Seek advice from Temporary Academic Adviser on Major Minor Decisions

 

 

Dear Students,

Seek advice from Temporary Academic Adviser on Major Minor Decisions

Can you imagine this semester is already half over? If you are a Year 1 student, you may be planning to declare major/ minor after the summer break; if you are in Year 2 or above, you may be reviewing your major/minor or possibly changing it in the next add/drop period. Whatever your plan is, find out more about your potential major/minor subjects from Our Temporary Academic Advisers (TAAs).

TAA

  • TAAs are teachers who can answer your questions about a particular subject in your major/minor exploration.
  • Currently there are about 100 TAAs from programmes that offer major/minor options.
  • Whether you are a home or non-home student of that Faculty, you can request to meet with a TAA for each subject any time on SIS under “Self-service”. Click for more information.

Remember, when assessing the suitability of a major/minor, there are many aspects that you may discuss with your TAA. Do you know what factors senior students considered in deciding their study choices? Take one minute to watch the video now: http://aao.hku.hk/video/video-17/

Feel free to contact us at 22194686/ aaoffice@hku.hk if you have any questions.

Scholarship Application and Interview

 

 

Dear Students,

Scholarship Application and Interview

Our “How to Prepare for a Successful Scholarship Application and Interview” workshop was held on March 21, 2017 (last Tuesday) with the participation of about 100 students across different Faculties.

Apart from the presentation of Ms Rachel Hong, Academic Adviser of our Office, on an overview of documents required for a scholarship application and tips for interviews and preparing different supporting materials, we were very pleased to have Ms Kitty Wong and Ms Henrietta Chan, Director and Senior Manager of the Scholarships Office respectively, to share with us many practical advice on how to search for scholarship opportunities and avoid some common mistakes made by past applicants. Two successful scholarship recipients, Ms Sum-In Tsang (Awardee of the DH Chen Foundation Scholarship) and Ms Sonia Yeung (Winner of the Innotech Award) were also there to share with participants their first hand experiences and what made them stand out in the competitive scholarship applications and interviews.

We understand that some of you were not able to join us last Tuesday evening. No worries. To help you grasp a general idea of the nature and process of scholarship application, we have compiled this 3-minute briefing: http://aao.hku.hk/3minscholarships/

Best of luck on your scholarship search and application!

Dear Student,

Please meet with Your Faculty Academic Adviser

Time flies! You are already half way through this semester. To ensure that you are aware of the academic choices available to you under the curriculum and that you are making good academic progress, the University requires all of you in Year 1 to meet with your Faculty Academic Advisers (FAAs) at least once EVERY semester.

As the Reading Week (March 6-11) is approaching, it is a good time to review your progress so far with your FAA. Please contact and meet with him / her at your earliest convenience. If you are not sure who your FAA is, please look at this video: http://aao.hku.hk/video/video-04/

Please contact us at 2219 4686 or email us at aaoffice@hku.hk should you have any query.

Please disregard this message if you have already met with your FAA in this semester.
