On 12 April 2023, the Global Engagement Office (GEO) collaborated with APSS to host the PolyU Taster Programme 2023 for Secondary School Students at the PolyU Campus. The Joint Programme Leaders of the BA (Hons) Scheme in Applied Social Sciences, Dr Kong YAM and Dr Raymond TAM, presented the key features and curriculum structure of this undergraduate programme to 34 Secondary 4 and 5 students.
During the small group sharing session, members of the APSS Student Association shared their experiences of university life with the participants. Prof. Eric CHUI, Head of APSS, also welcomed the participants with a brief message before paying a visit to APSS CAVE cum Studio at Z Core.
Participants had the opportunity to explore the teaching facility in APSS's CAVE cum Studio. Not only did they get to see the state-of-the-art equipment in teaching and learning, but they also had the chance to use the facilities themselves. As part of the experience, the students were invited to join a video shooting session, providing the students with a unique glimpse into the world of video production and editing. Overall, this was an invaluable opportunity for participants to gain hands-on experience and to explore the exciting possibilities that await them in the field of applied social sciences.
