Student Testimonials

2016-17 Year-long Exchange
My exchange semester at HKUST was an eye-opening experience! Despite being the only Trinity student here, getting to know other students was very easy! Weekends were spent hiking, cliff jumping, going to Disneyland or Ocean Park theme parks, museums, Korean karaoke bars, squid fishing, and going to the horse races as well as LKF, the nightlife area. There were many boat parties in HKUST organized by different student societies and students could spend the day at sea banana boating and socializing which was a great way to meet other exchange students!

Hong Kong was life changing! Not only was I taught by world renowned professors, but I also met some of my best friends in the best city in the world—where else can you find mountains, sea, and sky scrapers within 10 minutes of each other? What enhanced my time at HKUST were the unique campus experiences. I attended a seminar on the refugee crisis in Germany and was selected to have tea with President Chan. But what really completed my exchange was the dim sum, red bean green tea muffins, and jogging beside the ocean.
