Offer received: BSc in Computing and Information System, HKBU
When I still was a Form 5 student, my friend who had studied in HD IT showed me information about the security stream. It was the first time to hear about the programme and I found it interesting. After the HKDSE results had been released, he even took me to the Kowloon East Campus for the HD IT application. That was the beginning of my life in HKU SPACE CC. Some rumors declare that it is so hard to get a high GPA in the security stream. I hesitated at that time as to whether I should study this subject. It was a big challenge, but I still selected it as my further study area. I have never regretted to make the decision. Lecturers always introduce the knowledge with their working experience. So we can clearly understand the key points or the ideas within the notes. This knowledge will equip us to be professionals. I feel lucky to study in HKU SPACE CC HD IT. Besides the knowledge, lecturers even share their attitudes on how to treat others. We have to consider other's views. That's why I consider the tuition fee is worth it. I am pleased to accept the offer from Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Computing and Information System of HKBU. It will be a new stage for me to study. What the lecturers in HKU SPACE CC taught me can definitely help in my future studying and working. There is no difference between the salted fish and us if we don't have a dream. Lots of candidates just strive to study at university, but some of them have never thought about what job they want to do. I have found out. Being an information security professional is my dream. It pushes me to study hard. I hope that I can share my professional knowledge and experience with others. Security issues should be paid attention. I will strive my best to work in this field. All the knowledge that I learn will be included in my knowledge database to support my future job. I wish that I can make some contribution to the industry as well as the world.

Translation is not an easy task at all since it requires everlasting efforts to nurture one’s language proficiency and try out different translation approaches. Fortunately, all the translation teachers here are professional and patient in teaching students different aspects of translation. I’ve really gained a lot from this programme. It strengthens my interest in language studies. Hard work is everything. Building a vocabulary bank and reading more books do help.

Higher Diploma in Information Technology (Networking Stream, 2010-2013)
As a student of Higher Diploma in Information Technology from 2010 to 2013, I truly enjoyed the time in HKU SPACE CC. This programme not only provided me with fundamental knowledge and skills, but also motivated my progression in professional career development and helped me shaping the right direction toward study and work. I was not successful in HKALE but I didn’t start it over again the next year. Instead, I entered the foundation year of this IT programme. Being a post-secondary student without any relevant IT knowledge and experience, I was a bit worried about the road ahead in HKU SPACE CC at first. Fortunately, the curriculum came in from the ground up. I was on the right track of both academic study and practical training. Lectures and classmates were very kind and helpful, and I had the joy of learning something new, interesting and challenging. Having specialized in Networking study for two years, I learned the concrete switching and routing knowledge in addition to other soft skills. The Networking Stream covered the professional knowledge with the supplement of industrial practice, which provided us a good foundation to obtain industrial certification in the future. Moreover, I was honored to participate on the College’s behalf in the 8th and 9th Cisco Hong Kong–Macau Youth Networking Skills Competitions and was awarded the 1st runner-up. These valuable experiences were very useful for me in further study. Within these years, the IT courses enabled me to learn how to become an IT professional and get several valuable achievements: 2010-2011 • Principal’s Honours List 2010 - 2011 2011-2012 • Principal’s Honours List 2011 - 2012 • The 8th Cisco Hong Kong-Macau Youth Networking Skills Competition 2012 - 1st runner-up • HKSAR Self-financing Post-secondary Scholarship Scheme 2012 - Outstanding Performance Scholarship • “Cisco Certified Network Associate” Certificate 2012-2013 • Principal’s Honours List 2012 - 2013 • Academic Excellence Award • The 9th Cisco Hong Kong-Macau Youth Networking Skills Competition 2013 – 1st runner-up • HKSAR Self-financing Post-secondary Scholarship Scheme 2013 – Outstanding Performance Scholarship • Passed Cisco Certified Network Professional-route Exam Now, I am the student of UGC-funded degree programme at the City University of Hong Kong. Studying Computer Science, I find that the knowledge and experiences obtained from the Higher Diploma is really helpful. I appreciate the chance that allowed me to find my real interest in academics and having further study in university. I hope everyone would enjoy his or her school life at HKU SPACE CC.

Two years ago, I finished my HKDSE examination. Although the result displeased me, I hoped I could get into university one day. Therefore, I chose this programme because I knew would have a chance to study in higher education after this. I think this programme has helped me a lot in giving me a clear vision of where I am heading. Besides, I also improved my learning skills through studying different subjects. In addition, I made a lot of friends in this programme. I am enjoying this programme very much.
