  • 2015-16 Associate of Arts in Media, Cultural and Creative Studies [AD Year 1 articulated to BA Year 1]
  • Offer received: CUHK Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Studies Year 1

與其說文學副學士 (媒體、文化及創意) 的課程只是單純一個科目,不如說這個課程教導我們該以哪種態度面對這個世界。在課堂中,老師經常鼓勵同學以批判思維去思考日常的大小事,並教導我們以不同層面角度看同一件事物,從中同學可以對社會的意識形態及文化有更深一層的體會和認識。

A positive attitude changes everything. Studying in Associate Degree is not a failure but another chance for me to prepare for receiving the higher education. Actions speak louder than words. Hard work is very important since the future is created by our own hands. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

My gain in SPACE is beyond expectation because the new challenges I encountered here had forced me to grow up. There are always paths to our destinations and though it may not be the way people agree with, it sure will be the best if we are determined about it.

As a business and science student in secondary education, I had never thought of studying in arts fields. I think it is essential to discover and choose a programme based on our own interests in tertiary education so we will gain plenty of enjoyment but not anxieties in future.
