When you’re going to Hong Kong University, you’ll be free to choose any course at the Arts Faculty and other faculties that you like, although some courses are very popular and might very soon be full. Usually, exchange students will be placed to live in international halls. You might have to share a room and be prepared for rules that are a bit stricter than what you’re used to. (Guests are usually not allowed overnight, etc.). On-campus housing is, however, to be preferred over living off-campus, as this is very expensive. For the rest, the costs for your stay will be relatively low as most teachers don’t ask you to buy books and the on-campus rent is quite low. Students are enthusiastic about the city of Hong Kong and the surrounding area, and mention that it is an ideal location from which to travel to other places in Asia.
