City University of Hong Kong

With an emphasis on professional education and research, CityU produces graduates with the ability to anticipate and precipitate change in a rapidly-evolving, globalised world.

In recent years, CityU has performed strongly in university rankings and is currently among the top 10 in Asia and the top 100 in the world. It is a fast-growing institution with undergraduate and postgraduate students and academic staff in business, creative media, data science, energy and environment, engineering, humanities and social sciences, law, science, and veterinary medicine and life sciences.

Our curriculum emphasises innovation and creativity, and this principle underlies all aspects of the University’s professional education and problem-driven research. Supported by novel learning spaces and facilities in new buildings, the curriculum embodies CityU’s Strategic Plan for a new era of growth.

CityU has established itself as one of the most innovative universities in Asia, pioneering research in diverse fields that are of high relevance on pressing issues. The success of its research programmes is reflected in both the amount of funding received and the number of projects funded as well as the quality of its research output.

CityU’s proximity to, and close ties with, mainland China, as well as its international partnerships and outlook, make the University ideally positioned to provide a dynamic learning and research environment for students and faculty from all over the world. Both the stature and sheer volume of CityU’s relationships with global institutions continue to grow.
