    One of a kind

    I studied Bioinformatics at CUHK last year. It was the only Master’s degree in Hong Kong in this field. This program developed my analytical skills and equipped me to be a Bioinformatician in a very practical way.
    I enjoyed my year here and met classmates from different parts of the world. If you are thinking to enhance your profile, this degree program would be a good option.

    Valuable time in CUHK

    I like the learning environment and people at CUHK. Surrounded by hills and Tolo Harbour, CUHK provides a balance between nature and hustle. You can always escape from the busy study life and meet your friend around the big campus for different activities.

    Practicality of knowledge

    Surprisingly, the faculty at the law school were very professional and practical, as well as very charismatic and courteous. For the course, Hong Kong’s natural location brings a lot of cutting-edge practical experience and knowledge, and the combination of Western business practices with Chinese and Hong Kong operations gives the course a higher degree of operability.

    general education courses, unique college system, large campus

    The university facilitates multi-dimension and interdisciplinary learning. In social science faculty, we need to choose courses as our faculty package from other departments (architecture, psychology, sociology, etc.) to learn more than our major required courses. We are also required to finish general education courses, which aid our critical thinking and humanistic sensibilities. I do recommend the social science broad-based program, and the professors I met so far are all responsible and erudite.

    University Experience

    I don’t know if it’s because I major in Computer Science, but most of the professors who are in charge of the major courses teach very well. They have detailed explanations with step-by-step examples that are easy to learn.
    The student body is mostly locals and mainlanders but you can definitely find your own niche with international students as well and make friends from India, Indonesia, and Korea.
    I lived in CWChu College. They had three washing machines and four driers with a balcony where you could dry your clothes below the sun. The machines are usually free if its not near the weekends. The college is quite isolated but I’d say its facilities is one of the best.
    The food around university is mediocre, but you could eat out once a week and you should be fine. The food won’t fit you if you have high standards.
    The campus is also the best in Hong Kong and the most university-like in terms of scale. The campus is closely intertwined with nature and you can definitely see and feel the greenness well. The buildings are quite old but they serve their purpose.
    In my opinion, CUHK is a decent university with great professors and students.

    Student community and atmosphere

    It’s a great place for open-minded students to start up anything they wanted to do, like business, political, interest group etc. Students are nice but mainly local students in my scope (journalism). There aren’t enough accommodation spaces for all students though

    The budget airline of universities (shouldn’t even be considered an university)

    If cost is your biggest priority then this is the school for you. However everything else about this school is lousy. From the WiFi that doesn’t work multiple times a day (which will hurt your grades), to only having 2 washing machines and 1 dryer for a dorm of 50 people (I hope you like wearing stinky clothes). The bus system here is decent but many of the buses don’t let you take luggage on board and you’ll be forced to suffer walking up the mountain this campus is built on. On top of that a train ride to the city is about an hour and is especially worse packed like sardines on the train. The food here is the worst I’ve ever had, I hope you know how to cook. Options are pretty limited and you’ll probably end up eating this gross bbq pork with rice for every meal since nothing else is at all appetizing. Had we haven’t even begun talking about the classes. First of all signing up for classes is painstakingly difficult. I don’t even know how to explain the signup process because it is extremely confusing. Even after you think you’ve signed up for all your classes be careful because many of them are cancelled because nobody has enrolled in them. Teachers here will make you dance for final exams after a semester of teaching you nothing. (If I was a dance major I would consider studying here full time). All in all this so called “university” sucks, plain and simply. If you do attend school here I’m sorry for the 4 years of hell you will go through.

    LLM

    The faculty of law is relatively new. You do not need to have a LLB to pursue a LLM, which is special. The taught programme is great for mature students who want to obtain legal knowledge.
    CUHK has good teaching staff too.
