2011Year 2, Bachelor of Social Sciences (Honours) in Psychology, City University of Hong Kong
“It was fruitful studying at the College as the College has successfully maintained a very good learning atmosphere. The lecturers I met are all knowledgeable, patient and experienced, and they are always willing to spend time after class to answer our questions. Feedback from them proves to be very useful and they are prone to share their own valuable work experience in class with us.
Besides, the College has also provided students with many supports; from time to time the college counsellors organised talks on university admission, interviewing skills, and other workshops on personal development as well. Students are also welcomed to make appointments with the counsellors anytime in order to seek their advice. In short, the past two years in the College has well-equipped me to embrace the university life in the coming years. I have to admit that the Psychology programme is quite challenging and by all means, you need to work very hard on it. However, assistance and supports from the lecturers and classmates are always there and I can proudly say I am now much more confident about my future career path than ever before.”

2011Year 2, BSc (Hons) in Hotel Management, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
“My life in the Higher Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management programme was truly fruitful. It is not just a place to learn, but also an excellent platform to help prepare my future career path. During the past two years, I gained a great deal of skills and knowledge from the professional lecturers who are all experienced in the hotel industry. They were always willing to share, support and give advice to all the students, whether it is on academic or life event planning.
My job placement in The Peninsula Hong Kong as a secretary of Executive Chef in Chef’s office and a coordinator in Food & Beverage Office also meant so much to me as well. I have learnt a great deal in this legendary 5-star hotel including how to meet and exceed customers’ expectations with a good customer service and professional manner.”

“HKU SPACE Po Leung Kuk Stanley Ho Community College is a light in the dark which guides me the way to find and achieve my career target. I still remembered the result announcement day of my A-level examination, it was not good at all and I really wanted to give up my study. I then came across with the lecturers of the College, who explained the programme syllabus in great details and offered me the opportunity to study the Higher Diploma in Business (Accounting and Financial Planning) programme here.
As the lecturers in the College are all professionals such as chartered accountants or financial planners and so on, it is a natural progression they like to share their own experience at work with students instead of lecturing by means of the text books alone. Students were always encouraged to raise questions, and the learning atmosphere was excellent as well. Apart from that, I also enjoyed studying at the College as the campus provided a really comfortable environment for me to study and hang out with my classmates.”

“Apart from studying the academic theories, the TEM proogramme also provided me with ample opportunities to gain real-life practice from various placements, such as Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade, and Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens. These events not only helped broaden my horizon, but also allowed me to further develop my communication skills and my ability to handle odds and emergency. My interest towards the tourism and events industry grew when I undertook the summer internship at Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association.
I particularly appreciated all the lecturers who are well-equipped with professional knowledge and most importantly, they like to share their real-life experiences with us.”

2010Year 2, Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Convention and Event Management, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
The Higher Diploma in Tourism and Events Management programme offered by the College provided me with professional training, specialised knowledge and practical job placements that enabled me to attain proficiency in the field of my interest.
Throughout the past 2 years, I was given ample opportunities to gain hands-on experiences and broaden my horizon in different events in Hong Kong, such as Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade, Hong Kong East Asian Games, Brands and Products Expo etc. My inter-personal and communication skills were enhanced. All these valuable experiences allowed me to be familiarised with various event organisations. Moreover, the internship experience gained in EGL Tours Company has further strengthened my knowledge and deepened my interest towards the tourism industry.
Lecturers are well equipped with professional knowledge and they would never hesitate to offer you guidance. I was always impressed by their sharing of real-life experiences from the tourism and hospitality field, thereby attending their lectures was always worthwhile. Besides, as English is the medium of instruction in the College, students can improve their language abilities, both written and spoken, through different activities that regularly held in the English Corner and the interactive teaching method by the native English teachers.
Studying at the College was an enjoyable experience which had really enriched my learning experience.
2010Year 2, BBA (Hons) Accounting, Hong Kong Baptist University
After completing the Higher Diploma in Business (Accounting) programme at the College, I was fortunate to further my study to the Year 2 of BBA (Hons) Accounting programme offered by the Hong Kong Baptist University.
I found that the 2-year experience in the College was valuable and beneficial to me in many aspects. Firstly, the programme content was more or less the same as those in the University Year 1 level. Secondly, the teaching mode at the College was a portrait of the university life, which I would say the 2-year Higher Diploma programme provided a smooth transit for students from secondary schools to the universities. Thirdly, all lecturers were competent in terms of the subject knowledge and presentation skills. Last but not least, sufficient course works and projects were assigned to students so that we could have a good grasp of time management and the wealth of opportunities to co-operate with others.
During the past 2 years, I managed to build my confidence in studying, and was very glad to realise the most suitable learning method for me as well. Studying at the College was really a smart choice!
