HKUST boat-trip Saikung National Geopark Hong Kong (6)

Every year the management department at HKUST goes for a boat trip around the Saikung peninsula sailing through the national geopark and visiting some deserted white-sand beach. This year, however, marks a occasion in my life. After 5 years of doing a PhD at HKUST I will be graduating and leaving Hong Kong for a […]

Florida State University Campus (24)

Florida State University was my academic home for 6 months while I was on a research attachment to the United States. I’ve been to a fair share of campuses throughout the united states, and though there’s nothing too extraordinary about the FSU campus it was nicer than I expected.

On a gorgeous sunny blue skies day I took out my newly bought Sony Alpha55 camera for a spin to try and capture the true beauty of the Sai Kung Peninsula surrounding my university.

Studying in HK: University Apartments & Flatmates

It’s been over two years for me at HKUST so I figure it about time to tell something a bit more about the time spent here. Academics aside, being an international post-graduate student at HKUST is definitely not an easy experience, and there are many reasons for that. One of those has to do with […]

HKUST campus.26.jpg

There are a few special advantages to studying with HKUST that have nothing to do with academics and research. There’s little doubt in my mind that the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has a campus with the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen quite a few universities. On a clear […]
