Meet the Students from the University of Hong Kong

Tem Hansen

Tem Hansen is a master's of journalism exchange student at the University of Hong Kong. He is originally from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, where he is pursuing a two-year master's in media studies. Since arriving in Hong Kong a few months ago, he has fallen in love with the journalism program at HKU as well as the busy vibe of the city.

As a film and media major, he has worked with audio-visual media both theoretically and practically for the past four years, producing documentaries and short fictional films as well as analytical reports on narrative structures and framing. All these have given him a solid background for producing television news, which has been a growing interest of his during his stay in Hong Kong.

Besides his interest in the news-media industry, Hansen indulges himself with various cultural activities and sports. As a former professional football player in Scandinavia, he still follows the European leagues on television and play a few times every week.

Marcus Ko

Marcus Ko was born and raised in Hong Kong. Now a senior at the University of Hong Kong, he is majoring in journalism and global studies.

Ko did his first internship at a local Chinese newspaper in 2008. Right after the internship, he spent his second year of college at the Danish School of Journalism, Denmark, where he studied journalism and multimedia, and TV journalism. He has experience covering stories in Belgium and Northern Ireland, as well as producing news stories in Latvia and Denmark.

He is now back in Hong Kong and will start working for a magazine in December. He would like to work in different fields of journalism after graduation and dreams of working as a foreign correspondent someday. In his spare time, he likes traveling, reading and going to the movies. He also enjoys acting very much which is why you may see him on stage once in a while.

 Andrew Lau

Andrew Lau is a master's of journalism student at the University of Hong Kong. Before graduate school, he completed his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University, where he majored in radio, television and film. During his time at Northwestern, he anchored and reported for the campus radio station WNUR. He also directed, produced and edited a documentary about American collegiate cycling.

Born in Los Angeles but raised in Hong Kong, Lau is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. He also began studying Japanese three years ago and last year studied in Hokkaido, Japan. He hopes his language skills will be useful in his work for ABC News On Campus and in his internship at International Channel Shanghai this coming winter.

In his free time, Lau enjoys taking pictures, spending time with his family and his dog, and going to karaoke with friends.
