One of our Faculty's students shone in the University Undergraduate Research Fellowship Programme Poster Presentation Session
The Undergraduate Research Fellowship Programme (URFP) offers opportunities for academically outstanding undergraduate students to undertake research under the guidance and supervision of academics who have a strong research track record and experience in training research postgraduate students.
As one of the URFP awardees in 2015-16, our Year 4 BSc(SPEECH) student, Miss NG Ka Hei, Heidy, outshone other URFP award holders and won the Best Poster Award in the Programme's Poster Presentation Session held on April 12th, 2016.
Heidy’s project, entitled "Understanding the Relationship between Executive Functions and Reading in School-age Children", examined the relationship between executive functions, which are congnitive functions thought to affect language, and Chinese and English reading in Hong Kong bilingual students. She will give an oral presentation of her study at the 23rd Annual Meeting of the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading which will be held in July, in Porto, Portugal.
Congratulations to Heidy!
