    Hey Mouhit , how was your first year so far? I'm going to apply at the faculty in the next application process, in which my first day there will be 22 Sept 2018, I read every possible review and info about the faculty on the internet but still I don't have idea about further details like whether lecturers are perfect at teaching or whether the faculty itself have good regonition to find good job opportunities after graduation ? If you have any other detail you would like to inform me I would be very glad.Thanks in advance

    Sure, I know it can be a big step coming over here to study! I've personally not stayed in dorms, I've not heard good things and a lot of people who start off there usually end up moving out. I stay privately in a flat not far from the uni that I got through a student agency. There's two agency's that can help you get a flat, one is called foreigners and the other forstudents. I've been with both, and I personally prefer foreigners, many students have complained about forstudents but I won't go into that right now.
    About the course and studying, yes it's tough, especially the first two years as you're trying to get used to the system etc. You'll have a lot of tests throughout the semester, then a credit at the end before sitting a final exam. But the good thing here is that students help each other out. There's lots of notes, past papers etc and advice from upper years to help you get through the years.
    Hope that helps a little, feel free to ask any more questions.

    Yes there are quite a few muslim students. To be pretty honest, I've found Czech people in HK are a little...err...how can I put it...distant towards foreigners/students, or maybe I should say not very receptive, and maybe that could be because I have darker skin colour. There is some unfairness in the university, and it depends on the who your lecturer is, what mood they are in etc. I try not to think about whether this is directed at certain people or not but you will wonder at times why you failed an exam (failing is not uncommon). There's probably a lot more i could say, but I don't want to scare you or put you off.
    Other than that, HK itself is a small town, really easy to get around, find stuff, and beautiful.
    Hi MedGTL, I am aiming at HK, Sep 2018 entry. I'd like to know more about the reference to a Prof's moods and biases. I'd hate to fail an exam just because the teacher does not like my face. I am there to study and become a doctor , not play nice just to pass. Is this fairly common in HK? I've heard some scary stories of some med schools in eastern Europe where students had to pay a prof just to pass....and have quite often come across a reference to teacher's moods and likings. I am ok with a little discrimination based on race...to be expected I guess. But it should not have any bearing on academics IMO.

    Hello, I'm a student in HK, open for any questions if you need help..
    Hey. How much is the pass percentage? Are the professors racist? Is the syllabus difficult to cope up with? What are the post graduation opportunities like for UK AND USA? I heard that there are no textbook, who do you study then?

    I have heard of stuff like this,this is largely because of their president who is anti-immigrant but others have brushed it off as something that many people may use as an excuse just because they couldn't get through the exams, so I guess it depends from person to person,Are you also applying to Prague?I believe the situation is much better there as it is a modern progressive city, I have my exam on this saturday, looking for some like-minded individuals.
