Asia as the Global Future
Asia and in particular China is becoming increasingly important on the global stage. Hong Kong, often described as Asia's World City, is situated right at the heart of the continent. It is one of the world's leading financial centres, an international hub for business, a gateway to China and a springboard to other Asian cities.
Best Universities in Asia
Asian universities have become a force to be reckoned with, and Hong Kong has some of the best. High priority is given to education in the city, at both family and government level.
Jobs & Career Development
Hong Kong is the number-one choice for international businesses to establish their regional headquarters; it currently hosts about 7,600 overseas companies. Graduating from a university here allows you to establish a strong professional network, giving you a head start in your career.
East Meets West
Ranked as the most culturally integrated economy in the world (Globalization Index, 2010), Hong Kong's status as an international city and the rich ethnic tapestry among its local inhabitants both make for a culture unique blend of eastern and western influences.
One of the world's safest cities, Hong Kong has a remarkably low crime rate next to other comparable places. In the most recent Safe Cities Index published by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), Hong Kong ranked ninth in the world for personal safety.
Not only that Hong Kong offers gorgeous night views, towering skyscrapers and vibrant street markets, the city is endowed with extraordinary hiking trails, vast sea and beautiful beaches. Hong Kong also offers a wide variety of delicious dining outlets from all over the world. For those who want to venture further afield, the city is also conveniently located within easy reach of much of the rest of Asia, including major cities such as Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai and Bangkok.
