 APSS Entry ScholarshipMs ZENG Ke MAP 


(Master of Applied Psychology)

“I am a dedicated psychology student, set to graduate from Boston University. My academic journey has been complemented by internships at renowned institutions like the Shenzhen Kangning Hospital and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Additionally, I have devoted my time as a volunteer crisis counsellor, providing mental support to individuals in distress. My passion for psychology and my motivation to contribute meaningfully to this field have led me to choose PolyU’s Master of Applied Psychology programme in APSS to further my education.”

Ms Yan Tung Audrey TSE

(Master of Applied Psychology (Diverse Learning Needs))

“I completed my Bachelor of Science in Speech and Hearing Sciences at The University of Hong Kong in 2021, and I have been working as a school-based speech therapist since then. While providing services targeting the speech, language, and communication needs of students, I hope to acquire more knowledge and practical skills for working with individuals with diverse learning needs.”

Ms Chi Yan Lavender CHAN

(Master of Arts in Guidance and Counselling)

“I work in a counselling and training centre in Hong Kong where I conduct initial screenings for emotionally distressed clients and assist psychologists in providing mental health support services for schools, non-governmental organisations, and companies. In 2022, I graduated from HKU’s Master of Buddhist Counselling programme with Distinction. I chose to pursue a second master’s degree in PolyU’s APSS because of the programme’s highly intensive and closely supervised practicum, which is not commonly found in similar programmes. Given my strong passion to become a professional, empathetic, and skilled counsellor, I believe that I have made the right decision.

Mr Cham Kwan HUNG

(Master of Arts in Mental Health)

“In 2021, I completed my studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, majoring in Social Work. Currently, I am employed as a secondary school social worker. In my role, I frequently interact with students who experience mental health illnesses and emotional challenges. This experience has highlighted the significance of acquiring mental health knowledge and improving practical skills, which has motivated me to enrol in this programme.”

Ms Pui Ying Corina CHEUNG

(Master of Arts in School and Community Psychology)

“With my undergraduate studies and first master’s degree focusing on aspects related to Journalism and Communication, I worked as a brand and marketing practitioner after graduation. Psychology-related electives during my previous studies sparked my interest in further pursuing education in this field. The emphasis on “to learn and to apply” at PolyU resonates with me, and I believe that the courses offered in the Master of Arts in School and Community Psychology programme strike a useful balance between theory and application.”

Ms Xinyu YI

(Master of Arts in Social Policy and Social Development)

“I graduated from UIC with a degree in Social Work and Social Administration and received the 11th Lam Woo Distinguished Social Work Award. As I explored my options for further education, I found that the SPSD curriculum in PolyU’s APSS encompasses social development theories, policy analysis, and research methods. The programme also offers diverse activities and opportunities to apply for a Dual Degree Programme with the University of Washington. I firmly believe that this programme will enhance my professional knowledge, practical experience, and broaden my horizons. I am eager to apply for it.”

I am also a shareholder in an IT firm, creating mobile apps and systems to enhance the quality of our daily lives. Over the past decade, I have enjoyed volunteering and participating in community programmes.”
