Overall Experience
I learned that I need to be more proactive when it comes to studying abroad and traveling. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
There is so much to gain from this experience. First a sense of independence. Though you're living in an unfamiliar area it is incredibly easy to get around Hong Kong and learn as much about the culture as possible. Trust yourself and motivate yourself to try new things and meet people from different backgrounds and experiences.... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

See different places, makes you think more about what you want to do with your life and possibilities as far as work, living, languages, places you want to see, etc. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Traveling and learning about a culture and landscape that is totally unique, meeting nice people from around the world. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned about a culture I did not know much about. I explored southeast Asia with amazing people that I met at CUHK. I studied psychology from a new perspective. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I think I grew up on this program. You learn how to handle yourself in a variety of diverse environments. It helped me become more confident, more self-assured and it will definitely give you a better perspective on what it means to be a global citizen and will give you a more objective view of American culture. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Texas at Austin: Chinese University of Hong Kong
I had to be more independent and a better problem solver, since I couldn't ask for help from my parents. I also learned to be more adaptable and adventurous; I traveled to so many places that I've never been before and stepped out of my comfort zone. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
