The University of Hong Kong, which was founded in 1847, is one of the top ranking public and private universities in China. It is continuing to monitor closely how its position will impact future university applications from the Chinese population. Like most top-ranking Chinese universities, the University of Hong Kong is widely recognized in the world as a leading institution of higher education. In fact, many people from the United Kingdom, Canada and other countries wish to enroll at the University of Hong Kong, but it does admit a limited number of foreign students.
The University of Hong Kong has a simple, but effective academic admissions policy. It adheres to the same ‘one-term’ system of teaching and study that has been used for the last hundred years, with no major break or expansion required. The University has maintained a similar admissions policy, which has helped it maintain its high ranking among Chinese universities. The University’s acceptance policy also allows degree seekers from outside the UK by virtue of its partnership with the University of Hong Kong. This has led to a large number of non-academic course opportunities for students.
There are two different bodies at the University of Hong Kong, which regulate the activities of the University and the management thereof. The Management and Policy Committee, which are responsible for approving all policies and procedures, and the Executive Council, which consists of the cabinet members of the University, have authority to approve all decisions affecting the University. The academic board consists of twenty-four members, who are nominated by the outgoing President of Hong Kong, K Wua-lai, and have to be approved by a majority vote of the Executive Council. The University has a policy of maintaining a free-market approach to education, and all fees are subject to negotiation between the University and the bargaining agents for undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students.
The University has branches in the main areas of medicine, law and business. There are three major departments of the University of Hong Kong, namely the departments of Surgery and Public Health, College of Education, and the Graduate Studies Department. The faculty and student enrollment in these departments is quite diverse, and the University also has branch offices in China and Japan. The University does not have any connection whatsoever with China University, the only institution of higher learning in China that uses the name “Universities” in its name.
The University of Hong Kong is currently ranked first for research output, according to the latest Times Higher Education survey. The ranking is based on the output and impact factor of the faculty, according to the research conducted by the researchers. A high impact factor indicates an effective teaching system, high faculty quality and excellent facilities. The researchers were impressed by the teaching methods of the University and felt that the teaching staffs are well qualified for their teaching responsibilities. Most employees at the University are from the younger generation of Hong Kong people. The University boasts a high quality and quantity of alumni who have gone on to do successful business careers and serve in the government.
The University of Hong Kong is the oldest tertiary institution of higher education in the whole of China. The history of the establishment can be traced back to the nineteenth century, and the first professor of surgery was born in the University. Today, Hong Kong plays a key role in the Chinese healthcare sector.
In the recent years, the University has made efforts to expand its overseas faculty and draw more international academic experts and researchers to study in its territories. This effort has been rewarded with highly experienced and highly paid foreign faculty members, who now serve as the academic advisers and conference organizers for the academic department. On top of this, the University offers an opportunity for exchange students to pursue an MBA program within the University. This MBA program is one of the most popular courses for foreign students. This MBA program is especially popular among Chinese national students who wish to enhance their knowledge of international business and earn MBA degrees from world-class universities such as those at the University of Hong Kong.
It is no longer surprising that the University of Hong Kong is a popular choice among China scholars who are looking to advance their career and study abroad at highly regarded universities. As China continues to emerge as the biggest economic and political power in the world, and as the University of Hong Kong prepares to expand its wings internationally, it is expected that the influence of the Chinese alumni will continue to spread throughout the world. With the growing prominence of the University of Hong Kong in the field of diplomacy, and the increasing numbers of academic and employment opportunities offered by the University for Chinese students, the future of China and the Chinese people are looking bright.
