Student testimonials

“Living out of your comfort zone changes you as a person, it helps open your mind to new ideas and opportunities. From my exchange I developed many skills such as how to problem solve, communication skills and most importantly, I developed my self-confidence further. I feel taking part in an exchange program and living in a new country gave me a new perspective and allowed me to broaden my horizons as well as open my mind to new ways of life and cultures.”

Gina Pichilingi, Tourism BA
Semester abroad, University of Canberra, Australia

"Going into offices and talking to employees/alumni who have lived and worked in Hong Kong was very eye-opening. Visiting the agencies opened my eyes to the bigger picture and made me look beyond the fun and excitement of travelling abroad."

Field trip, Westminster Working Cultures – Hong Kong

"This was the best experience I have had whilst attending the University of Westminster. I feel so privileged to be a part of this trip. At times, the programme is challenging, but it opens your eyes and allows you to question in a way you have never been able to before. If I could, I would apply again a million times over.”
