CHAN Lai Ying Alex

2020 BSc graduate (Major in Ecology & Biodiversity)

2017 graduate of Associate Degree of Science in Environmental Studies from City University of Hong Kong

"HKU is where people try tirelessly to achieve expertise. There are many opportunities for undergraduates to explore and to learn. For me, engaging in the Summer Research Fellowship (SRF) was a fruitful experience to work hand-in-hand with academics and professionals to produce quality research. I was trained for field sampling, laboratory works and data analyzes. It was inspirational and fulfilling to complete a self-initiated project and contribute to the field I am most interested in – Molecular Ecology, with the invaluable support and assistance from my supervisor. From that, I am now determined to continue my journey in scientific research."

 

LAI, Steven Yu Hin

2017 BSc Graduate (major in Statistics)

2014 graduate of Associate Degree in Statistics and Data Science from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Community College

"Among the direct admission offers from local universities, I was most impressed by the 6901 BSc programme. Thanks for the ample learning opportunities that the Faculty offers, I had the chance to go on exchange at the University of Calgary. It was a great experience to study with students from every corner of the globe, exposing myself to foreign culture and people. The exchange study was really eye-opening and full of joy which I will never forget in my life."

CHAU, Kary Ka Yan

2018 BSc graduate (major in Biological Sciences and minor in Education)

2015 graduate of Associate Degree in Science from HKU SPACE Community College

Kary chose to extend her study to take more education courses to fulfill her career aspirations.

"Studying at HKU is a journey, not a destination. I would say my journey here at HKU is a very rewarding one. I do not only receive quality science education here, but also have flexibility to enrich my studies according to my interest and career aspirations. The Minor I take in Education broadens my horizons beyond my area of specialisation — Biological Sciences, enhancing my understanding of teaching theories and the educational system in Hong Kong. This is truly inspiring and enables me to develop my interest and strengths."
