Inauguration Ceremony for PolyU Student Ambassadors 2021-22

10 Sep 2021

Under the “PolyU Student Ambassador Scheme”, vibrant students are appointed as Student Ambassadors (SAs) to promote PolyU to secondary students and the general public through outreaching activities such as Info Day, admission talks, etc. This year, we are glad to announce that two energetic and enthusiastic COMP students are being appointed as PolyU SAs and the Inauguration Ceremony was held on 10 September 2021.

Prof. Wong Kwok-yin, Vice President (Education) of PolyU delivered the welcome speech and presented the Certificate of Appreciation to SAs of the previous year in recognition of their contributions, followed by the presentation of the official appointment to new SAs by Mr Edward Shen, Registrar of PolyU. Our student, Declan Leung Chun-hin (BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Information Systems, Year 4) was invited to give a delightful sharing on why he joined the scheme and his expectations.

Another student, Isabel Madeleine Kemp, (BSc (Hons) in Computing, Year 4) also shared with us how grateful she was being one of the ambassadors. “When I was still a secondary student, I remembered being perplexed and overwhelmed by selecting my major, wondering where my passion lay and what my dreams were. Just by reading information from the Internet, isn’t enough for the younger generation to grasp and understand what the discipline is,” Isabel said. “I want to take my sharing opportunity, to give secondary students my perspective on studying at PolyU and Computing.”

The scheme has been running by the Academic Registry consecutively for 20 years since 2001. To provide SAs with a better understanding of the strength of PolyU and the University’s admission arrangements as well as to further improve their communication and leadership skills, a series of training and briefings were offered to them. They will share their first-hand experience with prospective applicants and actively participate in various promotional activities. In return, they can strengthen their sense of belonging towards the University as well as enhance their communication, leadership presentation, and social skills. We sincerely hope that our SAs will be well equipped to perform their ambassadorial duties for the Department, Faculty and the University in the upcoming year.
