Kato Yuka (Japan)
I chose EdUHK because it has well-structured programmes for students and it is ranked among the top universities for Education in Asia. One of the major things I learned at EdUHK is the passion people have for education, which includes the teachers who model for us, our seniors who guide us, and our peers who inspire us to improve ourselves. I would recommend others to study here because there are plenty of things to learn during both intra- and extra-curricular activities that could help one grow academically and socially.
Cheong Bing Qiang (Malaysia)
EdUHK is indeed a resourceful educational institution where you can pursue your tertiary education with its extensivity and inclusivity. From the broad but comprehensive curriculum, patient and caring lecturers and professors, abundance of learning opportunities out of the campus, to the diversity of students in our school, I would highly recommend students of different backgrounds to pursue your studies with EdUHK!
