Two Students Awarded HSBC Overseas Scholarships

previouspausenext

Miss Chik Nga-man Hermia (majoring in laws) and Mr. Wu Ho-fai Alexis (majoring in quantitative finance) have been awarded the HSBC Overseas Scholarships for a one-year study as a visiting student in the UK for the academic year 2012–13.

Hermia will study law courses at the University of Oxford and she is confident that Oxford’s one-on-one tutorial classes will enormously benefit her. She also believes that the experience of studying abroad will broaden her horizons and train her to be more independent. As an environmentally conscious person, Hermia wishes to work either as a lawyer for an environmental protection organization or as a legislative council member in the future to promote the development of enironmental law.

Alexis will study at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). He has been concerned over the problem of industrial and workforce diversification in Hong Kong. He has noticed that human resources have been overwhelmingly drawn to certain industries such as finance, trade and tourism, at the expense of growing industries like innovation and technology, art and culture, adversely affecting the city’s long-term development. Alexis believes that studying at LSE will give him a better understanding of government policy formulation and first-hand exposure to social structures in Europe, thus laying a solid foundation for his studies in this area.

The Hongkong Bank Foundation annually awards the HSBC Overseas Scholarships to CUHK students. Hermia and Alexis have been granted over HK$300,000 each.
