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."

LI, Connie Ka Man

2016 BSc graduate (major in Chemistry)

2014 graduate of Higher Diploma in Chemical Technology from Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE)

"Here in HKU you can always find opportunities to equip yourself, from academic knowledge to interpersonal skills. During my study, I have met many great teachers who are not only devoted in frontier research, but also value the cultivation of next generation of scientists. I had the chance to work as an intern under the supervision of a Chemistry professor, through which I have gained valuable skills in both research and communication. I also went to the summer school of University College London and joined a service trip to Malaysia. All these diverse learning experiences have not only broadened my global perspective, but have also trained me to become an all-rounded person for challenges ahead. Studying in HKU is definitely the most unforgettable experience in my life."
