The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was founded in 1963 as a forward-looking comprehensive research university with a global vision and a mission to combine tradition with modernity, and to bring together China and the West. The education experience here is distinguished by a flexible credit unit system and bilingualism. There are general education courses to broaden students’ perspectives and develop in them the ability to face the challenges of contemporary society. Our eight Faculties, including Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Business Administration, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Social Science, offer a wide array of excellent undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to a total of 28,000 students. Of all Hong Kong universities, CUHK is the only one that offers a college experience. The nine colleges offer college programmes and activities that complement the formal curricula by delivering whole-person education and pastoral care. The college system also encourages intimate interaction among teachers, students and alumni. In terms of research, CUHK identified four major research areas in our five-year strategic plan. These include China Studies, Translational Biomedicine, Information and Automatic Technology and Environment and Sustainability. Hong Kong’s University Grants Committee (UGC) provides preferential grant funding to the local tertiary institutions to conduct research into 18 selected Areas of Excellence (AoEs). Seven of these AoEs are being led by researchers from CUHK. The University houses five state key laboratories which are entrusted by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China to produce research of international quality. Our beautiful 137.3-hectare campus overlooking Tolo Harbour is the largest and greenest in Hong Kong. (http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/)
