CLASS booths filled with Life on Information Day

CityU held its Information Day in October to provide information about admission, curriculums, and campus life for undergraduates through exhibitions, talks, workshops and activities run by colleges and workshops run by various departments. The event attracted a big turnout, with constant flows of school-leavers and their parents and teachers. The exhibition venues of CLASS were filled with activities and excitement.

All hands on deck at CLASS

CLASS and its seven departments namely: Applied Social Sciences, Asian and International Studies, Chinese and History, English, Linguistics and Translation, Media and Communication, and Public Policy set up exhibition booths in Chan Tai Ho Multi-purpose Hall. Professors and current students were present to offer departmental introduction to visitors and answer their inquiries. On top of these, the Department of Applied Social Sciences organised guided tours of its laboratories; participants could gain a deeper understanding of the applicability and practices of the knowledge and skills. The Department of Media and Communication took visitors to the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre and showed them around the state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities there, including an eye tracker laboratory, a production studio, a recording studio, and a 3D virtual production studio.

Talks on new admission model popular

The admission model at CLASS will change from college-based to department-based starting from the 2016 intake. Because of the modified entrance requirements for JUPAS admission at CityU, the departments at CLASS gave a total of 19 talks to the attendees on the admission requirements via the JUPAS and non-JUPAS routes respectively, as well as the selection criteria of various departments. Talks intended for new school-leavers given by CLASS departments were very popular. They attracted over 2,300 participants, more than the expected turnout. The departments gave attendees the latest information about admission and programmes, points to consider in deciding one's specialised field, and matters about major and minor subjects. There were also Q&A sessions for prospective students and parents, who were encouraged to talk with the professors to find out more about the departments and their works.
