    More than 3,200 new students have been admitted into over 40 full-time undergraduate programmes offered by the OUHK this year.


     
    At the Inauguration Ceremony held today (28 August), The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) welcomed more than 3,200 freshmen who have been admitted into over 40 full-time undergraduate programmes offered by the University’s five Schools, namely the School of Arts and Social Sciences, Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration, School of Education and Languages, School of Nursing and Health Studies, and School of Science and Technology.

    Officiating at the ceremony, President of the OUHK Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong extended a warm welcome to all freshmen on behalf of the University. He shared his views with the new students on how to enjoy university years to the fullest while embracing different challenges. He emphasized the importance of “stepping out of comfort zones”, having a broader view of things and keeping abreast of international development and trends.

    Apart from focusing on their studies, Prof. Wong also encouraged students to proactively take part in extracurricular activities to broaden their knowledge and horizons. Throughout the years, OUHK has created an open and supportive environment for its students to enrich their learning experience. A wide range of activities and opportunities including internships, exchanges and competitions were organized for different objectives and interests. In 2017-18, OUHK students have paid nearly 1,400 visits to over 85 cities, and the University has arranged more than 2,600 internship opportunities for students in Hong Kong and abroad.

    In addition to developing a global perspective through overseas exchanges and study tours, Prof. Wong also spoke about the valuable opportunity and perfect timing to learn more about mainland China. “With Hong Kong returning to the motherland for more than 20 years, it is undoubted that the political, economic, academic, social and cultural ties between Hong Kong and mainland China have become more intimate than ever. While the Belt and Road Initiative and the Bay Area Development Plan have been receiving increasing attention and interests around the world, it is obvious that the plans would benefit the development of business, academic, innovation and technology industries in Hong Kong. Students are strongly recommended to grasp the opportunity and join the internship programmes or exchange activities in the Bay Area to get prepared for their future development,” Prof. Wong said.

    Understanding that some new students might feel anxious about entering university, Prof. Wong affirmed that the staff and teachers at OUHK would provide all the necessary support to help them sail through the new environment with ease. Last but not least, Prof. Wong encouraged all the new students to take full advantage of what is offered at the University, and make the best use of their time at OUHK while becoming proactive, autonomous and responsible learners. “The University will propel you to reach your full potential, achieve great success, and find true fulfillment in life.”
