​讀書、海外及本地升學心得分享

[fmbbs必睇] 初到英國要做嘅幾件事

註冊GP GP即係General Practitioner,即係你之後有病就會去呢度睇醫生 (雖然呢度真係唔興傷風感冒就睇醫生)。正常嚟講你學校都應該有同你講去邊間診所到搞。我記得嗰時我去到診所之後填完啲個人資料之後,佢就會畀個樽畀我去驗尿,跟住就見一見姑娘,好快就搞掂。 習慣用contactless 香港普遍都係用現金為主,但係英國周圍都係收contactless。如果想再方便啲,所以好建議你地set up好Apple Pay/Samsung Pay/Google Pay。另外,contactless都可以用嚟搭車㗎! 買電話卡 大家買電話卡之前都不妨上一上呢個網都check吓你個地方嘅network coverage。除咗到咗英國先買,香港都有地方可以買到英國嘅電話卡。個人建議大家唔需要join plan,可以用pay as you go! 睇吓需唔需要申請student oyster card 如果你係喺倫敦讀大學嘅,可以考慮申請 18+ Student Oyster photocard。嗰陣時我就唔知頭唔知路申請咗,但係其實如果你唔係成日搭車嘅,我覺得冇呢個必要申請。因為佢唔似香港啲學生八達通咁,普通搭車就有優惠,佢係要你購買週票、月票同年票嘅時候先會畀7折你。所以我覺得如果你係住得唔近學校或者成日travel嘅就可以考慮吓申請。 網購日常生活用品 啱啱去到英國都應該好多嘢要買,而且有啲都好大件同重吓,所以可以選擇網購。

英國大學會遇到嘅5種人

今次講啲輕鬆啲嘅話題,同大家分享吓喺英國大學會遇到嘅5種人😆 諗諗吓其實呢幾類人好似都唔係淨係喺英國大學到搵到哈哈😂 唔知你又係邊種人呢?🤟🏻 吃喝玩樂型 疫情之前,好多同學都會成日落club同其他人social吓,有啲都會玩得幾癲吓添。有啲成日落club但讀書好叻嘅我係真心唔明佢哋點平衡到clubbing同讀書哈哈,真係時間管理大師! 佛系型 有啲人你feel到佢真係好chill,chill到一個點係已經唔太理自己嘅學業或者自己畢業之後嘅出路咁,有種得過且過嘅感覺! 深藏不露型 去到英國,你就會發覺呢個世界嘅勁人有好多,有啲人諗嘢嘅思維真係會令你大開眼界!但係唔係個個有料嘅都會周圍去show off,更多嘅係深藏不露,從佢喺seminars同lectures等等嘅發言可以feel到。 虛有其表型 有深藏不露嘅人,就一定會有虛有其表嘅人!我試過做group work,有一個組員明明平時嘅表現都正正常常,好識吹吓水,但做起嘢上嚟個就完全係兩回事! 學霸型 呢種人我覺得係佢本身已經有一個好明確嘅目標,知道自己喺無論學業上同埋career上想achieve到啲咩。而佢地本身嘅自我要求都好高,會把握唔同嘅機會去裝備好自己同埋去build一啲professional嘅connections咁!有時同呢種人相處我自己都學到好多嘢,可以互相交流吓~

讀地理點樣搵非地理嘅intern?| 過來人分享

我今年報同收到offer嘅internships所有都同地理冇咩關係,有law firm有FMCG firm等等。而我都知道大家喺揀geog呢科之前都會對出路有一定嘅憂慮,所以今次就同大家分享吓我少少嘅心得~ 大家自己斟酌選用啦! 我今年報同收到offer嘅internships所有都同地理冇咩關係,有law firm有fmcg firm等等。而我都知道大家喺揀geog呢科之前都會對出路有一定嘅憂慮,所以今次就同大家分享吓我少少嘅心得~ 大家自己斟酌選用啦! 前期準備 Job search 我主要用幾大平台,包括JobsDB, CTGoodJobs, LinkedIn同埋各大公司嘅官網。要注意嘅係唔一定所有公司都經其他平台做招聘,所以如果你對某間公司有興趣,我就建議你subscribe to佢嘅newsletter alerts先,等你第一時間知道有咩opportunities。另外,我知可能有啲人都會疑惑點解經啲平台報名好似冇回音,但係其實真係work㗎! 報intern嘅心態應該係採用漁翁撒網嘅方式,因為你永遠唔知道一間公司會唔會收你。另外,好多job description都會話自己prefer讀商科/相關科目嘅學生,但我自己嘅策略係會照報嘅,只要你有相關嘅skills同經驗就可以!That’s why我成日叫大家喺大學嘅時候要把握機會儲經驗,無論係上莊、參加case comp定係做義工等等都好,因為呢啲嘢你好難吹出嚟,反而係你有咗個經驗之後就可以再吹大啲。順帶一提,我覺得大家都應該開個LinkedIn profile整靚佢,build吓啲connections。 為咗加快報名嘅速度,我後來報嘅時候已經冇咩交cover letter (除非佢係compulsory啦),因為通常其實如果佢見到CV唔啱佢就可以bye bye啦。 面試 我覺得真係practice makes perfect,所以炒咗一次面試真係唔好放棄住!面試之前做research係必須的吧!首先,就係要了解多啲間公司本身先,最快捷嘅方法就係去佢官網到睇。可以睇吓annual reports同埋佢地social media上面最新嘅動向。之後,我自己通常就會上Glassdoor同埋各大討論區上面睇吓間公司通常會喺面試到問啲咩問題。 除咗呢啲之外,其實都幾肯定每間公司每次都會問你一啲behavioural 同competency-based questions同埋自我介紹,所以你都可以prep定先。另外,作為一個geog學生,我覺得你要expect咗面試官會問你點解你讀geog但係唔係想做geog相關嘅工作、點解自己係適合做呢個位同埋你之後嘅career path會係想點。 最後,如果你知道面試官嘅名,你可以上LinkedIn到睇睇佢個profile,然後嘗試喺面試嘅時候投其所好。 Notes of reassurance 報工嚟講,心理質素真係好重要!睇過我story嘅都知道我都灰過~ 但記住you’re not alone! 同埋其實geog嘅學生都有自己嘅優點同selling point嘅!要相信自己呀,加油!

