Student and Alumni Sharing
I was fascinated by how such a prestigious degree from one of world’s best social science and management universities could be offered and studied in Hong Kong and around any corner of the world. Graduating with first-class honours from the programme has opened up numerous paths for me in both graduate studies and career opportunities. I am sincerely grateful to the University of London and HKU SPACE IC for providing this once in a lifetime opportunity.
We need to make critical decisions throughout our lives. Choosing to study a top-up degree in HKU SPACE International College is one of the best decisions made in my life. I have found my ideal career path after studying this programme, and started my job in the advertising field. I enjoy the positive study atmosphere in IC very much. Peers are helping each other with valuable advice and experience sharing. We study, play and grow up together. I will never forget the study journey in IC.
Also, I was one of the class representatives, responsible for being the communicator between fellow classmates and the school. Different units of the school are willing to listen and are committed to improving students’ learning experience.
This programme truly opened my eyes to the values and influences of Asian cultures. The lecturers are knowledgeable and easily approachable and the programme is structured to enhance both language learning and understanding of Asian societies and cultures. This programme also helped me develop and deepen various skills such as writing and communication. I sincerely recommend this programme to students who are interested in Asian cultures and societies.
This programme offered me various opportunities to further understand Asian cultures and societies, as well as a chance to upgrade myself by learning the Japanese language. Most importantly, tutors in Hong Kong are so helpful that they are always willing to encourage and give advice to students. I would like to thank both Hong Kong tutors and UWA lecturers for their guidance during my study.
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Sport Development with Coaching programme not only equipped me with profound and practical sport development and coaching knowledge, but also provided working opportunities for me to practice and expand my networks in the sport industry. Being a mature student with a full time job, there were lots of challenges studying in full time mode. Yet, this comprehensive 18-month programme enabled me to achieve my goal, which is to obtain the qualification of the bachelor degree. Furthermore, this programme is accredited as HKQF Level 5^ that would further benefit my career development. (^ This programme is successfully accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ).

In the past two years, I got much support from the overseas lecturers and local teachers who provided high quality education to us. It was a great experience to study this top-up degree programme. Moreover, I got a precious opportunity to go to Edinburgh campus to study for a semester. I have widened my horizon through studying and interacting with international students and visiting many European countries. I was very thankful for receiving the scholarship and financial assistance from the programme, otherwise, I couldn’t have such unforgettable experience!
The programme has strengthened my creative thinking skills and design technique. I was inspired by the experienced tutors who constantly encouraged students to explore design in different contexts. HKU SPACE International College is the place where I found my passion for design.
