I get asked many times why I chose China instead of my own country coming from a renowned technical country. However, I see no difference in quality. On the contrary, I think the overall gain to get my degree in China is a lot more competitive than a Swedish degree, as I do not only learn my major, but the language and culture that today is required in many fields, and for engineers sometimes a requirement to have certain language skills in order to climb the corporate ladder.
Alexander Keith Whittaker

The first day I came to this university with my parents, we found the campus is so big and so colorful. Millions of trees around me and very convinient for anything. People here is friendly and students are so hard in study. I love HUST! I am proud of being a HUSTer and hope HUST will be proud of me in the future!
