Message from Professors


"I have the pleasure of serving as a teacher for both the HKU Neuroscience Academy for the talented, and the HKU Medical and Healthcare Academy for the Talented. These are the perfect summer programmes for highly motivated students who are interested in biomedical sciences or medical professions. Classes are interactive, fun and engaging. During the programme, students will also pick up important clinical and research skills. Last but not least, it is a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded peers with similar career goals and aspirations. I hope you will join us for next year’s programmes!"

"As a legal practitioner and law teacher, I have taught in the HKU Legal Academy for the Talented for the past 2 years. I love to interact with students who are curious about the law and I hope to be able to inspire and nurture young legal minds. Through the programme I aim to provide students with practical insights about studying law and share my experience about the legal profession. Law is interesting because it regulates all aspects of our daily lives. I hope that you will find out why after joining our programme."
