Chan Yuen San, Wilson
Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Applied Social Studies (2011)

Wilson Chan has a strong interest in both economics and politics. He enrolled in the OUHK after completing his Form 7 education. This year, he will graduate with a first-class honours social sciences degree in Applied Social Studies.

In the first year of his university studies, Wilson's only wish was to gain a degree. He gradually found university life very fruitful. The relatively small campus offered a close-knit atmosphere to facilitate a closer relationship between teachers and students. He always formed study groups with classmates and shared study tips and techniques. Apart from doing well academically, Wilson joined an internship programme with a political party, in which he helped organize activities for the community. Last summer, he also participated in the Auxiliary Undergraduate Scheme and is now an auxiliary police constable. Serving on the frontline, he has a few experiences in handling family disputes. He said he has improved his communication skills and developed a sense of justice through working as a police officer.

Wilson hasn't decided whether he would become an economic analyst or join the disciplinary forces ultimately. To better equip himself for the future, he will be pursuing further studies at the University of Warwick in the UK, where he will start a Master of Science in Economics and International Financial Economics programme in September 2011.
