HKBU welcomed a new cohort of over 2,000 students for the 2021-22 academic year at its 66th Convocation on 7 September. The event marked the commencement of the new students’ exciting journey of academic inquiry and personal development at HKBU. 

 

In his address to the new students, Professor Alexander Wai, President and Vice-Chancellor of HKBU, said that over the past 18 months we have all experienced a challenging time as a result of the pandemic. He asserted that challenges create changes, and he encouraged new students to embrace the challenges as they may be surprised by the unforeseen results and what they can achieve. 

 

“The University will continue to build on our rich heritage in culture, the humanities and the arts with the support of science and technology. This legacy will provide you with the well-rounded education needed in this new world, and it will enable you to fly high. Our transdisciplinary education and the personalised learning pathways designed for you at HKBU will take you to a higher plane, where your dreams can take flight,” he told the freshmen.
