    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.
