Summary Mainland China and Hong Kong are two representatives during the Cold War, standing on the opposite side. They had close connections in the past, and share much similarities at the present. After the Cold War, particularly after the handover in 1997, many migrants moved to Hong Kong to seek more opportunities and became connected with the world. This study will review the flow of the students from Mainland China and Hong Kong pursuing their higher education. Particularly, a comparative study in a longer period will be examined, including the flow of the Hong Kong students to Mainland China for higher education before 1949, the stagnation during the Cold War, as well as the flow from Mainland China to Hong Kong after 1997.
