Bachelor Digital Media – Cooperation City University of Hong Kong


I thought it was a great opportunity to go abroad for two years because it is quite a long time. I thought that you get a better insight of the other country. It’s a double-degree programme. I love to experience different cultures. In Germany there is a total different culture than in Hong Kong. The first three semesters you will study at Leuphana, and then you will have another four semesters at City University, and then the last one, which is basically writing the bachelor thesis, is at Leuphana again. At Leuphana University I can learn more about historical and philosophical stuff, that I cannot learn at City University. You will not learn about how to use a progamme, but you can learn more about the history of the programme and go to the basics of how to function a programme. Here, we can also do some practical stuff, for example we can trim videos and do some sound mixing. In Hong Kong the major Creative Media is more practical, so I thought it is a very good combination to the more theoretical side at Leuphana. I really like the City University of Hong Kong because the professors were really open-minded, so we could always approach them, and they helped for everything, even for stuff that wasn’t course-related. The City University itself is like in the middle of the city, so it’s very easy to get around from there. And it’s very modern. The technical equipment is really good, that we were able to use. You’re not just an exchange, but you’re full-time student there, so I think the experience is quite different because you really live there for two years and you get all the insights from the life and from the city. We can experience a different culture, we are living in a different society, that we’ve never experienced before, and we can meet so many people. You can share ideas with them, which is some kind of creative and inspiring. I would really recommend this programme to people, who are interested in different cultures, not just in the Hong Kong culture, because there are many, many international people over there. It took me some time to adapt to that, but in the end, also because I was involved in some of the societies, and found many friends, I didn’t really miss home in that time and I really adapted to the Hong Kong living. I was always waiting for the cultural shock, but I actually never got it. I got it when I came back to Germany.
