The ultimate aim of choosing Associate Degree programmes is to allow oneself having the opportunity to get exposed to the diversity of articulation pathways to university. There is no confinement in sub-degree programme learning and this wide-open creative access allows students to elaborate their wisdom and intelligence in learning, which in turn, making themselves capable learners to be proficient enough for further university education.

  • 2006-2009 Higher Diploma in Information Technology
  • 2009-2012 CUHK Bachelor of Computer Science
  • 2012-2013 HKBU Master of Science (MSc) in Information Technology Management

I have been fond of IT learning ever since childhood. The interactive teaching and learning here in this College allows me to acquire knowledge through constant group-projects and class presentations. When looking back, it might have been a hard and tough procedure but all those hardships were worthwhile when I finally excelled in my university study, discovering that the mode of teaching and learning of HKU SPACE CC is effective for the growth of young learners.

  • 2007-08 Associate of Applied Science in Physical Science^
  • 2008-11 HKU Bachelor of Science
  • Present Senior Associate, Assurance, PricewaterhouseCoopers Limited

Failure in public exam did not put me off. Judging from all perspectives, HKU SPACE CC was my best choice then. The learning atmosphere here was fantastic; lecturers were knowledgeable and helpful in making me learn. After school, students gathered together for discussion and preparation for assignments. All these fond memories had proven that I made the right choice of post-secondary study. I hope failures in public exams won’t get discouraged simply by that one high-risk academic assessment. There are all the time other pathways for better articulation to career and study.

^Associate of Applied Science in Physical Science was re-titled as Associate of Science.

  • 2008-2010 Higher Diploma in Business (Marketing and Media)
  • 2010-2012 HKU Bachelor of Arts
  • Present Marketing Executive, Swire Resources Limited

After contracting myself with Higher Diploma study, I was thinking I might perhaps thread a career path for the rest of my life, yet the HD programme offered by HKU SPACE Community College not only gave me an opportunity to articulate to bachelor degree programme study locally or overseas, but it also made me more conscious of my improved mode of learning and study skills. I now understand that a smooth journey of progression route is of course important to one’s development, but a long and winding narrow lane will also let us acquire beautiful scenery and stunning sights when we are so aware of what lies ahead and what we are heading for.

  • 2007-2010 Higher Diploma in Corporate Communication and Management^
  • 2010-2012 CUHK Bachelor of Journalism and Communication
  • Present Marketing Communications Executive, Asia Miles Limited

The release of HKCEE results really made me flabbergasted. I did and prepared so hard and well, but I was totally appalled by the result slip when I discovered that everything was not paid off. At that time, when the certificate read failures in most subjects, I was wondering whether I could get back to the threshold of that door of entering into university again, but HKU SPACE Community College offered a second chance to have saved me from distress and being too entrenched into those failures and self –rebuke. I was then made more confident. Yes of course, together with the supports from the college and knowledgeable teachers, I was coming back totally with full swing to head for university, and finally I was successful!

^ Higher Diploma in Corporate Communication and Management was re-titled as Higher Diploma in Public Relations and Corporate Communications.

  • 2004–2005 Associate of Arts
  • 2005–2007 HKU Bachelor of Arts
  • 2007–2009 Management Trainee Program, Li & Fung (Trading) Ltd
  • 2013–2014 CityUHK Master of Arts in Global Business Management
  • Present Specialized in Marketing Communications in Information Technology Industry (Oracle, Microsoft, LinkedIn)

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.

“在港大附屬學院的最大得著是
‘ Teach you how to learn’,令我畢生受用!”

除了可以非聯招的途徑上大學,在港大附屬學院的最大得著是這裡 “Teach you how to learn”。每個人總有離開校園的一天,那並不代表我們就此停止學習。港大附屬學院擁有一套完善的教學系統及制度、捉緊時代脈搏的專業導師、豐富的大學資源等,令今天已離開學院三年的我,仍然懂得運用所學的 critical thinking 及專業的 framework,畢生受用。

“我敢說,沒有港大附屬學院,
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。
