Overseas Study Programmes 2013

 

澳門理工學院為鼓勵學生利用暑假到海外進修,提升外語水平,擴闊國際視野,特於2013年8月9日至24日舉辦「海外學習計劃」,選派18名學生前往澳洲昆士蘭大學進行為期兩週的文化交流學習。

理工學生抵達澳洲昆士蘭後受到寄宿家庭的熱情款待,從生活中體驗到澳洲風土人情及社會習俗。透過是次學習計劃,同學們既可提升英語水平,又可增強溝通技巧,課程包括語言學習及演講訓練。除課堂學習外,同學們分別參觀了當地貨櫃碼頭、農業博覽會及文化藝術機構,全面了解運輸業的發展及運作,認識到當地農業及畜牧業對社區經濟的影響,以及體驗當地人對節日慶典及文化藝術的重視。另外,為加深同學對當地旅遊業的認識,由當地學生帶領理工同學遊覽當地景點,解說箇中歷史文化和城市特色,以達至兩地學生互動交流學習。

參與學生表示,是次計劃讓他們度過了一個既充實又有意義的暑假,感謝學院提供機會,讓他們體驗當地文化,結識來自不同地方的朋友,增廣見聞。不少學生因而愛上留學的感覺,表示畢業後有意到海外升學。

An “Overseas Study Programme” was organised during the summer vacation to broaden students’ academic opportunities and widen their horizons, 18 students from different faculties engaging in a two-week study programme at the University of Queensland in Australia.

MPI students received a warm welcome after their arrival in Brisbane where they learned about local customs and social culture via their stays with host families and through daily communication with the locals. Through a two-week ‘English Language Studies Programme’, students improved their English language and communication abilities as well as enriching their professional knowledge and presentation skills. In addition to lessons, students visited the Port of Brisbane, an exhibition show, local organizations, cultural museums and art galleries to expand their knowledge of shipping developments and operations, and the effect of agriculture and art on the local economy. Local tourism was also included, MPI students being escorted by local students to learn more about the history, culture and significance of the city through this interactive learning process.

The participants found the programme very fruitful and thanked MPI for providing this opportunity for them to enjoy such memorable learning experiences, meet friends from around the world and widen their horizons. Many participating students said that they would now like to further their study abroad after graduation.

The Student Affairs Office which organised the event commented that MPI advocates a professional and liberal education and would like students to enhance their whole person development through a variety of activities.
