Every year, the Arthur W. Page Centre announces its competition for the study of integrity in public communication.

The Centre awards grants of $500 to $10,000 each to support scholars and professionals making important contributions to the knowledge, practice or public understanding of ethics and responsibility in public communication.

The Centre supports innovative research and educational or public service projects in a wide variety of academic disciplines and professional fields.


Year 3 students of the Department of Communication Studies, alumni and faculty members have gathered to share their experiences and inspire students to prepare for their future careers. The event allowed students to ask burning questions and gain inspiration from our alumni’s success stories.

The event was joined by COMS’ PR alumnus, Spencer Chan, who is an executive trainee at Jardine Matheson. His inspiring career talk focused on helping students thrive on their chosen career paths. Attending students also gained insights into the global training program, learned what to do for a successful internship and received guidance from their faculty mentors.

The Department of Communication Studies opened its doors for the annual Info Day on Saturday, 7th of October. Hundreds of secondary school students took part in workshops, tours, and games, experiencing the vibrant campus life. Students learned about the newest 2024 Entrance Requirements and gained valuable information for JUPAS admission, empowering them to make informed decisions about their future.

At the School of Communication, students marvelled at the cutting-edge facilities and the impressive work of current students. The COMS faculty members held engaging and informative presentations, sparking students’ interest in PR & Advertising. The Young Agency also had a booth during Info Day and shared some of their academic lives with prospective students.
