    What do students say?

    Calven Wong has a BBA from a US community college and enrolled on Year 3 of the marketing degree programme last year. 'I would like to know more about marketing. OUHK degrees are widely recognized both locally and overseas. My study is now much more demanding but I have learned a lot, especially from the case studies and class presentations. Projects we did last semester included devising an advertising campaign for Starbucks and a marketing plan for LG mobile phones.'

    Corporate administration student Yuki Kwan was touched beyond words when she received a note of encouragement from a teacher at the end of a course. 'This is a teacher who really cares about students' well-being. I feel honoured to have been taught by him. OUHK students might not have excelled in public exams, but we are no less capable than our counterparts in other universities. Campus life is becoming increasingly interesting as we have more and more extra-curricular activities to choose from. I am glad to have studied here,' she said.

    Alva Mong had studied for one year in Scotland before starting her management studies at the OUHK in 2004. The results of her university entry exams came out in August, too late for her to apply to other local universities. 'OUHK students come from all sorts of backgrounds. Many are very hard working and I have made a lot of friends here. The teachers are also very helpful, giving us all kinds of support beyond the academic content,' she said. Alva is a scout leader and a reporter for the monthly newsletter of the Scout Association of Hong Kong.

    Raymond Lam finds what he learned at the OUHK about hospitality management very useful for his part-time work as a Club Assistant at Bel-Air on the Peak. 'I have a Higher Diploma in International Hospitality Management and a Diploma in Leisure Studies from the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education. At the OUHK we go beyond the operational aspects and see the industry from a macro perspective,' said the Year 3 freshman, who is a taekwondo coach and has certificates in first aid, sport climbing, fitness training and swimming pool management as well as a security personnel permit.

    Wilson Wu worked for one year after spending two years on the Hong Kong Polytechnic University's accounting degree programme. 'I was a science student when I studied Forms 4 to 7 in the UK and simply couldn't make myself like accounting. But it's a competitive world and I knew I must get a degree after hopping from one odd job to another,' he explained. He finds his banking and finance studies at the OUHK more pleasurable and plans to start postgraduate studies some time after graduation this year.

    Accounting student Joe Li joined the OUHK in 2003 after Form 7 and will graduate this year. 'The School has invited accounting firms to give us career talks and teachers have given us invaluable advice on job hunting to get us well prepared for the challenges ahead. I have met very good teachers here and enjoyed a fruitful campus life,' he said. Joe chairs the Football Club and is a mentor for Year 1 students.
