你係MPhil 定MSc 先? 有無做dissertation? 打算full time定part time?如果只有MSc , 無做dissertation及打算part time兩者其中有一個答案係係, HKU 就應該唔會收; CityU 的話, MSc 成績好好, 都有機會收.



可以 HKU 就 HKU 啦...

Sigh .. obviously it depends on your research interests. Pick the professor(s) that you are interested to work with, NOT the school. 

I assume you have already read up on their research? If so, you can cold-email them. I will also suggest you figure out who the PhD coordinator (for your area) is, and contact him.

I obviously don't know how the particular program operates, but for mine (and all the colleagues that run PhD programs), we *always* talk to every applicants before admitting them.

竟然係City,通常所知cityu猛既prof都係EE/CS個邊,但去public policy既話,就唔太清楚
phD的話...,睇最有興趣既field入面既prof比較好...,反而校名幫助一般般...(如果間公司睇phD牌頭係睇大學而唔係睇prof既話..,相信好打極有限)

The OP may or may not go to industry after his PhD (i suppose in HK the academic market is narrow though?). I don't think there are a lot of public policy industrial jobs. May be some think tank?

If he is interviewing for an industrial research job, the recruiting process will be similar to an academic job (i.e. there will be expert evaluating his research track record). For a good research position, it is also NOT all about the prof (although that is certainly part of the signal). It is about his own research contribution. In fact, we are recruiting right now, and one of the main issue for students from established profs is whether they can do research independently, or if they are being carried. In previous hires, we had actually called up the candidates' coauthors (may or may not be the supervising professor) to ask about their specific contributions.

Certainly it is a waste of his time if he is not going for a research career.

Do you have a family to support or mortagge to pay off? You will be around 45 when you graduate. And you will have big trouble finding a job as no companies are willing to hire a mid aged PhD grad, and academic jobs are rare. They prefer overseas PhDs and tend to avoid inbreeding. But if you are rich it shouldn’t be a problem.


Hku 其他都喺野雞大學

Thanks. That pressure not high. And HK is dying, I prefer to have this change if possible rather than work for employers in HK, as those private companies all no society responsibilities. I try to have a more meaningful life by trying this change. Of course I not sure they will choose me or not, I am just fair in academic. But would like to
spend 3-4 years to see what's next.

In my field of public policy, those courses are famous only HKU and CityU.
So I will try either one. After read opinions I think I will choose CityU.

Another important advice. For profit companies don’t care about social responsibility, ethics... but this should not be the reason for you to take up an academic job because academia has its dark side too, very dark. Professors can be academically unethical too. For example they sometimes fabricate the data, only select the ‘right’ data, or hire someone to do the research and write the papers for them. Yet you will be spending most of your time doing research sacrifcing your students. If you are not lucky enough, you will likely end up teaching in a community college. This is even worse in terms of job security, satisfaction, prospect... When students are the customers, you must be an edutainer doing all sorts of things to please them. I learn it the hard way so I’m thinking of getting out of it. In fact I’m planning my way out.

So good luck
