Student Life

Life in the School of Communication is vibrant: students learn not only in lectures and tutorials but from practicums, internships, conferences, guest talks, international collaborations, study tours and exchanges outside Hong Kong. Each Concentration of the undergraduate programme has its own workshop, in which students produce experimental newspapers, run a web-based broadcast news station, launch publicity campaigns and organise digital arts exhibitions. Moreover, the Communication Society connects undergraduate students of the School and organizes many exciting activities, such as orientation camp, academic week, sports competition, singing contest and study tour.

At #HKBUCOMM, learning happens everywhere.

Service Learning

Shining a light on local para-athletes through feature stories

Supported by the Hong Kong Paralympic Committee & Sports Association for the Physically Disabled, students enrolled in the Sports and Disability in the Hong Kong Chinese Media course interviewed 16 local para-athletes and compiled their striving stories into a book. The students also shared their works on social media platforms to promote inclusiveness and give the public a better understanding of disabled athletes. They also learnt more the role of sports reporting in bringing changes to the community.

Create Motion Graphic Video for promoting Gas Safety

Students who attended the Motion Graphic Design course produced a series of short motion graphic videos that deliver public education messages for several local organisations, including The Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (Towngas), the Hospital Authority, Stewards Hong Kong and the Division of Nursing Education at HKBU’s School of Continuing Education. One of the videos, entitled Ambassador of Gas Safety, aims to educate children aged 10 or below on how to deal with a possible case of gas leakage.

Other Learning Experiences

Journalism students co-produce news shows with worldwide partners

A group of International Journalism students participated in the international news project Global Campus Studio Live, which is initiated by Ryerson University in Canada. They worked with peers from six overseas universities and virtually co-produced a series of online newscasts. These newscasts consisted of multiple shows put together by media students from around the globe, including Canada, India, South Africa, the Netherlands, the US and the UK, under the theme “Let’s Talk Racism”. Different areas such as history and context; education work and media; current events and personal stories were addressed.

Journalism students visited Rwanda in 2019 to report on how the small Central African country is rebuilding and repairing since the 1994 genocide.
