Bachelor of Social Work

Studying within the BSW programme has helped me develop both intellectually and mentally. By joining the executive committee of Ying De Group, we as students have applied what we have learned to real-life activities. Our lives have influenced people's lives and vice versa. I believe the four year study contains precious moments in my life journey that I will treasure after graduation.

I was most impressed by the Problem-based Learning in which skills of searching for community resources were enhanced. I have learnt how to oversee the situation in a systematic and thorough way. The interactive learning among tutors and groupmates inspired me with new ideas. The BSW programme provided me with exposure to social work experts who in turn enhanced my understanding of society and clients’ needs.

The programme gave me a lot of opportunities to meet leaders from different appealing fields such as disabilities, express arts and various psychotherapies. During the three-year time, I also learnt more about self - recognising my strengths and became much confident to present myself. HKU BSW not only equipped me be a registered social worker, but also to be a passionate caring professional with progressive and critical thinking.
