    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Theme Park and ‘MICE’ Tourism

Despite receiving offers from both courses, I finally decided to go to IVE as it is one of the very few institutions in Hong Kong that offers a MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Convention, and Exhibition) programme.

    Christy Sit


    I was given opportunities to learn outside the classroom and experience real operations in the workplace!
    - Student of IVE Higher Diploma in Business Administration


    "After HKALE, I enrolled in the IVE 2-year (5 semesters) Higher Diploma in Business Administration. I came to realise that learning does not necessarily concentrate on theory and knowledge, but also practical experience, which is the key to success. During the summertime, I had an internship with a large property management company. The practical experience allowed me to better understand the management system in a corporate environment. I also noticed the importance of having good communication with clients as well as putting myself more in their shoes when it came to work.

    Besides that, I took part in a group project for which we were required to draw up a business proposal and run a stall in the Chinese New Year fair. For everything from strategy planning and stall bidding to product purchasing and budgeting, we made good use of the knowledge we learnt in class. This invaluable experience not only helped us move on to further studies and develop our careers, but also enriched our life experience!"

    It was an unforgettable competition!
    - 2009 Gold Prize of REMIX, the International Fur Design Competition at La Visionnaire
    - Championship of the full fur category and the Best Sketch Award in the Hong Kong Fur Design Competition 2009
    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Fashion Design and Product Development
    - Currently studying a Top-up Degree in Fashion Design offered by Nottingham Trent University (co-organised with SHAPE)


    "I dreamed of becoming a designer since I was very young. After graduating from secondary 7, I gave up the opportunity to go to university to study electrical engineering and took up fashion design at the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) to pursue my dreams. During my tenure at HKDI, I participated in many open competitions and made use of what I had learnt in my course. Although I was both jittery and excited at the same time, winning the Gold Prize of REMIX, the International Fur Design Competition at La Visionnaire held in Milan, was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. It gave me the opportunity to meet with 12 well-acclaimed fashion designers and industry insiders to introduce design concepts from my collection.

    After completing my Higher Diploma, I enrolled in the fashion design degree programme jointly organised by SHAPE and Nottingham Trent University in order to broaden my horizons. I sincerely hope that one day I will be able to showcase my own fashion collection on the world stage!"

    IVE offered me attachment opportunities which enabled me to put into practice what I have learnt.
    Current student of Higher Diploma in IT for Business


    “Though I was interested in the IT field, I did not have the chance to study it when I was in the secondary school. On completion of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), I decided to study a higher diploma programme in IT with IVE. As I did not study any IT related course in the past I worried about lagging behind the others when I first started the programme. It was very fortunate that lecturers in IVE are all experienced and dedicated to teaching. With their lectures and clear notes. I learnt very fast and my interest in IT keeps rising.



    Learning at IVE is not restricted to classroom only, I was offered a chance to serve as an intern in an IT company and help them produce a website. In the coming year, I’m going to take part in an IT competition and am planning to join an exchange programme in order to learn and experience more. “



    Daniel Liu


    Without IVE lecturers’ support, I could not win the championship in an open competition. The championship is the best reward for my teachers.
    - Current student of Higher Diploma in Mobile Computing


    “It is widely believed that the future of mobile computing industry will be thriving and full of unexpected potentials; I therefore chose IVE to prepare myself to enter glamorous field. At the very beginning, it was really a tough time for a student like me, who didn’t have any prior knowledge of computing. However, the encouragement given by teachers and supports offered by fellow students empowered me and encouraged me to go on.

    I am grateful to have a chance to participate in the MPFA multi-media competition last year with two of my classmates and won the championship. I was selected to be an intern of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority to help mobile app programming. This valuable opportunity enabled me to implement what I learnt during lessons.”

    To learn in pleasure and by means of practical training is the best way of learning!
    Current student of IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE


    “I am an outgoing person, always ready to take on new challenges. On completion of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), I decided to enroll into the IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE programme. I aspire to a career in the hospitality industry and am eager to equip myself through the diversified learning mode of the IVE.

