Study Abroad Highlight

Study abroad at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).


CUHK is located in Sha Tin, a short train ride from downtown Kowloon and 20 minutes to the Lo Wu border with mainland China. There is a metro stop at the entrance to campus, which is on a beautiful hillside that commands panoramic views of the Tolo Harbour and mountain ranges nearby. Tai Po, the next subway stop after University station, has a great night market filled with tasty restaurants where locals enjoy family and friend gatherings. Hong Kong’s culture is a melting pot of customs and traditions. Everywhere you step in Hong Kong, you’d be hard-pressed to miss signs of the city’s unique fusion of East and West—a complex multicultural vibe that makes it such a unique and easy-to-navigate world city.


USC Exchange Student, Rhiana Caterisano, Spring 2017 


“Hong Kong is a beautiful city with a lot to see and do. The local culture is very unique, with both Chinese and British influences. The scenery in the area is gorgeous, and the public transit is so well-connected that you can get anywhere you want to via the trains or the buses. I love being able to spend the day either in the city or out on a remote hiking trail. There are also many surrounding smaller islands that are fun to visit, such as Tap Mun island where there are wild cows you can meet. Overall I really am enjoying Hong Kong and think that there is something for everyone here.”
