Graduate of Higher Diploma in Psychology of Education 2015
Currently working for Organization for students with Special Educational Needs
After my work at kindergarten and tuition centers, I found further training was required. Compared among major institutions, I was interested in the higher diploma programme in Educational Psychology of LIFE the most. During the last two years, I met some lecturers who have great personalities and enthusiasm in teaching. I was so impressed with their knowledge too. I also appreciated the rich library resources very much. Practicum in a special education school during the studies provided me an opportunity to combine theory and practice experience together and earn a solid knowledge. The students are so energetic and full of sincerity. Studying at school should be like that, happy and joyful. Today I achieved what I pursuit, and then go on the next goal. I will go on my further study. All the best to the fellow lecturers and graduates. Fulfill your dream and make it achievable!

I’m indeed grateful for the amazing school life at LIFE in the past year. The lecturers here are friend-like mentors to me and they are really helpful when you ask them questions in or after classes. I also feel extremely lucky to have met two of my best friends here. We did our homework together and we studied hard together for the exam. If someone tells you that it’s hard to find true friendship in a tertiary institute, don’t trust them! The most wonderful thing for me is joining the English excursion tour to Scotland. The scenery and weather there were absolutely stunning. Don’t miss the chance to join exchange programmes or excursion tours; otherwise, you will regret it. All in all, I am happy that I have enrolled in this programme.

Year 3, Bachelor of Social Sciences (Hons) in Psychology, Lingnan University
I am grateful to all teachers as they have helped me a lot. They are my mentors and have inspired me to be a better individual. The programme I have enrolled in has helped me to understand myself better. It has also helped me develop different skills, like communication, organisation, and thinking skills which are all very useful for further studies. From the courses, I have learned that our behaviors can be explained through psychology. As my understanding of the field of psychology gradually increases, I feel more confident in exploring the subject and decide to further my studies in this field. Other than studying, I have gained a valuable internship experience as well. I have had the opportunity to cooperate with some early childhood educators and handle administrative work. I really enjoyed this two-year Higher Diploma study life a lot.

Year 1, Bachelor of Social Science in Gender Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
I was glad that I had articulated to the university and deepened self-understanding after my 2-year study at LIFE. At first, I was worried that I could not catch up with the class. Luckily, the lecturers were so nice that they were willing to answer our questions and provide valuable advice on academic and career planning. I used to be nervous about my study and suffered from huge pressure for a long time. The lecturer came to talk to me during the class and shared with me how to get a balance between study and leisure, in which I understood I had to relax sometimes. In addition, the programme offers internship opportunities and valuable practical experience which makes me more passionate in Psychology and allows me to determine in achieving my dream! The experience and knowledge gained at LIFE has made me more mature and equipped myself to handle the courses at university as well as enhancing my self-confidence. I believe I will have the ability to overcome the challenges and difficulties encountered in the future.

The programme provided many internship opportunities for us. LIFE and the internship kindergartens provided various support to me. For example, the instructor gave me practical advice when I needed to design a teaching plan. In addition, I had the opportunity to participate in different types of school activities such as birthday parties, picnics and graduation ceremonies so that I could better understand the working environment of kindergartens and would be of great help to my future career.
