An exchange semester in Hong Kong canceled? Here are the easiest solutions!

Was your exchange semester in Hong Kong canceled?

Did you have to cut short your autumn semester? Are you still looking for an option to study in Asia during spring? We have heard some unfortunate news from Hong Kong in recent months and followed the unfolding of events closely. The situation is very lamentable for everyone and we hope that things will improve very soon.

Lately, some universities have decided to call back their students from Hong Kong. Some have decided against sending students there for the upcoming spring semester.
