The MJ programme has something for everyone. It is also a great learning environment under established practitioners for a diverse club of young journalists from around the world. In particular, I was amazed by the level of empathy on display among the faculty at Elliot Hall. It’s a family.

'I believe that all you need is a lucky break to make it into journalism. However, luck only presents itself when one's preparation meets opportunity. The JMSC programme prepared me through practical classes such as broadcast writing, online journalism and documentary video production. But what makes this programme stand out from other journalism schools are the extensive networking opportunities that helped me land my big break.'

'"Think global"—the best phrase to summarise my three-year experience on the Bachelor of Journalism programme at the JMSC. Immersed in an environment with international cohorts and faculty members, offered the opportunity to take part in world-class exchange programmes, connected to a wide-range of local and international internships, I learned the essence of journalism with a wide exposure to the globalised world.'

'The JMSC allowed me to develop myself as a true all-round reporter. Video, photography, writing, social media: after completing the MJ I am confident in my abilities in all of them. This versatility is extremely appreciated and sought after in today’s media world. Learning journalism skills in Hong Kong also means real-life exposure to dealing with complex and sometimes politically sensitive subject matter—very useful if you want to work in any international capacity.'
