不論同學打算向哪一個方向發展,學院眾多的學系或主修都能給予同學各種機會,而課程的設計以及講師的水平令同學在短時間內融入與中學截然不同的學習環境。以我的主修人文學科 (Humanities) 為例,很多人也許覺得此科出路不多,這其實是一種誤解。人文學科包含了文、史、哲三大學術範疇,對於有志在非聯招報讀這三個科系的同學自然是首選。但即使同學打算同時報讀其他學科,如文化科系、創意媒體,甚至是商科,它也會帶給你意想不到的「收穫」。因為數個核心科目在傳授紮實的理論及知識的同時亦著重訓練同學的邏輯及批判性思考。這種獨立思考的能力令同學在非聯招收生中最重要的面試環節有一定的優勢。我在畢業時便獲數個迥然不同的學系所錄取,有中大的哲學系、浸大的宗哲系,也有屬於商科的城大市場營銷學系。

A direct entry year 2 offer of HKU SPACE Community College not only surprised me, but it also gave me confidence when I was situated in a competitive studying arena in HKU the next year after. This articulation back to UGC funded university allowed me to have understood that striving hard for one’s goal should never be given up, and you could only thread this pathway so as to realize personal wishes and actualize oneself gratifyingly.

沒有今天到港大及劍橋的機會! ”

改寫我人生的轉捩點,莫過於港大附屬學院的一年,我敢說,沒有港大附屬學院,沒有今天到港大及劍橋的機會。學院的副學士課程設計新穎多元,啟發學生獨立思考,讓學生有充份機會準備大學的學習模式。講師的專業知識及教學方法更是獨當一面,例如 Ms Jane Wong 的商業英語傳意課程、Dr Ming 的邏輯及批判思考課程等,有趣實用,相比起不少傳統課程,有過之而無不及,為我日後的學習、研究及工作打好了良好的基礎,畢生受用。由面對 JUPAS 沒有任何取錄,前路茫茫的一刻,到今天能夠拿獎學金進入劍橋大學實現自己的夢想,港大附屬學院的副學士課程,實在功不可沒。
