在港大附屬學院修讀工程學副學士課程,擴闊了我的視野,教我獲益良多。回想當初公開考試放榜時,知道自己的成績遠差於預期,我感到十分徬徨與迷惘。在網上看過資料後,選擇入讀港大附屬學院繼續學業。 修讀工程學課程,令我學習到各方面的專門知識,如電腦架構,程式設計和電路知識等。除此之外,學院亦著重通識教育,讓學生能全面發展,認識自我。 回望過去,學院不但提供另一條升學路徑,亦令我能更好裝備自己,面對困難。

失望的公開試成績,喚醒我考入本地大學的決心,重燃心中追尋大學夢的火焰。考入大學的途徑五花八門,而我則決定選擇港大附屬學院來完成夢想。 在此之前,我從沒有修讀任何與資訊科技相關的課程。作為資訊科技界新人,起初心中的確存在著一份惶恐,深恐自己底子與能力都不及他人。不過與其受恐懼的煎熬,何不轉換心態,相信自己實力,為自己拼博一回? 學院講師相當有心,我親切感受到他們對教學的熱誠。每當我遇到本科上的學習困難時,他們總會不厭其煩地重新講解一遍,使我的電腦概念愈見清晰,知識隨之而豐富。與此同時,我在學院認識了一群志同道合的好友,交流學習心得,並肩作戰,試問還有甚麼值得擔憂? 非聯招報名的策略是相當重要的,同學應清楚了解自己的實力和興趣,善用學校資源,選擇既相關又合符個人能力的科目。切忌心頭過高,道聽途說,因而浪費良機。 人,可以輸上千百萬次,但必須要嬴在最後一次。港大附屬學院,就是要獲得最後勝利的地方。送上我的座右銘 ─「人定勝天,命運掌握在自己手中!」願共勉之。

After failing the public examination, my ideal study path to study in local university was broken. HKU SPACE CC provided a chance for me to pursue high level education, and also helped me discover my interest in computing. At the beginning I was scared because I haven’t studied any computing subjects before. Later I found that it is not a problem as the programme structure is designed from easy to hard, even a beginner can follow as long as you want to learn. In addition, the lecturers are so friendly and helpful that they are always happy to answer our questions. I am extremely grateful to the lecturers who have helped me a lot in my study. Now I have been trained to be capable of developing application programmes and solving computer problems. Most importantly, there is a chance for me to study in university. HKU SPACE CC is a place for me to get familiar with the study mode in university, and also a place of self-affirmation.
