Lam Wai-lun, Alan
Graduate of Associate in Applied Social Sciences (Social Policy and Administration)
Articulated into HKBU’s Bachelor of Social Sciences (Hons) in Sociology
The Associate in Applied Social Sciences (Social Policy and Administration) programme offered me a lot of social policy related subjects which enabled me to know how policies are formulated to respond to community needs. Besides, this programme also provided internship training for me to put theory and knowledge into practice in a social services organisation and understand its daily operation.