    During my Year One study, I was offered the valuable internship opportunity in a travel agency in addition to the traditional classroom learning. In the course of internship, I was able to observe the actual operation environment of the business and apply knowledge I have learnt in school to the actual tasks. The experience did not only widen my horizon, but also gave me a chance to obtain real life working experience. More so, I am going to participate in an exchange programme to Singapore, which will definitely further enhance my learning experiences!”

Although I was both jittery and excited at the same time, winning the Gold Prize of REMIX, the International Fur Design Competition at La Visionnaire held in Milan, was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. It gave me the opportunity to meet with 12 well-acclaimed fashion designers and industry insiders to introduce design concepts from my collection. After completing my Higher Diploma, I enrolled in the fashion design degree programme jointly organised by SHAPE and Nottingham Trent University in order to broaden my horizons. I sincerely hope that one day I will be able to showcase my own fashion collection on the world stage!"

    After I determined and set my goal, I became more proactive in my studies!
    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Sports Management and Training Science
    - BA (Hons) in Sports Management at Sheffield Hallam University (First Class Honours) (co-organised with SHAPE)
    - Currently a Project Executive at North District Office of the Home Affairs Department


    "Following my strong passion for sports, I chose the course in Sports Management at IVE after completing       Secondary 7. With a clear goal and support from my teachers, I became more dedicated to my studies than ever before. The diversified articulation pathways of IVE courses allowed me to complete my top-up degree offered by Sheffield Hallam University in collaboration with SHAPE in only one year. Besides that, I also got the chance to organise large-scale events. Such experiences better prepared me for my current career at the North District Office."

    - Awardee of Alistair Harvey Foundation Scholarship Scheme
    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Biotechnology
    - First Class Honours degree in Biotechnology from the University of Ulster, UK
    - Master degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Ulster, UK

Later, I was awarded the Alistair Harvey Foundation scholarship to further my studies at the University of Ulster, UK. During my two years at the University of Ulster, I enjoyed opportunities to participate in different research projects and work with top-notch professors. Currently, I am a PhD student in a local university, specialising in cancer treatments using Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicines."

    "With the support from my family and my keen interest in hospitality, I decided to take the Higher Diploma in Hospitality and Catering, just like my sister.

    I was given opportunities to learn outside the classroom and experience real operations in the workplace!
    - Student of IVE Higher Diploma in Business Administration


    "After HKALE, I enrolled in the IVE 2-year (5 semesters) Higher Diploma in Business Administration. I came to realise that learning does not necessarily concentrate on theory and knowledge, but also practical experience, which is the key to success. During the summertime, I had an internship with a large property management company. The practical experience allowed me to better understand the management system in a corporate environment. I also noticed the importance of having good communication with clients as well as putting myself more in their shoes when it came to work. Besides that, I took part in a group project for which we were required to draw up a business proposal and run a stall in the Chinese New Year fair. For everything from strategy planning and stall bidding to product purchasing and budgeting, we made good use of the knowledge we learnt in class. This invaluable experience not only helped us move on to further studies and develop our careers, but also enriched our life experience!"

    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Environmental Technology 2005
    - Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Plymouth
    - Master’s Graduate in Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London, UK
    - Currently an Environmental Consultant at AECOM Asia Co., Ltd


    "There were plenty opportunities for site visits during my studies at IVE. The most memorable experience I had was carrying out sea water sampling tests in the areas around North Lantau Island and Ma Wan to measure the quality of water in Victoria Harbour. This valuable experience allowed me to acquire necessary knowledge and equipped me for further study and employment. After completing the Higher Diploma Programme at IVE, I received offers from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the City University of Hong Kong. At the same time, I was awarded a full scholarship from the Alistair Harvey Foundation to pursue a degree course in the UK. In the end, I decided to study at the University of Plymouth in the UK, majoring in Environmental Science. After I graduated, I was awarded sponsorship for further study in the UK to pursue a master degree in Environmental Science at Imperial College, so as to enrich my knowledge and broaden my international horizons.

    After completing my education, I came back to Hong Kong to start my career. The knowledge and skills I acquired at IVE soon helped me find a job as an assistant environmental consultant in a US environment management company, responsible for environmentally friendly duties."

