The Department of Chinese and History strives to devote our effort in accordance with the mission of the City University of Hong Kong, offering a peer mentoring program known as Student Mentoring Scheme (SMS) for all students to join.

Recruitment for Student Mentoring Scheme (SMS) has already started. Students who aspire to serve as a mentor are welcome to join our family!

Mentoring will be conducted through face-to-face meeting and e-mentoring in order to provide academic and personal support for the mentees. Our Student Mentoring Team will organize various activities including mentors-mentees meeting, booster camp, book hunting as well as a Thanksgiving party, with the participation of both academic staff and students.

Our scheme aims to:

  • create a family-like atmosphere for all CAH students.
  • build up mutual-friendly and supportive relationships among the senior and junior students.
  • enhance a strong sense of belonging to the Department of Chinese and History and CityU.
