Over the years, HKBU has remained committed to academic excellence and the development of the whole person, and has gained a reputation as one of Asia’s finest institutions of higher learning.
Teaching & Learning
HKBU offers postgraduate programmes of diverse disciplines fulfilling aspirations of individual students and advancing knowledge through research and scholarship. Our programmes emphasise a global perspective, the development of critical minds, and interactive and participatory learning. We provide students with a remarkable learning environment with different forms of collaborative arrangements both within and outside the University, substantial learning and teaching resources, and a team of dynamic staff committed to excellence. Knowledge is a continuing process of investigation. Partnering with our students, the University keeps moving forward and creating impact to address the local and global challenges.
Research & Development
HKBU is a research-led liberal arts university. We place strong emphasis on the importance of impact, collaboration, inter-disciplinarity and innovation. Our ground-breaking research offers solutions to real-world problems and brings impacts to our society and beyond. In pursing our goal of enhancing research performance, we are making concerted efforts to recruit prominent scholars worldwide, to cultivate actively the niche research areas identified, and to strengthen the research environment. We are also committed to connecting our research with teaching: research keeps teaching alive, and teaching gives research a voice and a platform for application. Integrating these two important roles, the University will continue to thrive by making contributions to different communities at the local and international levels.
Encompassing HKBU’s research strengths, the University has formed institutional research clusters in three key areas to underpin interdisciplinary research and theme-based research, for promoting research excellence and knowledge/technology transfer:
- Creative Media/ Practice
Film, graphics, literary arts, music, visual/ media arts
