Established in 1911, the University of Hong Kong is the territory's oldest institute of higher learning. Over the past century, the University has committed itself to creating knowledge, providing education, and serving society. It has grown with Hong Kong and generations of our graduates have helped shape the city from which the university takes its name. Today, HKU is internationally recognized as a research-led comprehensive university, with frontier research endeavours and scholarly achievements that have won it worldwide acclaim. At HKU, the spirit of engagement is very important. From guiding and mentoring our students to supporting and involving our researchers, from listening to and working with the community at large to sharing our expertise and experience with society and the world, we are committed to cooperation and collaboration. These are the qualities that make us strong. So, regardless of whether you are getting in touch with us from just down the road or from the other side of the world, whether you are a prospective student or a current one, a researcher, faculty member or non-academic staff, alumni member, parent, visitor or friend.
