"The programme is very beneficial as it provided the insights on the special features relevant to each of the Chinese and English languages, and the interesting techniques in translation and interpretation provided me with more know-hows and have built my confidence in doing translation work.
As an adult learner, there are many demands on my time and energy. Often times I worried about whether I could juggle between my studies at the University and my full-time career. However, I have learnt that it is not an impossible task and I am glad I have come a long way. I realise the importance of carving out proper time for studies and protecting that time in an uncompromising manner. In addition, setting aside an environment or having a dedicated space where I can immerse myself into studying without being distracted is also very helpful.
The University's Scholarship scheme not only offers a practical financial help in my tertiary education, but more importantly, it serves as a strong motivation for me to pursue my studies with a greater sense of commitment. I am very thankful to the University for the kind gesture in offering such Student Award scheme. To me, it embodies the spirit of encouraging lifelong learning."