英國大學物理治療巡禮- Keele, Nottingham Physio | 讀啲咩?出路?

多謝兩位有心人投稿😆 今次有Nottingham同Keele physio嘅分享!希望幫到大家了解到多啲唔同英國大學嘅課程🤟🏻 Keele B160 究竟讀啲咩? 全面發展,由基本醫人手法,背後嘅科學理論,到學習點樣去睇醫學論文,點樣判斷幾時用最好嘅治療方法等等。 同想像中有咩出入? 基本上冇咩出入,因為身為醫療人員要與時並進,所以學識如何睇醫學論文去學習最新嘅治療手法都好重要。 適合咩人讀? 基本上所有大學科目都係為咗準備你去進入社會工作而去學,所以如果你選擇你自己鍾意嘅科目去讀,你就會有動力去讀。相反,如果要讀一科你討厭嘅科目,你只會想盡辦法去逃避。不過,我認為讀物理治療嘅學生要識多角度思考、應變能力,而且需要自律。首先,因為同一個治療方法未必識合用於唔同嘅病人,所以如何去為病人計劃屬於佢嘅治療方案就要睇你如何變通。自律係因為物理治療有好多嘢背,而且老師都會expect你自己做research、自習,考試都有機會考啲上堂冇咩講但係叫你去自己睇嘅topic,所以如果你可以plan你自己嘅學習時間表,會有所幫助。 教學模式 Lectures | Practical lessons 基本上星期一二上lecture學theory,學唔同嘅病、病因同治療手法等等,星期四五practical會俾機會你去練習治療手法。 考核模式 Oral | Practical 考你病例嘅theory、點樣治療,practical exam會有同學做你model,要你表演治療手法。其他modules就寫文、presentation 等等。 Exchange? 呢到year 3 有exchange placements,先向學校報名,然後interview,因為名額有限。 成績/收生要求 英國物理治療基本上a level aab/abb, 正常會要求chem 或bio 期中一個要a, 不過這只是參考,請跟據uni website上寫嘅最新要求作準。 點解揀呢間大學? Keele 嘅賣點係比起其他大學讀3年bachelor畢業,佢係4年 integrated master畢業。placement hours 會比較多。不過因為要跟master 要求,所以yr 2,3,4係50%先合格。 Personal statement tips PS係一篇令對方知道你係一個咩人而寫,所以冇可能有標準答案。不過正常你會想sell自己嘅優點,點解讀物理治療etc。然後interview 記住要記得自己ps寫咗嘅野,因為interviewer一定睇過你嘅PS。如果你interview答唔出或答案同ps 有出入,佢就知你篇ps係亂寫。 出路 英國物理治療畢業基本上香港學生一係留返英國做,一係返香港做,睇你自己preference。 Nottingham B160 究竟讀啲咩? 讀嘅嘢包括anatomy (解剖學), pathology (病理), muscular disease and disorder, professional and personal development同research methods等等。 要有咩心理準備? Workload比較大,同埋有時都需要學啲唔係超級關事嘅嘢,例如research methods。 教學模式 都係以lectures同tutorial為主。 考核模式 大部分都係口試,冇咩筆試。 收生/成績要求 A level AAB 要經過interview先知入唔入到,7個人得4個人入到。 點解揀呢間大學? Nottingham呢科嘅排名都幾好,喺全英國排第二。 出路 通常讀得呢科畢業之後都會做番物理治療師。

