As a first-class comprehensive research University with a local and international outlook, we produce quality higher degree graduates to serve the increasingly sophisticated needs of society and contribute to human knowledge through research. We have a unique college system and a 137-hectare scenic campus. Most of our teaching staff members are bilingual and recruited from around the world. Our current number of postgraduate students is approximately 12,000, including a substantial portion of international students.

To achieve our mission of accumulating and creating knowledge in different disciplines, we offer over 230 programmes leading to doctoral, research and taught Master’s degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas in eight Faculties: Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Science and Social Science.

Research and Development

In accordance with our vision and mission, CUHK offers a wide range of research programmes in different subject areas and strives to offer all academic staff the opportunity to participate in consultancy and collaborative projects with the industry. CUHK has always put into practice a liberal policy to allow for breadth and depth in research. Research activities at CUHK cover several dimensions: laterally by encompassing all subjects offered at CUHK, vertically by integrating staff research into teaching and longitudinally by ranging from upstream research to midstream development.

The Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services (ORKTS) supports researchers and their collaborators and promotes knowledge development and transfer. ORKTS provides practical services and support to CUHK researchers by facilitating the formulation and execution of research, intellectual property and ethics policies, supporting innovative and entrepreneurial projects by faculty members, researchers and students and the development and licensing of CUHK’s intellectual property.
