Student Message


I am currently a Year Two student studying for a BSc(Hons) in Property Management. So far, I have acquired knowledge in areas such as property law, management, accounting and property valuation. I have also had many opportunities to develop my practical skills by engaging in several academic projects. BRE further offered me a chance to be a summer intern at Kai Shing Management Services, a property management company, where I gained valuable experience in managing both residential buildings and shopping malls. I have also participated in extracurricular activities such as being a Student Helper at BRE, an International Student Ambassador and a Peer Mentor, all of which have helped me become a responsible professional while paying attention to detail. I feel very fortunate to be studying at BRE, as it is giving me both theoretical and practical ways to acquire knowledge about property management.

During my four years studying at PolyU, I gained more than I ever expected. Through internships, hall life, the Service-Learning trip, club activities and exchanges, PolyU provides many opportunities for students to explore themselves. 

 

The exchange to the UK was a highlight for me. I had never been away from my hometown for such a long time. During my time abroad, I was exposed to a different culture and tasked with making a life in a foreign country. I found that I became more mature and was motivated to develop my problem-solving skills when faced with unforeseen situations on my own. It was an enriching and wonderful experience.

 

Living in halls has been a great way to immerse myself in PolyU life. The various events on campus and in halls put me into close contact with people from different faculties, different years and different backgrounds. Students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and enjoy all of the activities on offer.