HKU讀考古知多啲! | APSAP | 港大考古課程、考古出路

係一直好多人request有關考古學嘅post呀😆 好開心今次可以同港大嘅考古團隊 @apsap.armenia 合作,為大家分享吓有關呢個project、HKU考古課程同埋考古in general嘅一啲有用資訊畀大家🔥 以下係佢哋少少嘅自我介紹: 我地係香港大學一個新嘅考古團隊 (包括教授同學生),歡迎各位加入我地成為下一批學生,或者以義工方式加入。我地嘅研究方向比較廣闊,焦點主要係古代亞洲幾個地點,由西南亞(即古代近東/ 米索不達美亞) 到東南亞 (寮國, 泰國) 到東亞地區。暑假嘅時候,我地會喺南高加索地區(亞洲西南方向)進行考古發掘,而且我地都喺香港大學開展咗幾個新嘅考古course。呢個post有我地幾位隊員分別解答咗各位嘅問題,歡迎再同我地了解更多㗎,我地好樂意認識新嘅朋友仔! 考古學係啲咩?同歷史學/人類學有咩分別? What is Archaeology? What’s the difference between Archaeology and History/ Anthropology? Archaeology studies the human past through physical evidence, namely, material culture, to better understand the life, environment, social activities and ideologies of groups of people who lived long before us. In other words, archaeologists study the things people used in the past and then left behind - pottery bowls, the bones leftover from meals, ruined buildings, metal tools, etc - to understand what their lives were like. On the other hand, history uses written texts to study the past. Anthropology studies human beings from many different perspectives such as behavior, biology, culture and society - in the past and the present. 考古學係通過分析實物遺存嚟研究過去人類嘅生活、所處環境、社會活動仲有意識形態。而歷史學針對歷史文獻的研究嚟了解人類嘅過去。簡單而言,考古學家會研究古代人類使用嘅物品,例如陶碗、飲食留下嘅骨頭、荒廢嘅建築物、金屬工具等,目的為研究佢地嘅生活習慣。人類學既研究人類過去,亦研究人類現在,主要包括人類行為、人類生物學、文化同社會。 考古嘅工作流程通常係點? What is the normal workflow of archaeology? Archaeology starts with regional research and landscape survey to determine potential sites for excavation and understand human interaction with the environment. During excavation, we carefully record and analyze everything we remove. During and after fieldwork, we will publish preliminary reports to share information with other archaeologists and the public. After we spend time on our analyses, we will write more detailed research papers so we can inform the world about our interpretations of the past. An archaeological project must also include public outreach and stewardship of the places we study. 考古嘅流程以區域研究為開始,而後進行地表調查,考古發掘,在發掘嘅同時對出土信息進行記錄同分析。喺發掘完成後,發掘者發表初期考古報告,其他考古學家會發表跟進研究。後續嘅工作係基於考古成果撰寫完整報告,並向大眾傳遞呢啲有關過去嘅資訊。而且每個考古項目都需要進行公眾宣傳同管理嘅工作。 HKU有啲咩考古嘅課程讀? What archaeology courses are provided in HKU? Can you introduce and explain the courses 1 by 1? HKU好多比較新嘅考古課程,包括 CCHU9080 Dead People’s Things: Excavating the Past with Archaeology, FINE2102 The Connecting Sea: an Introduction to East Mediterranean Archaeology, FINE2108 Emerging Societies: an Introduction to Mesopotamian Archaeology, 同 BBED6796 Cultural Heritage and Information in the field。另外亦都有一個 ancient history course係同考古有關嘅: HIST2136 The Graeco-Roman World: From Homer to Augustus. In all these courses, students will study introductory archaeological concepts, methods, and theories. They will learn how to investigate the human past through the materials people left behind. These classes also teach about digital humanities methods that can be used to study the past, from 3d reconstructions of ancient buildings, to comparative databases of pottery. CCHU9080 Dead People’s Things is a broad foundational course that introduces all aspects of archaeological thought and practice. As part of HKU’s Common Core, we invite students from all disciplinary backgrounds to join us for this initial exploration into the importance of things in the human past. FINE2102 The Connecting Sea introduces the cultures, sites, and objects of peoples who inhabited the eastern Mediterranean Sea - including the ancient peoples who lived in the region stretching from Greece and Turkey to Palestine. These peoples were all in contact with each other over thousands of years and thus we can trace the ways they shared ideas and objects. This course covers the time period from roughly 2000 to 1 BCE. FINE2108 Emerging Societies introduces a region with the earliest development of complex society in the entire world. Centered on what is now Iraq, Mesopotamia (the land between the Tigris and Euphrates river), saw the earliest agriculture, cities, writing, and states. In this class we will study the time period from about 4000 to 300 BCE in the areas spanning Turkey to the South Caucasus to Iran. BBED6796 Cultural Heritage and Information in the Field is a very special course among all university classes in Hong Kong. In this course, students travel to the south Caucasus in southwest Asia, to the country of Armenia, to participate in an actual archaeological excavation project! Students learn how to survey the landscape looking for pottery and other evidence of the past, they also learn how to carefully dig into an ancient site and record everything they find, and finally they gain exposure to advanced digital humanities technologies such as drones and 3d modeling. All of this while living in a beautiful landscape and learning about the wonderful Armenian culture while making friends from all over the world. Finally, HIST2136 introduces the famous ancient texts and culture of Greece and Rome during the 1st millenium BCE. HKU啲考古course係咪會有field trips?會做啲咩? Are there field trips in the HKU Archaeology courses? What do they do? Yes, there are field trips in the HKU Archaeology courses. For example, this year the course BBED6796 was unable to travel to Armenia but instead conducted six field trips in Hong Kong. We went to the HKU Libraries Preservation and Conservation Division, Ma Wan, Sha Lo Tung, Wun Yiu, Sheung Yiu, and Lamma Island. In a normal year, students will travel to Armenia to actually learn how to do archaeological survey and excavation, and to work with the objects we find. 香港大學嘅考古課程有提供田野考察。例如本學年嘅BBED6796原計劃到亞美尼亞的Vedi Fortress— 呢個喺2019年由港大亞拉臘平原東南考古項目發現同發掘的遺址進行田野考察。但由於疫情關係,今年課程就安排咗喺香港進行六次田野考察,到訪香港大學圖書館文獻保護與修復中心,馬灣、沙螺洞、碗窰、上窰和南丫島。正常情況下,學生都會去到亞美尼亞,學習同進行考古勘測、發掘同研究所發掘嘅文物。 