Hong Kong is more than a vibrant, cosmopolitan city. It’s an experience unlike any other. For those who know us, Hong Kong is one of the safest, most convenient cities in the world, with fast, reliable internet connections, outstanding public transportation, restaurants, clubs and galleries, lush country parks, and long sandy beaches. For students and graduates, it’s the opportunity not only to thrive but to build a career and form global networks in one of the most exciting cities on earth.
In 2021, the Safe Cities Index by The Economist put Hong Kong at No.8 in the world. The pandemic has proven how vital our world’s best infrastructure and robust healthcare system are to preserving public health and the economy.
Hong Kong is an international destination, known historically as the gateway to the East. Today, the city is less than one hour by land transport to Mainland China and within five hours’ air travel to half the world’s population. In Hong Kong, you can communicate easily in English, make friends with people from a variety of different cultures, and establish business connections that will last a lifetime.
The enterprising spirit of our people has always been the driving force behind Hong Kong’s success. If you have an innovative idea, you can set up a business here quickly, easily and with a minimum of red tape. If you need investors to fund your startup, there are endless ways to raise capital in one of the world’s most important financial centers.
We welcome talents from around the world, and we definitely want to retain those who have studied with us. Upon completion of their undergraduate studies, non-local fresh graduates can stay in Hong Kong for 12 months after graduation to seek employment.
