International student from The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK), WHY EdUHK?

The Education University of Hong Kong

“Many memorable experiences at EdUHK made me change a lot. The numerous internationalised activities helped me to build my confidence to make friends with people with diverse backgrounds, most of whom are now my best friends. Most EdUHK lecturers are approachable and willing to help students. Nice lectures and small-sized classes make EdUHK a great place to study. The university life experience is valuable and it writes excellent chapters in my life.”

“Being able to enroll in The Education University of Hong Kong is a breakthrough in my life. Coming from a much less developed country, Myanmar, almost everything in Hong Kong is a brand-new experience for me. 

During my freshman year, I had had many difficulties due to my language barrier and the lack of knowledge on the directions and systems of Hong Kong. Whenever I have difficulties, I usually turn to Global Affairs Office and Student Affair Office. Through the information given by them, I was able to register mandatory language course, join the activities, and programmes that accentuated cultural exchange. I got chance to make friends with local as well as non-local students, and to explore the cultures and traditions of Hong Kong.

Although it is painful and lonesome to confront the obstacles alone at the first stage, these difficulties nourish me to become a more mature person. Once I have gained friends and changed my regards, I found life in Hong Kong is more joyful and worth spending for.”
