In each academic year, distinguished figures in different fields will be invited to share with our students their stories and secrets of success. In the previous years, students have been inspired by talks such as ‘A Matter of Life & Death’, ‘Life-long Earning’ and ‘Act on your Ambitions’ etc.
Stepping in a new learning environment, students might encounter different obstacles and be confused about what they should do next. GLEAM programme is a peer support network scheme exclusively for new students. It provides a platform for new students to connect, to obtain extra support from peers and advice from a group of Learning Enhancement Ambassadors (GLEAMs). GLEAMs will offer learning support and share personal and pragmatic University experience with new students via various online platforms. More…
