  • 升讀香港大學理學士(運動及健康)課程一年級
課程涵蓋多方面知識,包括健康、體適能、運動學、器械健體指導、運動創傷預防及處理、營養學、指定運動計劃,內容翔實,讓我裝備充足,順利升學。我們在大學校園上課,有機會享用一流運動設施,例如在體育館 ﹑田徑場、足球場、籃球場、游泳池等進行操練。實習是課程的另一特點,我們可以選擇在大學、幼稚園、安老中心、體育中心等地工作,學以致用,難能可貴。我另曾入選嶺大欖球隊,參與渣打大專十五人欖球聯賽(USFHK)及其他錦標賽。隊友支持與團隊精神,使我畢生受益。最後,我特別感謝學院導師幫助我解決困難,也鼓勵我繼續升學。我也感謝學院頒贈傑出獎項,以示鼓勵。

  • 升讀嶺南大學社會科學(榮譽)學士課程三年級
完成體適能培訓及管理高級文憑課程後,我選擇在嶺南大學修讀社會學本科課程。高級文憑多元化課程內容,使我有機會銜接各個科目。至於選擇嶺南,則與我曾在嶺南進行實習有關。二百小時實習工作讓我接觸到大學裡不同的人,增強對嶺南的歸屬感。現在大學生活多姿多彩,尤其宿舍生活令我獲益良多。
