Overview

Established in 1994 by the merger of five teacher training colleges, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) is a publicly-funded tertiary institution dedicated to the advancement of teaching and learning, through a diverse offering of academic and research programmes in teacher education and complementary social sciences and humanities disciplines. The Education University of Hong Kong is situated in Hong Kong on China’s southern coast and in the heart of Asia, occupying a unique position within the city’s renowned tertiary sector.

With more than 400 academic and teaching staff, EdUHK has the largest critical mass of education experts in education and related discipline areas in Hong Kong, and one of the largest in the region. More than 97% of the academic staff members possess doctoral qualifications.

Currently, 84% of Hong Kong’s primary school teachers and 30% of secondary school teachers are graduates of EdUHK or its predecessor colleges of education. EdUHK is a pioneer in early childhood education and has trained, over the years, nearly 80% of Hong Kong’s kindergarten teachers. EdUHK emphasizes on the provision of a complete learning experience.

The Institute features three Institute-level research centres and 12 Faculty-level research, professional development and resources centres, covering various areas of expertise in Education, Social Sciences and Humanities. At the international level, the Institute hosts a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Chair in Technical and Vocational Education and Training and Lifelong Learning. Through this UNESCO Chair, EdUHK is playing an active role in regional development and social progress. EdUHK also houses a UNESCO Observatory for Research in Local Cultures and Creativity in Education.

Under the “Education-plus” vision adopted across the Institute since 2009, EdUHK is transforming itself into a leading education-focused, research-strong and multi-disciplinary institution for the Asia Pacific region.

The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) offered me an admission and scholarship to study the Global and Environmental Studies. The professors and the staffs in HKIEd have been so warm and helpful for me that I think I have got a new great family away from my home. From the beginning of my first semester, the International Office (IO) of HKIEd has helped me adapt well to the new exotic environment. IO arranged a series of trips and activities to enjoy together with my fellow international students and local student buddies. It enhanced my knowledge and understanding on the local Hong Kong culture and diverse groups of people. Making new friends was a really effective way of adapting and enjoying the new environment. Besides, I enjoy the hall-life in HKIEd. The hall arranged many activities for the hall residents to participate so we know each other well. Studying in Hong Kong actually is a turning point of my life. It has given me valuable university life, international exposure and networks. show less

The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) is a wonderful platform for me in getting a high standard knowledge, improving my personal skills and raising self-awareness of my talents, abilities and limitations. This is a place where I live and study with students from different social, cultural and religious backgrounds. Living in diverse society helps me to understand that even though students are so different from each other, they have a lot in common. Moreover, I am getting more experienced in achieving mutual respectand strengtheningrelationships with others. Besides, I profoundly appreciate all efforts that the Institute spends for student’s development by creating different social, educational and cultural activities that are by all means necessary in nurturing well-educated citizens who will establish better future of Hong Kong and the world. show less