點樣先可以參與到APSAP嗰個考古project?係咪一定要major人類學先可以參加? How can you join the APSAP archaeology Project? Is a major in anthropology necessary? APSAP welcomes participants from all academic and professional backgrounds. We believe everyone who’s interested in the study of the human past can contribute to and learn from the project. In the past, we had students from a wide range of backgrounds including history, architecture, conservation, biology, computer science etc. Any HKU student can sign up for any of the archaeology courses offered and volunteers can find other ways to participate. In each field season we plan to take students and volunteers to participate in the ongoing archaeological fieldwork in Armenia. Our day to day work includes excavation, landscape survey, drone photography, documenting finds etc. There are also options to be involved in the project remotely by working on our various digital projects. APSAP focuses on integrating emerging information technologies into archaeological research, and particularly welcomes the participants with interests and backgrounds in computer science and engineering. APSAP歡迎嚟自各種學術同職業背景嘅人士參與。所有對人類歷史同考古研究感興趣嘅參與者都有機會對我們嘅研究作出貢獻同得到收獲。往屆學生嚟自唔同嘅學術背景,包括歷史學,教育學,園林景觀,建築保育,計算機科學等等。任何港大學生都可以報讀港大嘅考古課程,而volunteers亦都可以透過其他方式參與。每年暑期,我們都會組織學生同志願者去亞美尼亞參加一線田野考古實務。日常工作包含發掘、地面勘測、航拍攝影、整理記錄出土文物等。同時,遠程參與嘅人士都有機會通過我們嘅數位項目參與考古學研究。APSAP特別重視喺考古中應用新興嘅資訊科學和計算機技術,尤其需要同歡迎擁有計算機科學及工程興趣同專長嘅人士參與。 APSAP個考古project大概係關於啲咩? What is the APSAP project about? The Ararat Plain Southeast Archaeological Project (APSAP) is an archaeological research project led by researchers at Hong Kong in collaboration with colleagues from the Armenian Institute for Archaeology and Ethnography. We conduct archaeological fieldwork in the Vedi River Valley in the southern Ararat Plain, which was an important crossroads between transit routes that connect vast geographies. We aim to utilize various archaeological methods such as surface surveys, architectural documentation, and excavation to illuminate the everyday life of a region, and better understand the changing dynamics of mobility, infrastructure, trade, and political control through history. For more information, please visit us online: http://www.openarchaeology.org/armenia 亞拉臘平原東南考古項目 (APSAP)係港大考古學家同亞美尼亞研究人員合作嘅考古學項目。研究地點位於亞美尼亞亞拉臘平原東南面嘅 Vedi 河谷。Vedi 河谷係歷史上重要嘅交通走廊,連接周圍多個主要人口同政治中心。研究團隊希望通過田野發掘、系統性勘探等考古學方法,更好咁理解呢一個地區古代先民嘅日常生業、政治組織、商業交往、人口流動,從歷史變遷嘅角度更深入地理解古人嘅生活。請參閱以下網址查看更多資訊:http://www.openarchaeology.org/armenia 如果對考古有興趣嘅,有冇啲咩入門書籍/影片推介? Any recommendations on Introductory books/ movies on archaeology? 如果對考古有興趣,建議可以睇由T. Douglas Price同Kelly Knudson寫嘅呢本textbook- “Principles of Archaeology”。睇完呢本書之後你會了解到點解考古學係咩一回事同埋考古學對於理解古代生活嘅重要性。書入面都有介紹到唔同嘅archaeological methodologies同practices。 如果你想知道多啲關於ancient southwest Asia (Mesopotamia), 你可以睇吓例如Michael Roaf嘅Cultural Atlas of Mesopotamia and the Ancient Near East。如果係對southern Caucasus有興趣嘅,你可以去睇吓Anthony Sagona’s Archaeology of the Caucasus: From Earliest Settlements to the Iron Age。 睇完相關讀本之後,建立有關遺址同文物的深入知識都很重要。你可以選擇你感興趣的特定範疇再加深了解。例如按照地域、文化、城市或文物類型。無論係文章或書籍,閱讀有關你感興趣的範疇,都有助於鞏固你的知識並培養您對該領域進一步研究嘅興趣。 If you are interested in archaeology, you may learn more about it by reading the textbook “Principles of Archaeology” written by T. Douglas Price and Kelly Knudson. This book is available online for HKU library users. Through the reading, you will learn what archaeology is and why it is important to have archaeology in order to understand life in the past. And it will introduce the different archaeological methodologies and practices used while studying the site and objects. To learn more about ancient southwest Asia (Mesopotamia), you might look at a book like Michael Roaf’s Cultural Atlas of Mesopotamia and the Ancient Near East (available for free online), and for the southern Caucasus, one could look at Anthony Sagona’s Archaeology of the Caucasus: From Earliest Settlements to the Iron Age (available to HKU library users online). After that, building knowledge about the sites and objects is also important. You can choose a specific field that you are interested in. For example, a region, culture, city or object type. Reading books and articles about the materials, culture and properties related to the site or object type you are interested in can help to solidify your knowledge and develop your interest in further study in that field. 看過相關讀本之後,建立有關遺址和文物的深入知識也很重要。你可以選擇你感興趣的特定範疇再加深了解。例如按照地域、文化、城市或文物類型。無論是文章或書籍,閱讀有關你感興趣的範疇,均有助於鞏固你的知識並培養您對該領域進一步研究的興趣。 讀考古嘅話喺香港嚟講其實有啲咩出路? Future of Studying archaeology in Hong Kong? (i.e. future careers in HK) Related jobs for the one who studies Archaeology include studying and managing archaeological sites and artefacts. They may work as researchers and lecturers in the universities and study the sites and the objects found during excavation. Since archaeological excavation may not be limited to the Hong Kong local area, archaeologists may remain in Hong Kong during the semester and leave for the archaeological fieldwork during the excavation season. After excavating objects, the objects will be recorded and studied to understand their history. Other options are the posts in AMO (Antiquities and Monuments), and public or private museum curators and conservators who will manage, preserve and display artefacts. Some places will also hire archaeologists before developing the land to ensure the place does not have any valuable archaeological sites, we call this cultural resource management (CRM). 考古學嘅學者完成學業後大部分會係進行研究同管理遺址、文物嘅工作。 例如喺大學入面做研究員同講師,並對某啲遺址同文物進行研究。除咗香港,世界各地唔同國家都正進行考古發掘,所以考古學家們一般喺學期中會留喺香港,並喺考古季度時離港到海外遺址工作。發掘完成後,就會進行紀錄同歷史研究。 除此之外,工作職位也包括古物及古跡辦事處(AMO)、公營或私營博物館的館長、文物修復師等,以進行管理、保育及修復文物同策展嘅工作。喺一啲地區,政府都會聘請考古學家喺發展地方前進行探測以確保該區域下冇遺址,我們一般稱作文化資源管理(CRM)。

