In HKPolyU, I have got a wonderful learning experience here. First of all, the beautiful campus in Hong Hum is
excellent, especially the “Jockey Club Innovation Tower”! A sense of modern was what we felt when we first arrived the campus. Besides, the campus is located at the center of Kowloon, having a lot of delicious and traditional Hong Kong food around. The most representative one is going to be “Dim Sum” for sure. There is even a Chinese restaurant inside the campus! Also, the location of PolyU is super convenient(near the waterfront of Victoria Habour), which can easily allow international students to travel around Hong Kong(usually Lan Kwai Fong lol).
At the same time, the hightechnology learning environment really amazed me. The library there are amazing, having a lot of expensive facilities, for example, the VR installation, lots of Mac Book Pro, etc. Moreover, the full English teaching style is also different from NTU. The teachers here always encourage students to discuss within a group.
By interacting with students from different universities around the world, we have exchanged different ideas and, at the same time, got some new visions. Last but not least, you can truly enhance your English writing and speaking skill after this course because you always have to hang out with the foreign exchange and have to write tons of essays in English all the time.
PolyU International Summer School not only gave me a different learning experience, it also provided me with an opportunity to make a lot of friends coming from different countries such as South Korea, Chinese Mainland, Singapore, Indonesia, Kazakhstan and of course the local students from PolyU Hong Kong!
Finally, I want to talk about Hong Kong people here. During the 2019 summer program, there is a big issue happened in Hong Kong. To be honest, I can tell that the Hong Kong people here are the most impressive things I have ever met in Hong Kong. They care about Politics. They care about Democracy. They care about their Future. Not only being irrationally violence as what newspapers wrote, instead, they are fighting for their rights. I can see how hard they try in the pursue of “Equity” these days by the “Lennon Wall” I saw at all the universities in HK, by the Hongkongese I met during the protest, by the tear gas I tasted from the HK police and by the attitude I received from the HK government. All by all, the experience here is memorable and I would highly recommend this HK summer program with no doubt!
