I chose the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Sport Development with Coaching because the program aligns with my career as a football coach plus I can complete it in 18 months. Being a mature student with a full-time job, there were a lot of challenges including time management and sacrifices coming my way. Fortunately, my lecturers have been very helpful and experienced in the field. With them I was inspired to learn more especially in sport coaching and to successfully obtain my bachelor’s degree.

The UoL International Program at HKU Space offered the unique opportunity to gain an international education from a globally-renowned university (UoL) in my home city. Doing the BSc Economics and Management provided a very well-rounded and in-depth education of both economics and general business. Studying with HKU SPACE also gave me the opportunity to attend intensive revision classes with foreign professors closer to the exam date, which had a hugely positive impact on exam performance. The degree has fortified my quantitative and qualitative skills, and achieving a first class honours has opened doors for me to pursue further education at the world’s top business schools.
