Teaching and Learning

City University of Hong Kong is committed to providing quality higher education to its students. We strive to produce a new breed of graduates who will excel in their chosen professions and possess a broad knowledge base to cope with the challenges of a changing world. The educational philosophy of the University emphasises whole person development, and students receive ample opportunities to nurture both the “breadth” (analytical and problem-solving skills, knowledge of the world) and “depth” (subject knowledge and professional skills) of their minds.

The University has a strong team of experienced academic staff with diverse research interests and professional expertise. Supported by top-quality teaching and research facilities, City University provides students with an excellent environment for learning and research. The physical environment, infrastructure and teaching facilities have been adapted from time to time to create an ambiance that encourages intellectual curiosity, social interaction, self-expression and mutual support. Various financial assistance and awards are provided to eligible research degree students to facilitate their research studies.
