MSc Neuropsychology

It is said that the human brain is possibly the most complex structure in the universe. Our emotion, sense, perception, consciousness and intelligence all reside in this mysterious myriad of neuron connections. The mechanisms underlie human mental activities are without doubt fascinating. Thanks to the Bristol University Alumni Association Scholarship, I had a thrilling opportunity to get my way one step closer to the mystery in a vibrant, international and pleasant environment.

2012 - Fanny Fung Print E-mail

Fanny graduated from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong with a first class degree, majoring in Psychology and minoring in Sociology. She also found time to study Spanish and enjoyed travelling to different places as a student. Fanny is now embarking on a new adventure at Bristol University where she has joined the Master of Science in Public Policy programme. After her graduation from HKU Fanny became a full-time journalist specializing in Hong Kong politics. To quote Fanny herself ‘having observed so many of the day-to-day happenings on the frontline of the public arena, I am taking the opportunity of a year at Bristol University to step back and think more deeply about society, in particular what good governance should really be about. Alongside these academic pursuits I also look forward to widening my cultural horizons on this culturally diverse campus and taking the opportunity to travel in the UK and Europe’.

ps_2009MSc in International Development

There are times in life when you experience meaningful changes or positive turning points, be they big or small, and you come back a new person. I would say, a year abroad in Bristol has been a lifetime's defining experience for me.

Development is not merely an issue about the third world. The meaning attached varies across countries, and this is where exactly the issue is worth rethinking. There has been a long time debate on the definition and the model, if any, of development. By the time I was fortunate enough to be granted scholarship by the University of Bristol Convocation Hong Kong Branch, I had worked for several years as a news reporter and had eventually become more attracted to the twists and turns in politics, social and international affairs. I am proud of having made the decision of returning to academia and quested for a better understanding of the complexities in our rapidly changing world.

The time I spent in Bristol has been rewarding. I had an opportunity to learn from and with the brightest people I have ever known. A year without the demands of a job gave me the respite to explore and appreciate everything Bristol has to offer. I was making great friends from all around the world, diving into new cultures, taking stimulating seminars, exploring diverse knowledge and enjoying the weekend sunshine and cider as much as other Bristolians. What I miss most are the good times in England and the great opportunities to travel around Europe that studying in England allows me, which I shall say is a once-a-lifetime luxury.
