Coming from a teaching background, my knowledge of the world was limited to a classroom, but the Master of Journalism programme at HKU exposed me to opportunities that I will never forget. I would have never imagined that within a short year, I would now be working my dream job in radio presenting and news reporting.

To me, HKU Journalism is not only a place which inspired my dream to become a reporter but it was also like a “second-home” where I was blessed with their support in pursuing this dream.

HKU Journalism taught me how to be a force for good in a professional way. As an emerging young journalist passionate about social justice and public service, journalistic professionalism is crucial to report compelling stories with strict ethics and integrity in the chaotic and controversial world.

From 2018 to 2021, I was a part-time Master of Journalism student and worked full-time for Google. While I was working in news and publishing for the private sector, I also wanted to gain editorial skills for the newsroom. I felt HKU offered the best option for me because of JMSC’s commitment to journalistic ethics and principles, the diverse and reputable faculty, and the chance to gain hands-on experience in a historically and politically significant city.

The master’s programme at HKU Journalism has been instrumental in my experience in starting out as an early-career journalist. As someone with very minimal experience in journalism before I started the programme, I was glad to be exposed to a broad range of skills which are increasingly important for reporters today – including video, digital, and data journalism.

JMSC gave me a happy and meaningful experience, where I met professional teachers and like-minded classmates, acquired valuable knowledge and made lifelong friends. I learnt practical silks in various storytelling methods and produced works which I may be proud of through my life time. China-related courses also deepened my understanding of contemporary China, preparing me a better mind to tell stories of this complex country. The MJ programme has trained me to be a versatile and competent journalist, I will always miss the time there.

HKU Journalism pushes you directly into the deep end in order to shape its students into the best journalists they can be. In the span of a year, we were taught all the skills we need to thrive as a journalist, whether that be to write, report, film or interview. Despite joined the program with no prior background in journalism, I now work as a reporter full-time and feel confident in my abilities as a journalist.
