CityU offers professional education that prepares its students for the challenges and exciting opportunities opening up in Hong Kong, the Asia-Pacific region and throughout the world in business, science and engineering, energy and environment, law, creative media and social sciences. Through its extensive links with relevant industries, CityU provides real-life opportunities for students to work with and learn from professionals in the workplace, from bachelor degrees and postgraduate studies to associate degrees and continuing education.
At CityU, we strive to nurture well-rounded graduates who are competent professionals, critical thinkers and life-long learners equipped to cope with a globalised work environment and positioned to capitalise on our extensive links to mainland China and beyond. Our approach to education is heavily influenced by the philosophy of “whole-person development”, a contemporary theory about learning and development that strongly resembles traditional Chinese educational philosophy. Subject to particular focus are the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic elements of education, coupled with the special attention paid to the emotional and career development aspects typical to Western educational philosophies.
Our teachers are recruited from around the world, each an expert in their profession. Employing interactive, IT-based teaching methodologies, students acquire a first-rate grounding in their chosen subjects and the life-long learning skills needed for the real world.
CityU offers state-of-the-art learning, teaching and research facilities in a high-technology environment to create an ambiance that encourages intellectual curiosity, social interaction, self-expression and mutual support.
CityU has achieved phenomenal growth since its establishment as a University in 1994. To date, it has a student population of more than 20,000 enrolled in more than 130 programmes at the associate degree, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
