Hong Kong

Hong Kong has more than 7 million inhabitants. It is part of China, but it enjoys a special status that makes it a very attractive financial and economic hub and a fertile ground for pro-democracy movements.

Hong Kong is much more than just a stopover in Asia!


Whether for a holiday, education, work...

Hong Kong is a dynamic international city. It is a meeting ground for many different cultures. It is one of the world’s leading financial centres and a gateway to Asia. Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan place, a true cultural melting pot and a paradise for shopping lovers. The city offers excellent international cuisine, a colourful nightlife, and lively festivals and fairs. Not to mention it is a top notch educational hub thanks to its research-focused universities, its flexible higher education system and its widely recognized diplomas and global exam assessment criteria. Indeed, the QS 2016 World University ranking included seven Hong Kong-based universities, four of which were ranked among the top 55 in the world! Impressive for a city of just 7 million inhabitants.