又要多謝有心人投稿🤩❤️ 適逢而家係UCAS Clearing嘅時候,大家睇呢個post就啱晒喇,因為入面有經Clearing入Warwick嘅流程同心得🌟 課程特點 涵蓋嘅嘢很廣,每樣都會學一啲咁,除咗學language、culture and communication,都有學marketing同business方面嘅知識,所以唔會好似其他科咁咁專注喺一個area到。咁樣就有好有唔好嘅,雖然可以涉獵多啲範疇,但係我地每個module都唔算讀得好深入,所以只可以話係每樣都識啲咁。 Language嘅話,我地Year 1嘅時候需要學一種新嘅語言,當中都有好多唔同選擇,而我自己就揀咗日文。Culture就會學吓culture communication同culture relationship等等。Modules嚟講,其實Year 1冇咩得揀,但Year 2之後個自由度就大啲,可以揀自己鐘意嘅嘢嚟讀!而可以選擇嘅modules都好廣泛,我就主要揀咗啲business modules,而我啲朋友就揀咗啲社會學、心理學同哲學嘅modules。 呢個都算係一個好新嘅course,而且每個cohort嘅人並唔多。好似我咁,我嗰屆就得12個人。不過,我地有時上堂都會同其他科嘅人一齊上,所以都唔會話係得10幾個人一齊上堂。但因為我地個course比較少人,我就一定要喺course以外都同其他人socialise吓,例如係透過我第一年住campus嘅hall識人咁,然後第二年再搬岀嚟一齊租屋住。 呢個course都係可以選擇要一年嘅exchange/placement,如果要呢啲嘅話就要讀4年。Exchange方面我地學校有同好多世界各地唔同嘅學校合作,美國、歐洲、亞洲(香港、大陸、台灣、日本、韓國)嘅都有,但以我所知就好似唔可以返去自己嘅國家到exchange嘅。 點解揀Warwick? 我本身係想揀UCL嘅,但因為分數上嘅問題,我最後經Clearing入咗Warwick。我本身係冇打算揀Warwick,因為我唔係好鍾意佢嘅位置同city,但讀咗兩年之後都覺得Warwick呢到都冇咩唔好嘅。Warwick俾人嘅感覺就係附近咩都冇,唔似其他大學係喺city centre咁,變相咁樣就可以令你更專注喺你嘅大學生活到。如果想social嘅,都通常會喺大學到,而且呢到每個禮拜三都會有pub或者都可以參加一啲societies嘅酒聚。 另外,Warwick嘅ranking都唔差,好多公司都幾鍾意Warwick畢業嘅人,所以就業率係比較高嘅。 經Clearing入Warwick嘅程序 首先打電話俾間學校問吓佢會唔會俾offer你,然後有個staff就話我個分數可以報到Warwick呢個course,但係要再問個course leader我可唔可以讀咁,可能係因為佢想睇吓你嘅background/experience符唔符合呢個course。所以最後尾我需要同個course leader嚟一個大約30分鐘嘅interview。Interview會問你咩嘢係communication、你之前中學讀嘅科點樣support你去讀呢個course等等。經過呢個interview之後佢地先正式出offer俾我。我覺得因為我係經clearing入,所以都係主要睇我嘅grade,而唔係我份personal statement。 考核模式 主要寫essay同埋考試。通常啲modules都係50% exam同50% essay,而essays都比較難拎到高分。 成績要求 DSE (如果你係讀3X): 英文、數學、LS:3|選修科:555 DSE (如果你係讀2X): 2個必修科 (中文唔計):55 |其餘必修科(中文唔計):3|選修科:55 IELTS (academic): Overall 6.5, 每個subset至少有6.0 出路 感覺上呢科嘅學生就係咩都識啲,所以唔同類型嘅工都可以報到,尤其是同culture side有關嘅工都可以。我啲同學都係會做番media同marketing相關嘅嘢。

