Study location

Hong Kong: Asia's World City

Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory south to Mainland China and east to Macao in East Asia. With around 7.2 million Hong Kongers of various nationalities in a territory of 1,104 kilometers square, Hong Kong is the world's fourth-most densely populated territory.

Under the principle of "one country, two systems", Hong Kong maintains a separate political and economic system from China. Hong Kong is also one of the world's most significant financial centers, with the highest Financial Development Index score and consistently ranks as the world's most competitive and freest economic entity.


Except for students offered government-funded places on the Postgraduate Certificate in Law programme (PCLL), who are eligible to apply for student residence, all taught postgraduate students should seek off-campus accommodation as early as possible before arriving in Hong Kong. More information about off-campus accommodation are available here.

Leisure activities

Students can enjoy numerous shops, restaurants, movie theatres, and even ice-skating in Festival Walk, a large shopping mall conveniently located just across the street from the campus. Transportation is easy and convenient from the campus, as our stop, Kowloon Tong, serves as the transportation hub for downtown Central, Kowloon, and the New Territories.
