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.

2008 - Josephine Wing-chee NgM.A in Historical Archaeology of the Modern World

Studying abroad has always been my dream, a fascinating yet distant prospect. Thanks to the Bristol University Hong Kong Convocation, I am now able to walk along the slightly crooked Woodland Road on my school days.

Heritage conservation is a pressing issue in Hong Kong that continues to take second place to the demands of the property developers and the needs of an ever growing population whose expectations of their living environment rise continuously. Historical Archaeology, a discipline concerned with the archaeology of the contemporary past, is one of the latest developments in the field. It provides a new perspective to help us think about the challenges we face in a modern society to understand the meaning and significance of the cultural landscape of our city – which forms the basis of any conservation plan. The Historical Archaeology course offered by Bristol University provides me with an intensive training in archaeological and analytical research skills, emphasizing the consideration of the material remains in a global context. What’s more, the department organises various fieldtrips in different parts of Britain, which provides us with on-site training and exposure to the possibilities of historical archaeology. These are invaluable experiences that I will most certainly make good use of in my future conservation research projects in Hong Kong.

Life as a Bristolian is full of new experiences. One of my most important “achievements” is to discover that I actually love cooking. I am living with flatmates from China, Italy, Jordan, Turkey and the UK, and we have lots of cultural exchanges in our big kitchen – in terms of cooking and so much more! I have had an unforgettable birthday in Bristol, where I had a big feast at home with all my new friends – with a basket of home-made Hong Kong egg tarts and a cup of Turkish coffee to read my future! Besides this, the kitchen window in my flat is the best spot for seeing the sunset, I even started a little photography project to record the Bristol sunset through this window!