英國升學心得- Southampton Computer Science G400 | 究竟讀啲咩?出路如何?

多謝有心人投稿🤩🤩 終於有computer science嘅分享!我記得你地之前都有人request過話想睇嘅😆 讀啲咩? 呢個課程係accredited by British Computer Society (BCS) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) 嘅。主要係讀programming同數學+ theory。次要就有hardware, systems, database同security。再次要有law, management同ethics... 課程結構 一年兩個學期,一個學期讀4科,每科15 cred (120 cred 一年)。 第一年要全pass,同埋冇得揀科。Fail咗嘅話就要retake嗰科,retake都衰就要重讀Year 1。 第二年有2/3科自選,唔一定要pass哂可以拉cred,但係唔可以炒多過2科 (起碼要90 cred)。 第三年固定FYP同埋自選。FYP當3科(Term 1 當一科,Term2當2科,前後三科45 cred)。 三年佔分比例係0:1:2。 適合咩人讀? 鐘意programming/hacking/解難嘅人 需要具備咩skills? (1)基本programming(Java)。第一年可以食中學老本,但係之後飛得幾快吓 (2)數,最好有讀further maths (3)英文,因為唔識聽/聽唔切會好辛苦 (4)一路聽一路寫notes嘅能力 教學模式 大部分都係lecture。一星期會有一兩日去Lab落手落腳做,會有assistant幫你,問問題最啱。 考核模式 數/Theory:Test/Exam Programming/Group Project:Coursework FYP:寫文(+寫Program) 收生/成績要求 DSE: 官網冇寫明,要自行向校方查詢 IELTS (academic): Overall 6.5, 每個subset至少有5.5 點解揀呢間大學? 排名算高(通常10名左右),但要求唔太高,所以做safe choice好啱。我唔唔清楚呢間大學同其他嘅分別,不過真係要比較嘅話呢間就好似冇咁chur。 Personal Statement Tips 寫多啲自己點係課堂外學其他野同埋顯示出自己鐘意problem solving。 出路 最直接就係做IT狗~ 或者可以做programmer (back-end),包括web development/server/database/system analyst。

英國升學心得- 英國大學心理學Psycho巡禮 | 一文睇晒Exeter, Surrey, LSE, UCL嘅資訊!

