The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The  Chinese University of Hong Kong  was founded in 1963 and one of the most respected institutions in South Asia. The campus has scenic areas througout with lakes, pavilions and many outstanding architectural creations. Over 100 kinds of birds are to be seen on the campus at any given time with some monkeys here and there. The campus is located in Shatin. It is truly an honor to serve in this capacity while experiencing one of the most exciting cities in the world. Hong Kong is comprised of many areas or suburbs- as you travel on the MTR (subway) you will see main districts/areas such as Kowloon Tong, Tsim Sha Tsui, Central Hong Kong, etc. Shatin is located in the New Territory north of Kowloon. Located about an hour from the China border on the MTR.

Founded in 1963, we are a university that is as firmly rooted in Chinese culture as it is positioned in modern civilized society. After close to half a century of growth and development, we have become a comprehensive research university, a regional leader with a global reputation.
Since the inception, we have committed ourselves not only to advancing academic research but also upholding the humanistic culture. A university's role is not only to impart knowledge, but also to groom the moral character of our society's future torchbearers. This, we believe, is the essence of a university and the raison d'être of the Chinese University(statement written by President Joseph J.Y Sung of CUHK).

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is 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. CUHK teachers and students hail from all corners of the world. We have over 20,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students, of whom 3,000 come from regions outside Hong Kong. CUHK graduates are connected worldwide through an expansive.
