‘”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.

I learned to scrutinise information with a critical mindset, find evidence and facts to verify a story and present it with interesting narrative and hands-on multimedia production skills.

The knowledge I acquired at the JMSC has prepared me not only for journalism, but also for academia and many other fields.’

'I believe journalism, ultimately, is about human connections: how we all connect with each other as human beings playing different roles in a globalised society. I am grateful that the JMSC taught me how to find the human elements in everyday happenings and how to highlight emotions while covering social issues in an unbiased manner.'
