With the start-up of grading time for college entrance exam, the process of inland students applying for Hongkong university has gone into the end, according to the report from inland media, the applying number has cut down largely this year, some school even reduce 20-30 percent, people are not blind to the Hongkong university as the past years from the figures.
There are 12 universities in Hongkong, among them only The Chinese University of Hong Kong and City University of Hong Kong take part in the college entrance exam recruitment, in except of the two universities, according to the figure provided by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and other six universities, the number comparing with last year has also decreased 20-30 percent, some even to 50 percent.
The reason for it can generally concluded as the follows, the pressure from the financial crisis, the difficulty for applying the scholarship and the enlarging number going abroad students, these three are the main reasons to cause the phenomenon of reduced number to register the Hongkong university. A few years ago, the hot of financial major makes a lot of inland students choosing Hongkong universities to study international financial business. Last year, the break-up of financial crisis has definitely influenced their major choice making, and also makes them realized that the appying for Hongkong universities is that easy as they think originally. After reading this year’s figures, we would like to analyze their future career out of school, they are either staying at Hongkong, or back to inland and go abroad to futher development.
Hongkong univesities are all very international, and are always the universities belonging to our chinese. Comparing with the native Hongkong students, the inland students are more diligent and have a strong desire for knowledge, they like enjoying in the lab and library, but at the ability of creativity and analysis, they are less excellent than the natives. Not like the students of inland, the local students are unconcern to their study, and do not like having a rough time, but they are quite self, independent and confident. The language problem must be another big barrier for those inland students, they are always walking in their own social zone and feel difficult to blend into the local world. 70 percent are depressed and anxious in their lives, because they think they have distance between the local in behavior, living style and thoughts. There will also 20 percent students can not stop home-sick going back to homeland. To those students in Hongkong, some professors advice that the best way is to enjoy the local culture.
