HKBU Information Day attracts 28,000 visitors to experience energetic campus life

浸大入學資訊日吸引逾28,000人參加

More than 28,000 secondary school students and visitors joined the Information Day for Undergraduate Admission on 7 October. They gained the most up-to-date information on the University’s development and its undergraduate programmes and experienced HKBU’s unique campus life.

Featured events of the Information Day included a talk on “Navigate JUPAS admissions, explore HKBU programmes”, and two talks on Non-JUPAS admissions for sub-degree students and students with international qualifications. Visitors also met with HKBU scholars, students and alumni to learn more about individual programmes, admission requirements and career prospects at briefings and sharing sessions organised by various faculties and schools.

Professor Ricky Wong, Associate Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) cum Academic Registrar, said that from 2018-19 new concentrations will be offered in specific undergraduate programmes. For example, a new interdisciplinary “Data and Media Communication” concentration will be jointly offered by the Department of Journalism and the Department of Computer Science for year three students of both departments, with special emphasis on data analytics and journalistic principles and skills for media organisations as well as related industries. New concentrations in Financial Risk Management and Actuarial Statistics have also been added to the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics programme.

Professor Wong said there would also be changes in the arrangement of the JUPAS programmes. For example, the requirement for the elective subject of the Bachelor of Arts has been raised from level 2 to level 3; the requirement for elective subjects for the Bachelor of Business Administration have been elevated from one subject at level 2 to two subjects at level 3; the requirement for elective subjects for the Bachelor of Communication has been changed from one subject at level 3 to two subjects at level 3.

浸會大學於10月7日舉行「入學資訊日」,超過28,000人參加,他們深入瞭解浸大的課程特色和未來發展,並親身感受多姿多采的校園生活。

入學資訊日的重點活動包括專題講座「探索『大學聯招辦法』申請策略和浸大課程」,以及兩個分別為副學士及高級文憑學生和持國際學歷學生而設的非聯招入學講座。參加者透過由個別學院安排的課程簡介及座談會,與浸大教授、同學和校友面談,直接查詢課程的特色、入學要求及就業展望。浸大學生大使又帶領參加者參觀學生宿舍、教學設施和實驗室等,讓參加者體會浸大的「全人教育」特色和豐盛的校園生活。

協理副校長(教與學)暨教務長黃岳順教授表示,2018-19學年起,浸大部份課程有新的課程發展,例如計算機科學系和新聞系合辦新的「數據與媒體傳播」跨學科專修,供兩學系三年級學生修讀,結合數據分析和新聞學原則,配合數據新聞的發展。另外,數學與統計理學士課程亦增設了「精算統計學」及「金融風險管理」兩項專修。

黃教授說,浸大部份聯招課程亦將有新的入學申請安排,例如文學士的選修科要求由第二級提升為第三級;工商管理學士的選修科要求,由一科達第二級提升為兩科達第三級;而傳理學學士課程的選修科要求,亦由一科達第三級提升為兩科達第三級。
