My life of learning in TWC is fruitful and rewarding. Through lessons and practicums, I have acquired lots of knowledge and practical skills in gerontology and have enriched my understanding in the medical and social welfare policies of Hong Kong. My expression and organisation skills have improved a lot through doing homework and conducting research as well as giving out presentations.
In the summer of 2019, I participated in a study tour to Taiwan and was able to compare the differences in social welfare policies of Taiwan and Hong Kong. I found the Taiwan’s one rather robust and allowed the elderly to receive medical services within their local community. This might serve a good example to Hong Kong.
It is my pleasure to make lots of friends in TWC. Sharing the same goals, we learn and overcome difficulties together. They are the treasures I have found in TWC. I determine to devote myself to elderly services and make contribution to society.
I wish TWC a bright future ahead.
Peer Mentor (2019-2020)
Offering a number of professional programmes of various disciplines, TWC helps the younger generations, especially those who are interested in working in the medical sector, unleash their full potential in a pleasant learning atmosphere. With great enthusiasm, teachers are keen on answering our questions and play a supporting role on our side. The College attaches profound importance to all-round development of students. We are encouraged to join different kinds of activities to enjoy the school life and relieve our study pressure.
I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to TWC on its 10th Anniversary. My gratitude shall go to all academic and administrative staff for their teaching and support. I wish TWC a promising future and success on its mission to nurture talent to serve society.
I enjoy my study life in TWC very much. Teachers are passionate, giving out detailed explanations in classes and caring about us in many ways. My classmates are friendly - we support one another in both studies and life.
Studying Bachelor of Management (Hons) in Social and Business Sustainability (SBS) has deepened my understanding in the operations of business, non-profit and non-government organisations. I have now developed a clear view towards what makes a successful corporation.
I have a few unforgettable attempts in TWC. I once gave a speech on behalf of the new students in the Student Orientation Day 2019/2020 and went to RTHK to introduce the SBS programme. As a member of the Community Service Team and the Christian Society, I have learned how to work as a team and handle things independently. These are the crucial skills that I have developed for my future career.
I wish TWC could build on the past accomplishments to unveil a more successful chapter.
President of the 5th Tung Wah College Students’ Union Executive Committee
A decade has gone by so quickly that TWC is now celebrating its 10th Anniversary. As a young and vibrant institution, the College has established its footing in the tertiary education sector and has nurtured generations of talent for society. I truly believe that the College could reach far beyond the present in the coming years, as we are improving and growing from time to time. As a third-year student in TWC, the College has been a companion in my life and empowered me like a beacon.
My heartfelt congratulations to TWC on its 10th Anniversary!
Teachers of the Physiotherapy Programme are dedicated to teaching and I have learnt a lot in their theory and practice lessons over the past two years.
As the programme adopts small class teaching, it helps stimulate our learning initiatives and facilitate a pleasant learning atmosphere. I look forward to having my clinical practicum in a hospital during my third-year of studies. I believe that I could accumulate precious clinical experience and acquire useful skills on how to handle patients and design their therapy programmes.
While I enjoy spending time with the elderly, I also want to have a career that is related to sports. Therefore, I would like to specialise in geriatric and sports rehabilitation in the future and become a physio-yoga therapist.
Congratulations to TWC on the 10th Anniversary. I wish all members of TWC great spirit and good health.
Radiation Therapist in Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital
Teachers of the radiation therapy programme have rich teaching experience and are dedicated to nurturing every student. My time of study in TWC was tough with heavy school work, but it was rewarding and made me develop independent thinking and become more resilient. This helps my job as a radiation therapist a lot. The fondest memories of working hard with my classmates pull my heartstrings from time to time. I shall never forget.
Congratulations to TWC on its 10th Anniversary. I wish the College continuous success on its development and achieving the goal to become a private university – nurturing generations of talent for society.
Now doing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing
Studying in TWC makes me understand that hard work does pay off. Teachers in the School of Nursing devote all their hearts to nurturing us to become professionally trained nurses. They teach with great enthusiasm and take care of our learning needs. After receiving my Higher Diploma in Nursing in TWC, I am now doing a bachelor’s degree in nursing. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to TWC for the guidance and showing me the path to become a professional nurse.
Year 2020 is the 10th Anniversary of TWC. I believe teachers in TWC will continue nurturing students with all their hearts, and more talent with caring minds will be well-equipped to serve society. I also have full confidence that TWC will also have another brilliant ten years ahead.
Now a Clinical Psychology Registrar and PhD student in Psychology at University of Tasmania, Australia
My journey to pursue clinical psychology study originated in TWC - when I was doing a bachelor’s degree in applied psychology in 2012.
At that time, the programme was initially launched and the resources provided were rather limited, but my fellow classmates and I could felt the all-round support from the professors, lecturers and administrative sta. Classmates were friendly and we shared our dreams together. As a student athlete, I had to travel around the world to participate in special training and competitions. My classmates were kind enough to prepare notes and recorded lectures for me.
TWC flexibly dealt with my situation and enabled me to balance between studies and sports. Without the staunch support from TWC, I would never win the gold medal in the East Asian Games and graduated with first-class honours.
I am glad to know that my amazing college has turned 10 years old. I wish the College further success on its mission to provide quality education and nurture more talent for society.
I may be abroad, but my heart is always here. All the best, TWC!
Now working in Ernst & Young
I have learnt a lot of accounting knowledge in TWC and had a number of unforgettable attempts. For example I was given an internship opportunity at Inland Revenue Department in Year 3 and acquired much practical tax knowledge. In Year 4, I joined a study tour to the UK to broaden my global horizons.
I am now working in Ernst & Young, one of the “Big Four” international accounting firms and could make use of what I have learnt in TWC. I find my way of work influenced by my teachers, who constantly shared their work experience in lessons and inspired us what we should do after stepping into society.
I sincerely thank my teachers for their guidance. I also hope that the College would continue to nurture more talent to serve society with heart.
