BSocScEd(GCS) Programme

Choosing BSocScEd (GCS) in HKIEd for my bachelor’s degree had proved to be a wise decision for me. Thanks to our kind and helpful Programme Leader Ms. Isabella Ng, it didn’t take me long to fit into the life in Hong Kong even though I am a non-local student. What’s more, the courses provided by the Programme are very comprehensive, giving me a chance to learn more about different disciplines of social sciences, such as political science, economics and sociology. After gaining an overall understanding of all these disciplines, I think it will be easier for me to choose one specific subject to study in depth for my master’s degree.
Apart from academic pursuits, I also took an active part in numerous extra-curriculum activities. During the Joint-U Mass Dance, I performed like a real dancer for the first time in my life after one and a half months of practice; I served as a volunteer tour guide in the Hong Kong Wetland Park; I visited an elder who lives alone; I attempted to establish a brand new Mandarin Performance Association with my friends…It was HKIEd that gave me a stage to discover my potentials. I feel so happy and grateful!