    Besides that, I took part in a group project for which we were required to draw up a business proposal and run a stall in the Chinese New Year fair. For everything from strategy planning and stall bidding to product purchasing and budgeting, we made good use of the knowledge we learnt in class. This invaluable experience not only helped us move on to further studies and develop our careers, but also enriched our life experience!"

    To learn in pleasure and by means of practical training is the best way of learning!
    Current student of IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE


    “I am an outgoing person, always ready to take on new challenges. On completion of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), I decided to enroll into the IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE programme. I aspire to a career in the hospitality industry and am eager to equip myself through the diversified learning mode of the IVE.

    During my Year One study, I was offered the valuable internship opportunity in a travel agency in addition to the traditional classroom learning. In the course of internship, I was able to observe the actual operation environment of the business and apply knowledge I have learnt in school to the actual tasks. The experience did not only widen my horizon, but also gave me a chance to obtain real life working experience. More so, I am going to participate in an exchange programme to Singapore, which will definitely further enhance my learning experiences!”

    Without IVE lecturers’ support, I could not win the championship in an open competition. The championship is the best reward for my teachers.
    - Current student of Higher Diploma in Mobile Computing


    “It is widely believed that the future of mobile computing industry will be thriving and full of unexpected potentials; I therefore chose IVE to prepare myself to enter glamorous field. At the very beginning, it was really a tough time for a student like me, who didn’t have any prior knowledge of computing. However, the encouragement given by teachers and supports offered by fellow students empowered me and encouraged me to go on.

    I am grateful to have a chance to participate in the MPFA multi-media competition last year with two of my classmates and won the championship. I was selected to be an intern of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority to help mobile app programming. This valuable opportunity enabled me to implement what I learnt during lessons.”

    IVE offered me attachment opportunities which enabled me to put into practice what I have learnt.
    Current student of Higher Diploma in IT for Business


    “Though I was interested in the IT field, I did not have the chance to study it when I was in the secondary school. On completion of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), I decided to study a higher diploma programme in IT with IVE. As I did not study any IT related course in the past I worried about lagging behind the others when I first started the programme. It was very fortunate that lecturers in IVE are all experienced and dedicated to teaching. With their lectures and clear notes. I learnt very fast and my interest in IT keeps rising.



    Learning at IVE is not restricted to classroom only, I was offered a chance to serve as an intern in an IT company and help them produce a website. In the coming year, I’m going to take part in an IT competition and am planning to join an exchange programme in order to learn and experience more. “

    To learn in pleasure and by means of practical training is the best way of learning!
    Current student of IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE


    “I am an outgoing person, always ready to take on new challenges. On completion of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), I decided to enroll into the IVE Higher Diploma in Tourism and MICE programme. I aspire to a career in the hospitality industry and am eager to equip myself through the diversified learning mode of the IVE.

    During my Year One study, I was offered the valuable internship opportunity in a travel agency in addition to the traditional classroom learning. In the course of internship, I was able to observe the actual operation environment of the business and apply knowledge I have learnt in school to the actual tasks. The experience did not only widen my horizon, but also gave me a chance to obtain real life working experience. More so, I am going to participate in an exchange programme to Singapore, which will definitely further enhance my learning experiences!”

    Without IVE lecturers’ support, I could not win the championship in an open competition. The championship is the best reward for my teachers.
    - Current student of Higher Diploma in Mobile Computing


    “It is widely believed that the future of mobile computing industry will be thriving and full of unexpected potentials; I therefore chose IVE to prepare myself to enter glamorous field. At the very beginning, it was really a tough time for a student like me, who didn’t have any prior knowledge of computing. However, the encouragement given by teachers and supports offered by fellow students empowered me and encouraged me to go on.

    I am grateful to have a chance to participate in the MPFA multi-media competition last year with two of my classmates and won the championship. I was selected to be an intern of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority to help mobile app programming. This valuable opportunity enabled me to implement what I learnt during lessons.”

