2010畢業 – IIHCS : Advanced Certificate in Professional Cookery
升讀GMIT – Bachelor of Business in Culinary Arts (Year 1)
我曾在香港的酒店做西廚,但在香港做廚通常會被叫「廚房佬」 而不是Chef,因為香港現時都沒有一個完善既教學制度,例如有關cookery既大學課程,有的都只是一般証書課程,而且在香港學跟在外國學西餐一定有所出入,所以我就選擇報讀愛爾蘭國際酒店及餐飲學院的課程,可升讀愛爾蘭國立的大學,取得學位。現在我已完成國家高級証書課程,入讀了Galway- Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT)大學,目標是完成大學,再回香港發展。

Studying in Ireland
13th April, 2015

Studying overseas was never part of my plan. Yet, I came to Ireland to study because I wish to broaden my horizon.
Ireland, as a European country, has lots of difference when comparing to Hong Kong, especially in Galway, it is very quiet where you can focus on your study and on yourself. I have revised my learning style and found out the most effective way of learning for me. Also, classes are small that you can easily concentrate in class and make progress. What’s more, with the encouragement of your teachers, you will learn to motivate yourself when no one will help you to achieve your goals. It highly depends on how much effort you put in.
Galway has a spectacular sea view, you will feel relaxed and relieved whenever you are stressed about your work or being homesick. People in Ireland are very nice and friendly, they are always willing to talk to you. Although there are far less entertainment than in Hong Kong, you will be more likely to try new things and earn a new experience. In addition, you can join festivals such as Saint Patrick’s Day, Food Festival, all of these festivals show the friendliness and hospitality of Irish people.

Studying in Ireland provides me with an opportunity to experience an entirely different culture. The environment is extremely comfortable with a slower tempo and relaxing atmosphere which allows me to refresh myself after finishing study. One thing that has impressed me a lot is that Irish people are unbelievably friendly and kind. They are willing to chat with you despite not knowing you. Apart from the environment and culture, the quality education in Ireland also strengthens my academic knowledge a lot. Undoubtedly, studying abroad is the best way for me to become a better English user which is also one of the purposes of me being in Ireland. As I communicate with teachers in English all the time, I am actually becoming more confident when interacting with native speakers. Therefore, I think I have made the right decision to study in Ireland. A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step, I am sure that I can progress myself continuously and have an outstanding development in the future.

Studying in Ireland

1st April,2015

I never thought i would had a chances to study overseas in Ireland, even I studied in Professional Cookery was just an unknown. To be honest, I am not a student that loves to study at all, the moment that I choose to study in cookery wasn’t the subject I want to study, but I would like to try.
Now, I had lived in Ireland for a year and two month, in this year I am studying level 6 Professional Cookery and working in the Galway Bay Hotel as a part time job.
the days in the past that I studied, I found I loved to be a chef and passion on the culinary.
I hope I could study in Bachlor of Art in Culinary Art in GMIT.

到外國升學,一直是我的夢想,但家庭收入根本不能夠支付,所以我在香港中五畢業後便出來工作,但工作幾年後發覺學歷真的很重要,尤其大學畢業才可算是有個出路,所以當我知道愛爾蘭國際酒店及餐飲學院的課程可以助我半工讀,我便決定用我幾年來的積蓄交了首年學費,然後我便到愛爾蘭升學。我最初選擇廚藝課程,一來可以為我的英語打好基礎,二來可以透過實習找到暑期工和兼職,現在即使我已轉讀了商科,但我仍然相信可以自給自足完成大學為目標。
