Guided campus tours allow students to experience the atmosphere in this educational environment and learn more about the campus. Visiting students are shown the campus facilities, including the Learning Resources Centre and Knowledge Centres, the workshops and studios of different design departments, showcase displays and seasonal exhibitions in collaboration with international partners.
Each tour for 20-25 students accompanied by at least one teacher or staff member lasts 45 minutes. A tailor-made itinerary highlighting particular workshops or design programmes can be arranged with at least 3 weeks’ notice.
Each design department provides a unique taster programme for students to get a taste of learning at HKDI and learn more about the design industry.
Each taster programme for 18-25 students accompanied by at least one teacher or staff member lasts around 1.5 hours. Applications should be made one month in advance and activities are subject to workshop availability.
In these career talks, HKDI lecturers share programme information, career prospects in design industries and admission requirements. With current student projects and industry collaborations, lecturers share the fun and interesting teaching methods and knowledge exchange programmes.
Interested schools are advised to indicate the academic programmes in which they are interested. Each talk lasts 45-60 minutes, subject to further negotiation. HKDI student work can be showcased, depending on availability.
Outstanding alumni who have received academic and industry recognition participate in sharing and Q&A sessions with secondary school students. Through this interaction, students learn about the educational environment at HKDI, career prospects and solutions to career planning from experienced graduates not much older than themselves.
Interested schools are advised to indicate the academic programmes in which they are interested. Each sharing session of 40 minutes is followed by an open Q&A session. A maximum of two alumni can attend each activity. A moderator from the secondary school should lead the students in asking related and effective questions.
