2016 BEd & BSc graduate

"This pioneering programme, BEd & BSc 5-year double degree, has provided me with ample opportunities — I have learned a lot from both education and science courses and I had the chance to participate in the UNESCO teaching programme. Out of classrooms, I am busy establishing a Chinese Orchestra with my friends here. HKU really provides a large stage for students to develop and equip themselves. Please enjoy your life here!”
