Francesco TEOPINI TERZETTI CASAGRANDE
2015-16 HKPFS Awardee in Music
The HKPFS has been a true blessing for my academic career! Thanks to this scheme – and also thanks to the priceless help I received from my supervisors at HKBU – I was able to focus completely on my research. During my studies, I made my dream come true – having presented my findings in important international conferences, and won the Wai Tak Land Award for outstanding academic performance.
2014-15 HKPFS Awardee in Visual Arts
HKBU is a place where I was able to identify the expertise needed in order to supervise and facilitate my research. The Academy of Visual Arts is suitably positioned to respond to the new demands being made by the Art and Artists in Hong Kong.
2014/15 HKPFS Awardee in Finance and Decision Sciences
I am grateful to my supervisors for giving me fruitful guidance in developing my research and teaching skills. I enjoy the flexibility and mobility of being a researcher, especially the opportunity to present my research work globally such as in Paris, Sydney and Lisbon. I also got hands-on teaching experience as a part-time lecturer at a local University. During the summer study at NOVA School of Business & Economics in Portugal, our group research proposal was awarded as the Best Project. I will join a local institution as a Lecturer after my graduation. I am looking forward to teaching energetic students and presenting my dissertation on assets seasonalities at Southern Finance Association Annual Meeting in Key West, Florida.

2015/16 HKPFS Awardee in Chinese Medicine
With the advance research facilities, excellent academic environment, strong faculty and quality education at HKBU, I am going to fulfill my desire to be a researcher in the field of anticancer drug research. Moreover, HKBU is an excellent platform to mingle with multi-cultural people. Over the past 1 year and 6 months, with the support of HKPFS, I got awesome opportunities to attend conferences in the USA and Denmark that will certainly flourish my research knowledge.

2015/16 HKPFS Awardee in Geography
I had the opportunity to be twice a visiting researcher at the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was able to do my data collection there and to interact with top researchers in the field for my research findings. Besides, I spent another three months as an intern in policy research at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris. These valuable experiences are crucial for my professional development.

LEE Ying Tan
Alumnus of 'Master of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Chinese Medicine' programme, School of Chinese Medicine
Graduation Year: 2017
The pharmaceutical sciences in Chinese medicine programme has combined both theories and practices which enables students to learn the latest development in Chinese medicine and gain hands on experience in clinical diagnosis and drug prescriptions. During my studies, I was taught by experienced professors on the pharmaceutical processes and had the opportunity to witness the development and production of crude drugs. The training is so much more than becoming a specialist in Chinese medicine. You can also learn about quality assurance, drug safety assessment, production management and much more.