多謝投稿分享Exeter同Surrey psycho嘅朋友仔❤️ 我見之前都有人喺我呢到分享過LSE同UCL psycho,所以就順便擺埋一齊喺到俾大家睇😆 希望幫到大家! Exeter Psychology C802 適合咩人讀?要有咩心理準備? 首先,一定要對心理學呢科有興趣先學。如果唔係嘅話好難堅持落去/讀到最尾連自己要往邊一個方向發展都唔知。 第二就係要做好有大量數據要處理嘅心理準備。如果數學成績唔係幾好/計數能力比較差嘅話,揀讀心理學year 1 一定要俾心機學statistics(fail咗就會畀學校要求轉major或者係transfer去另一間大學)。 教學模式 Lectures | Tutorials | Practicals (except statistics)。同埋今年因為係online上堂所以每個module都多咗Q&A session。 考核模式 絕大多數module 都係50% assignment,50% final exam (平時冇class quizzes)。 Research Method 呢個module會有10%嘅research participation,即係要我地填啲問卷interview之類(好易攞分嘅完全唔使擔心)。 Statistics:Sem 1 final exam 67%, Sem 2 final exam 33% (無論點都要pass呢科!!!!) 點解揀呢間大學? 唔同大學心理學專業課程focus嘅方向都有少少區別。揀中Exeter最大嘅原因就係Exeter psychology course多樣化,唔係好似有啲大學focus on brain science/language & development (如果鍾意clinical psychology嘅同學可以apply MSci Applied Clinical psychology,不過requirement會高啲)。 第二個原因就係學校專業排名唔差,又有higher嘅graduate prospects。 成績要求 DSE: 選修科:555 (包括一個science subject) IELTS (academic): Overall 6.5, 每個subset至少有6.0 (但6.5入讀psycho其實會有少少壓力,之後要多嘥時間練吓英文) Personal statement tips 可以寫幾句說話介紹自己有咩興趣愛好,呢啲愛好對於你未來學習生活有咩幫助。同埋仲可以用一小段話講下自己點解選擇去英國讀書 (呢啲係加分points 唔好寫太多字,100字左右最好)。 出路 如果將來想做psychological therapist/researcher嘅話,undergraduate之後至少要讀埋master。Undergraduate之後可以去參加相關NHS training積累經驗。 Exeter university有一個專門培訓professional clinical psychologist/therapist嘅department。 University of Surrey Psychology C801 究竟讀啲咩? Surrey嘅psycho涵蓋咗psycho嘅唔同範疇,包括biological, human development, personality theory同disorders等等。 要有咩心理準備? 如果你係真係好想讀psycho,要有心理準備 1/4 嘅psycho課程會係關statistics事。 點解揀呢間大學? 主要因為佢比較近London。 教學模式 Lectures | Laboratory-based practicals | Seminars | Tutorials | Workshops 考核模式 Essays, exams (year 1以MC為主,而year 2就以essay為主), research reports, posters and presentations. 成績要求 DSE: 444 (包2個electives) IELTS (academic): Overall 6.5, writing至少要有5.5, 其他subset至少要有5.5 (但6.5入讀psycho其實會有少少壓力,之後要多嘥時間練吓英文) Personal statement tips 都係show番你對呢科嘅熱誠同埋點解揀呢科而唔係其他科。 出路 除咗以上提到嘅psychological therapist/researcher,有部分人都會做human resources同marketing。 LSE Psychology C800 LSE psycho之前都同大家介紹過,所以喺到只會簡單咁同大家recap吓相關嘅資訊。 簡介 成個programme同approach都比較新。同其他大學嘅心理學嘅分別我覺得主要有兩個。一係我地會讀比較新嘅behavioural science,雖然比例上都係psychology多啲。二係所有PBS courses我地都會focus多啲係社會層面嘅應用,例如public policymaking咁。比起傳統心理學通常則重點係個人層面多啲,例如人有唔同嘅心理病等。 成績要求 DSE: 英文、數學: 4 | 中文、LS: 3 | 選修科: 5*55 IELTS (academic): Overall 7.0, 每個subtest至少有7.0 出路 如果你對behavioural science有興趣,可以諗做consultant。如果鍾意呢科但由想從商嘅,可以選擇讀我地department嘅masters,例如organisational psychology都好出名再而做相關嗰行。 UCL Psycho (UCL Psycho with Education: C801) (UCL Psycho: C800) UCL psycho之前都同大家介紹過,簡單咁同大家recap吓相關嘅資訊 簡介 UCL嘅psycho比較傳統啲,因為佢會讀多啲individual level嘅應用,例如係clinical/ educational psychology。如果你係讀UCL Psychology with Education呢個degree嘅話,第三年就會學好多應用方面嘅嘢,例如運用一啲theories或者研究結果去諗吓有啲咩interventions可以inform policymakers同學校。另外,UCL都有offer BSc Psychology and Language Sciences呢個degree,而呢個course都唔係好多大學有。 成績要求 [Psychology BSc] DSE: 英文、數學: 5 | 中文、LS: 3 | 選修科: 5*55 [Psychology with Education] DSE: 英文、數學: 5 | 中文、LS: 3 | 選修科: 5*55 IELTS (academic): Overall 7.0, 每個subtest至少有6.5

CUHK Earth System Science 中大地球系統科學 JS4633/ JS4601 FAQs | 兩個stream分別讀咩?好需要數理底子?

