Which of the following offer is better? Please state the reasons.
1) CityU Translation and Interpretation (Senior Year)
2) HKBU BA (First Year)
Thanks a lot.
Sorry that I haven't explained clearly. The HKBU BA programme is Bachelor of Arts which is also language related. However, major is not yet declared at the first year.
In your opinion, which university has higher reputation on language-related programme?
I see what you mean. You must be confused why I can't make the decision.
Actually, many people say that CityU is more famous in BBA (finance in general) instead of art. It seems that HKBU has a better reputation in art subject. That's why I ask for opinion. Sorry for being so unclear.

Your question is quite weird. What BA programme is offered by BU? One thing very strange is City U offering you a third or fourth year of translation, this implies you have a good qualification in translation or language related programme, the only logical and clever choice is entering the City U programme since you need much less time to complete a degree with competitive advantage.
From information you provided, I guess BU only offering you a non - language programme, so the University requires you to study the full programme, of course this is not a good choice.

The supplement information makes your "dilemma" much much more peculiar. As you said, BU only offers you a BA "language related" programme, and you will spend 4 years there. But City U offers the real translation programme just needs 2 years to complete! How hard can it be to choose?

In fact until now, I still don't understand why you have such choice difficulty. City U's offer is much much better than BU's, I cannot imagine what "language related" programme can give you language education better than translation department.

Translation can be said as the pearl among all language programmes. To be good in translation, you need to at least very good in 2 languages, in Hong Kong, the languages mean English and Chinese. I cannot think of another programme requires you need to be an expert in both languages.

City U just needs you 2 years to complete a translation programme, this proves you are already having good foundation in both languages, this advantage is rare, so don't waste your talent, choose the best one.

I finally understand what is your concern. I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding about the programmes you can choose.

When studying a tertiary programme, fame of the school is just important when comparing same or similar programmes among different school, but it is meaningless when the programmes for comparison are different in study area

For example, when comparing translation programmes between HKU and City U, then fame of school is important since different Us will have their own style to teach a same subject area. However, you cannot say City U's translation is better than BU's film degree.

You should focus on the subject characteristic of the programmes you can choose and find the best for you. However for your case, I cannot find even 1 reason why a casual language programme require 4 years of study is better than a 2 years translation degree

If you finally choose the BU's programme, then the only conclusion is you hate City U so much that you will not enter this university for all cost.

Always CityU. It is a no-brainer decision - shorter time and less money spent (or wasted).
By the way, since you are focused on language, I would like to point out that you have a serious communication issue.
1. Senior is an American term to express the 4th year, not the 3th.

2. BA, based on your question, should be interpreted as Business Administration, not Bachelor of Arts.