    Given opportunities to learn outside classroom and experience real business workplace
    - Student of IVE Higher Diploma in Business Administration


    "After HKALE, I enrolled in the IVE 2-year (5 semesters) Higher Diploma in Business Administration. I came to realise that learning does not necessarily concentrate on theory and knowledge, but also practical experience, which is the key to success. During the summertime, I had an internship with a large property management company. The practical experience allowed me to better understand the management system in a corporate environment. I also noticed the importance of having good communication with clients as well as putting myself more in their shoes when it came to work.

    Besides that, I took part in a group project for which we were required to draw up a business proposal and run a stall in the Chinese New Year fair. For everything from strategy planning and stall bidding to product purchasing and budgeting, we made good use of the knowledge we learnt in class. This invaluable experience not only helped us move on to further studies and develop our careers, but also enriched our life experience!"

    After completing my Higher Diploma, I enrolled in the fashion design degree programme jointly organised by SHAPE and Nottingham Trent University in order to broaden my horizons. I sincerely hope that one day I will be able to showcase my own fashion collection on the world stage!"

    I got into university through non-JUPAS, which steered me towards my bright future as an Engineer!
    - Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Civil Engineering
    - Currently a student of BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST)


    "A JUPAS application is not the only way to enter local universities! I chose the Higher Diploma in Civil Engineering at IVE after my secondary 7 graduation. Higher Diploma qualifications are recognised by local universities.

    I was given an opportunity to work at Fugro, responsible for building inspection related jobs. I could apply what I had learnt in the classroom to the workplace. After graduating from IVE, I applied for the degree in Civil Engineering offered by local universities through the non-JUPAS admission scheme and received offers from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University and the City University of Hong Kong. I selected the Bachelor degree programme in Civil Engineering at HKUST and was given subject exemptions on the strength of my recognised Higher Diploma qualifications from IVE."

    Awarded the scholarship to complete bachelor and master degrees in United Kingdom, running towards my dream!
    -Graduate of IVE Higher Diploma in Analytical Science and Biotechnology
    -Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biotechnology, University of Ulster(First Class Honors)
    -Master of Research in Molecular Biology with Distinction at University of Nottingham
    -Doctor of Philosophy, Faculty of Medicine at University of Hong Kong

    "Since I was in the secondary school, I was fascinated by the influences of biotechnology on gene therapy, which carries promises for cures in treating diseases and alleviating suffering of patients. Upon graduation from Secondary 7, I enrolled in the IVE Higher Diploma in Analytical Science and Biotechnology to pursue my passion. The programme offered me abundant placement opportunities; I had once assigned to work in a large-scale aquarium and the Simon F. S. Li Marine Science Laboratory in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Such experience had enabled me to explore interest in marine organisms as well as allowed me to apply what I have learnt in the classroom into cutting edge genetic research.

    After completing the High Diploma, I was awarded the Alistair Harvey Foundation Scholarship to study the bachelor and master degrees in United Kingdom. Acknowledges for the credit exemption for IVE Higher Diploma holders, I spent only two years to complete the bachelor and master degrees. Studying abroad had definitely enriched my knowledge and broadened my global horizon. After graduation, I came back to Hong Kong to continue my doctorate research degree so as to head for my dream."

    - Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Plymouth
    - Master’s Graduate in Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London, UK
    - Currently an Environmental Consultant at AECOM Asia Co., Ltd


    "There were plenty opportunities for site visits during my studies at IVE. The most memorable experience I had was carrying out sea water sampling tests in the areas around North Lantau Island and Ma Wan to measure the quality of water in Victoria Harbour. This valuable experience allowed me to acquire necessary knowledge and equipped me for further study and employment.

    After completing the Higher Diploma Programme at IVE, I received offers from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the City University of Hong Kong. At the same time, I was awarded a full scholarship from the Alistair Harvey Foundation to pursue a degree course in the UK. In the end, I decided to study at the University of Plymouth in the UK, majoring in Environmental Science.

    After I graduated, I was awarded sponsorship for further study in the UK to pursue a master degree in Environmental Science at Imperial College, so as to enrich my knowledge and broaden my international horizons. After completing my education, I came back to Hong Kong to start my career. The knowledge and skills I acquired at IVE soon helped me find a job as an assistant environmental consultant in a US environment management company, responsible for environmentally friendly duties."
