Hong Kong Baptist University originated from Hong Kong Baptist College, a higher education institution founded in 1956. It became a university with a Christian education heritage in 1994. The university is acclaimed for its journalism and communications programmes. Set up in 1968, the university's School of Communications was the first faculty to offer communications-related courses in Hong Kong and has served as the training ground for many successful people in the media industry. Baptist University is also known for its social work and human resources management programmes. Distinguished alumni include legislator Cheung Chiu-hung. The university has five residential halls in Kowloon Tong, which can accommodate 1,630 undergraduates. Last year, 91 per cent of graduates were hired within three months and 100 per cent employment rates were recorded for graduates in human resources management, digital graphic communication and the broadcast journalism industry. STUDENT'S VIEW Enoch Lam, a second year biology major, said his professors had impressed him. 'They always encourage us to be more active when learning and to ask as many questions as we want, no matter how penetrating, or even simple they may be.' Some professors hold question-and-answer sessions at the end of lectures to let the students interact with the material they have just learned about. Some hold compulsory tutorials for students to discuss the lectures. 'I really feel the professors care about the students,' he said.
