Miss Viola Wiegand
BA (Hons) in English Studies for the Professions
The Outstanding Student, Faculty of Humanities, 2012


Thanks to the welcoming attitude of the Department of English and the Faculty itself, I was able to join the BA programme of English Studies for the Professions as a full-time non-local student in 2010. Whereas I had to leave my home country Germany for my studies here, it has definitely been worthwhile.

Apart from gaining intercultural insights, my university life at PolyU has allowed me to develop my intellectual interests. Throughout my studies, the lecturers of this faculty have been very supportive and inspired me to conduct my own research for my Final Year Project and to apply for a postgraduate degree. I have also enjoyed the flexibility of the BA program, which allowed me to choose interesting electives and pursue a minor in Chinese as a Second Language. Moreover, I have had the chance to grab opportunities such as a community service teaching internship in Beijing and being the Vice President of a student association.