千呼萬喚嘅CUHK Earth System Science分享終於出爐啦🔥 喺到要多謝番 @jommmmii_hokkaido 咁詳細嘅分享🥺💖 希望個post解答到大家嘅疑問啦💡 下次會講埋啲出路,敬請期待😆 課程內容 問:ESSC係乜野嚟? 答:地球系統科學 Earth System Science 顧名思義係將地球以一個系統咁去睇,包括大氣圈(atmosphere)、水圈(hydrosphere)、冰雪圈(cryosphere)、岩石圈(geosphere)同生物圈(biosphere)等系統(spheres/subsystems)之間嘅interactions同feedbacks。地球系統科學係一門橫跨例如氣象學(meteorology)、海洋學(oceanography)、地質學(geology)等傳統學科嘅新課程,而中大ESSC嘅課程理念係希望可以培育到同學具備對基本理學(phy chem bio)嘅基礎、包含computation同statistics嘅quantitative skills,同對地球系統嘅知識。 中大ESSC仲有分兩個stream,大氣科學atmospheric science同地球物理geophysics。Atmospheric science主要focus係atmosphere、hydrosphere同biosphere嘅動力學同化學,例如有大氣動力學、大氣化學、海洋學、氣候學等等;geophysics主要透過重力gravity、電磁力electromagnetic同地震波seismic methods去研究地球,例如有岩石學、地震學、地貌學、地質學、火山地質學、水文地質學(都同hydrosphere有關!)等等。 另外我地ESSC嘅major requirements裡面好好plan過的話係可以直接順便minor埋physics,亦有啲同學會minor其他science科例如stat。依家好似仲有double major ESSC+physics嘅選項,有老師可以安排到一份final year project fulfill曬兩邊嘅畢業要求。 有興趣可以參考中大ESSC主頁嘅introduction,有更詳盡嘅介紹: https://www.cuhk.edu.hk/sci/essc/intro.html 問:兩個stream分別會讀啲咩? 答:兩個stream分別有自己嘅必修科,但冇course係規定只可以某個stream嘅同學讀,所以有啲勁人係乜course都讀晒;有stream同冇stream最大分別係必修university physics、同stream相關嘅ESSC科同ESSC向multivariable calculus+linear algebra嘅math course,亦要求讀多啲4字頭(advanced)嘅科。Atmospheric science相關必修有atmospheric dynamics, ocean and climate;Geophysics有structural geology同physics of the earth. 問:個課程會係關於climate定weather多啲? 答:感覺上會偏climate啲,weather/meteorology嘅內容暫時比較少(希望之後會出現多啲新course)。個人認為其中一個原因係atmospheric science都由比較large scale嘅野睇起,所以開頭都係讀啲大型circulation同weather systems比較多。同埋感覺比較似係學how things work咁。 問:JS4601 (Science)同JS4633 (Earth System Science)有咩分別? 答:Broad-based入仲可以轉揀其他major,同埋低分啲;declare咗ESSC的話仲可以選擇齋ESSC(general stream),或者同4633一樣declare atmospheric science/geophysics stream。 4633直入的話要高分啲,要揀stream(聽聞仲有drop嘅選項),可以讀fast track,但其實ESSC裡面幾時reg咩科除咗有prerequisites之外冇乜限制,所以就算broad-based嘅同學都可以跟fast track咁讀。基本上個人認為讀書方面分別唔大,大部分資源上因為入學potential major寫咗ESSC的話都會擺你係mailing list同俾advisor你,但有啲scholarships淨係俾一入來已經係ESSC major身分嘅同學,所以如果高分(大概28+?)建議揀4633。 問:如果由broad base science入去會唔會好難? 答:其實就冇聽過符合咗最低要求都declare唔到major(例如某啲科要最低C range之類),所以唔需要擔心。(我係4633直入所以唔清楚) 問:係咪好需要數理底子? 答:都算係;Atmospheric Science stream嘅需求可能會比較大;geophysics就睇你選擇邊範,例如petrology的話唔需要太多數底,但大家同樣需要一啲物理根底。 問:冇讀phy/chem/bio/science經JS4633入去嘅話會唔會好難適應? 答:可能會,因為ESSC好需要phy同數底,year 1要追番好多basic嘅phy同chem可能會比較麻煩,始終理科係需要時間吸收嘅。 問:同DSE Geog學過嘅嘢有冇關係? 答:(我冇讀DSE Geog)聽同學講係得geological structures (faults嗰類野)同weather and climate有掂到少少;但基本上關係唔大,因為DSE Geog偏human同吹水,ESSC係睇數理同logically解釋一啲processes。 教學 問:多唔多field trips? 答:Geophysics嗰邊會多啲,唔只係香港,去台灣嘅都有! 收生 問:Interview大約會問咩同埋係咩形式? 答:我當年係group interview,各自自我介紹完抽一條相關嘅題目討論,但聽聞呢幾年都改緊模式,不能作準。 問:DSE放榜後(夠分入)先放番上Band A大唔大機會入到? 答:放榜後先擺唯一嘅分別係冇interview,但只要你本身係夠分嘅其實有冇interview都冇分別。
