An energetic and inspiring environment

“Hall life at PolyU has provided me with the opportunity to meet so many different people from various cultures and backgrounds. I love being in such an energetic environment and communicating with people my age.

During my university life, I've also had the privilege to take part in various extracurricular activities alongside my studies. In my second year, my friends and I helped form the South Asian society at PolyU to represent different cultures within the university better. This valuable experience taught me how to navigate different challenges and to constantly keep pushing to make things work.”

An inspiring education in design

As a design student, I've been trained to be sensitive and curious about my surroundings. The courses and support from PolyU’s School of Design (SD) have truly prepared me with the abilities needed to become an outstanding designer. 

I plan to specialise in user experience (UX) design when I graduate from PolyU. I'm glad that the courses at SD are so comprehensive and inspiring, with the professors nurturing students to be open-minded learners, which is crucial for the UX field. Besides this, studying at SD has also provided me with the necessary academic resources and precious connections in the industry to pursue a career focusing on UX.

Serving those in need for the betterment of society

“Participating in PolyU’s service-learning scheme provided me with invaluable experience in serving the community. It showed me the importance of empathy and thinking about others, and taught me how to be a decent team player and a caring leader. I was also able to collaborate with people from different countries, developing my ability to work with others internationally. I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to our society through this meaningful programme.

I believe that by teaching me expert knowledge in my chosen field of biomedical engineering, and by providing me with first-hand experience in serving our society, PolyU has prepared me well to succeed in the future.”
