The unique Discovery-enriched Curriculum and its emphasis on innovation and creativity underlies all aspects of the University's professional education and problem-driven research. Supported by novel learning spaces and facilities in new buildings, the curriculum embodies CityU's Strategic Plan for a new era of growth.
CityU has established itself as one of the most innovative universities in Asia, pioneering research in diverse fields that are of high relevance on pressing issues. The success of its research programmes is reflected in both the amount of funding received and the number of projects funded as well as the quality of its research output.
CityU's proximity to, and close ties with, mainland China, as well as its international partnerships and outlook, make the University ideally positioned to provide a dynamic learning and research environment for students and faculty from all over the world. Both the stature and sheer volume of CityU's relationships with global institutions continue to grow.
