

“I saw it as an opportunity to do something a bit outside the box compared to the traditional path of studying in Europe.”

“Critical thinking is highly valued here. CCS professors don’t transfer knowledge; they teach you to make discoveries by yourself, and then they guide you to critique what you discovered.”

“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.”
