Student Message

Student Message


Studying at PolyU is a wonderful experience. I have acquired the knowledge and vision to realise my future career, thanks in part to the unlimited access to resources. Through studying Radiography, I hope to provide better medical care to the public by way of a more easily accessible body checking device. Thanks to the great mentors and platforms provided by PolyU, I have been granted the support and resources to design a portable body scanning device and connect with professional tech experts. I am so grateful that PolyU encourages its students not only to learn but also to apply their knowledge for the benefit of mankind.


MAN Yui Kuen, Jacky



The Department of Health Technology and Informatics imparts high-quality knowledge and practical skills, and offers a variety of placement opportunities for students to put theories into practice. The comprehensive training and encouragement from the teaching staff means that the students can work as student radiographers in public hospitals under the Hospital Authority as early as Year Two.

 

PolyU fuels its students to unleash their unlimited talents. This encouragement drove me to step out of my comfort zone and partake in an overseas Service-Learning programme to teach English in Cambodia in Year One. This was an unforgettable trip, which connected me with another part of the world and allowed me to fulfil the responsibility of a global citizen. PolyU is the perfect place to cultivate whole-person development, and I cannot wait to broaden my horizons and sharpen my competitive edge in my coming school years.
