Studying at the College for two years did not only build up my knowledge in tourism and event management field through participating in lots of placements, but also helped me to find my future career goal. Besides, lecturers’ sharing was so useful that provided me with an insight about the real working environment in tourism industry.

Although there were conflicts and difficulties throughout the preparation process, it was so happy to see the event was conducted smoothly finally.

I had never thought of enrolling to one of the best local university, CUHK, after having unsatisfactory performance in public examinations. I am very thankful for the College lecturers who are passionate to teach and willing to give me assistance whenever I need help. In these two years, I achieved more in-depth biochemistry knowledge which prepares me to study at university. Other than that, the on-site visit to Cathay Pacific Catering Services as well as the Seoul Study Tour broadened my horizons and brought me inspirations. The College not only gives me knowledge, but also enlightenment that strengthens me to be a more intelligent, insightful and mature individual.

2013Advancement to BBA (Hons) in Accountancy, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Two degree offers received: - BBA (Hons) in Accountancy, Poly U - Year 2, BBA (Hons) — Accounting Concentration, HKBU
Being an accountant is my career goal for ages. However, I did not have a chance to study accounting before being admitted to the College. In the past, I was so afraid that there would be a hard time coping with the accounting knowledge as I had not acquired any relevant concepts before. However, the curricular and syllabi were so well-designed that I could handle the concepts easily. Besides, the professional lecturers were able to explain each concept in a detailed way, which could be easily understood by students. Moreover, the College offered a wide variety of competitions for me to participate in. These competitions were considered as very valuable opportunities to let me apply the knowledge practically. They undoubtedly increased my competence as well as improved my communication skills. Lastly, the friends I met here are always supportive and treat me nicely. Attending lectures at the College is regarded as enjoyable for me that I would never regret.

Throughout the two years at the College, not only did I acquire knowledge regarding Social Sciences and Psychology which helped consolidate my academic basis, I also understood and knew myself better. Like many others, I was anxious when I first came to the College. I chose Psychology back then only because I knew I like working with others, especially children, and I was interested in a career relating to counselling. However, with exposure to different areas of Psychology through different courses, joining talks and workshops organised by the College, learning lecturers’ experiences and having heard their advices, I discovered and realised my interest and how my career pathway should be. Besides academic aspects, the College also helped mold me into a better person with greater confidence.

I enjoyed my time studying at the College. HD in Nutrition and Food Management is a well-designed programme which focuses on both theoretical and practical aspects. Not only can we learn theories about nutritional science and food service systems, but also practically design and cook a balanced diet ourselves. It is an ideal place for us to flourish our interest in nutritional science. Also, lecturers at the College are friendly and passionate in teaching. They have taught us many useful things aside from theories such as studying skills in tertiary education.

Studying the HD in Nutrition and Food Management programme has equipped me with both a strong foundation of theories such as biochemistry and food chemistry, as well as practical knowledge, for example: food service operation and the skills of report writing.

At the College, l had met a lot of friends and we shared a lot of unforgettable memories, from practical cooking to food marketing presentations. There are good facilities to help students build up excellent study atmosphere. The College also provides good support such as counselling and talks from professionals in industry, and as a result, I have found my direction during these past two years of college life.

I studied an Associate Degree since I was deeply frustrated by the result of my AL exam; I studied Human Resource Management and Development at the College since I found that this programme allowed me to pursue further studies in social science and HR stream. Days in the College was not easy, I had to adapt the learning style which is different from secondary school. Furthermore, waiting for an interview did cost my patience, not to mention an offer, Fortunately, I got lots of support from the counsellors and friends who keep encouraging me to look for the good. Every dark side has a silver lining. I am really glad to be a university student.
