  • About SRIROpen or Close

    Funded by Lam Woo Foundation Limited, Lam Woo Foundation Senior Reporters-in-Residence Scheme was launch in 2013. The Department invites at least two seasoned journalists from local and overseas to join us on campus for two to three weeks. They give lectures, lead small group discussions, do demonstrations and share their experiences.

    In this way students can learn more about the latest developments in the news industry. At the same time, media practitioners can be inspired through the contacts with a group of future journalists.
