What is it about?

Major selection is one of the important study decisions that you make in your university education. Are you finding it difficult, or even stressful, to choose a suitable major? Do you know what to consider? In this highly interactive session, a panel of senior students with different academic backgrounds will share with you their stories — how they selected their major/minor, what they studied, and the challenges they faced in the programmes. The moderator and sharing students will take questions from the audience. At the end of the session, participants are expected to draw up a list of critical questions for consultation with the advisers from Home and non-Home Faculties, Careers & Placement and AAO at the Major-Minor Fair on the following day.
