Student reviews of the best engineering schools in Asia

Before choosing any academic institution for your future Engineering studies, you should first see what others students have to say. You’ll get a better idea about the academic and social environment, classes, and the overall experience.

Here are a few examples, but you can find many others on each university page on our portals:

Tsinghua University – student review

“I’ve learned much more than I expected. One will never regret choosing Tsinghua University at any of the stages in his or her life. But it’s worth mentioning that most of your classmates will be very hard-working, and you have to do so if you don’t want to seem stupid or gain low grades in presentations and assignments.

For the program, it’s an excellent one with a high student-faculty ratio. You can get in touch well with professors and seniors, and any of your good work will be remembered.”

Nanyang Technological University – student review

“Administration support is consistent and comprehensive. Facilities are world-class, and the school provides many opportunities in various things. Social support is available, and students are not overly competitive.”

Hong Kong Polytechnic University – student review

“Teachers are professional and passionate, I enjoy the classes and appreciate the knowledge I acquired while studying this programme. The entry scholarship offered by the school has offered me opportunities to explore (exchange in Europe, summer school in China) without financial pressure.”

The University of Tokyo – student review

“The University of Tokyo is one of the best and amazing universities. The professors are extremely good in their various areas of expertise. The administration staff of the student office are very much hard-working and attend to every student according to their needs on time.

Lectures are conducted in English, and the course work, research work, and laboratory seminars shape students well and bring out the best in them. Being surrounded by international students makes school life in Japan quite interesting.

On my side, the Japanese language was a challenge because I was surrounded by international students and some Japanese students who speak perfect English, which made me very comfortable.”

Seoul National University – student review

“My university taught me to think outside the box and to strive to learn, work, and study at the same time. The classes were practical and focused on my work.”
