Hong-Kong

Introduction

Many Mainland students choose to study in Hong Kong in the recent years. Education in Hong Kong is advanced and tuition and living cost are low. Travelling from Mainland to Hong Kong takes only several hours, which is very convenience. Climate in Hong Kong is similar to that in Mainland, therefore there should be no problem for Mainlanders to adapt in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a diverse society with both cultures from Chinese and Western that widen the international perspective of Mainland students. Hong Kong universities provide a lot of scholarship application and this could minimize the financial burden of students.
 
Mainland students could continue to work in Hong Kong after graduation. Unemployment rate in Hong Kong is one of the lowest in the world, so Mainlanders do not have to worry for not being able to find a job in Hong Kong. Mainlanders could become Hong Kong permanent resident for living in Hong Kong for 7 years after graduation.
