Programme Aims and Features
The programme aims to strengthen students’ knowledge and skills in Nursing Studies and to improve students’ language proficiency as well as analytical and communication skills. It is a two-year programme aimed to provide the basic academic and professional training to students interested in the Nursing Studies related bachelor's degree programmes.
The first-year curriculum includes introductory courses that help students acquire the basic knowledge of nursing studies. The second-year curriculum covers advanced courses which prepare students to articulate to the senior years of relevant degree programmes at local or overseas universities.
The programme is delivered through the course materials, class discussions, practicum and assessments where students will learn through individual tasks and group projects.

2 years in AHS programme was not a cakewalk for me, but it was worth it. All the courses, practicum were very intense as it provided various opportunities to equip students to step in nursing field. Nursing is not only about practicing skills, but also requiring your evidence based, professional knowledge. Apart from the theories and human physiology, practicum in different health care settings was also provided to every student. This valuable experience inspired and motivated us to be more proactive in learning and caring. Challenges, difficulties and frustrations are unavoidable, but it is blessed to have many supportive companions and lecturers along these 2 years. The new journey in HKU has started, I am still grateful to have this precious memory in AHS.
Two years studied in HKU SPACE CC, from the start of college’s life to the acquisition of bachelor’s degree offer, what I took away is not only an offer in HKU or knowledge, but also the knowledge and attitude in being a nursing student and the relationship between my classmates, lecturers and tutors which help me to being a better me. Nursing study in CC is never an easy job, assessment, skill test, practicum, a large amount of information and knowledge need to remember. However, even the high workload or stress to us, it never diminish my enthusiasm in being a nurse and continue my study. It may due to the support and encourage giving by our lecturers. They taught us with their knowledge and experience patiently even we were doing wrongly, practiced the skills and went to the practicum with us. Before I had received the offer, I always felt scared and worried about my future. In that time, I always felt sad but my lecturers had given many support to me and tell me be confidence and never give up. They were finding a lot of methods to help us continue our studies in the university. Apart from the lecturers, in CC I found many comrades and friends that we are sustaining each other. We are fighting together towards the same target even now we study in HKU, the relationship between us is never a false appearance. We are relying on each other regardless happy or sad. Finally, we are studying HKU nursing degree together to continue our study. In CC, it is not just obtained an offer and then finished. We received the knowledge and skills from the class lecture and lab session. We learned what is empathy and other attitude of nurse through the practicum and lecturers. Our lecturers and tutors just like our friends that give us many support and advice. The friendship that I had in here is never end till now. What we gained in CC have enriched my life, and make me having more confidence in facing the new life in HKU and every trouble in the future to being a better me. Nothing is impossible, like getting an offer in the university, but it really needs to work hard.
