About CUHK

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has over 4,000 non-local undergraduate, postgraduate and exchange students.

Every year, the University attracts an increasing number of non-local undergraduates to campus, owing not only  to the growing global interest in China – its history, culture, society and economic development – but also to an enduring fascination with Hong Kong, a vibrant metropolis where East meets West.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong takes great pride in the quality of education it offers. At CUHK, students will enjoy a comprehensive learning experience on the doorstep of one of the world’s oldest civilizations and fastest growing economies. Students will gain new insights into the language and culture of China, and into the dynamism of Hong Kong as an international business and financial centre. The University is fully committed to excellence in teaching and is widely recognised for its many accomplishments in research. It has also forged academic links with many prestigious institutions of higher learning around the world.

Among all Hong Kong universities, CUHK is the only one that offers a college experience. CUHK has nine constituent colleges that offer students a whole-person education. Students will benefit from pastoral care and from the opportunities to interact closely with their teachers and peers.

CUHK’s undergraduate curriculum provides students with the flexibility to experience education in its broadest sense. This means students can pursue studies in their discipline of choice, expand their horizon through exploring General Education and other subjects, and take up opportunities for overseas exchange in a range of world-class institutions, internship in a workplace locally or abroad, as well as community and social service. It helps students grow intellectually, develop appropriate skills and values, and prepares them for further studies or a career in an ever-changing environment.

The University believes in “education without borders”, and is home to a diverse campus community with faculty and students that hail from some 50 countries and regions. Here students will learn to live and work in harmony with those who might be very different from them.  They will develop new ways of looking at things and handling problems and acquire a cosmopolitan outlook.
