Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies
Postgraduate education facilitates the advancement of knowledge and provides high-level academic education and professional training to cater for the society’s needs. To provide a better focus for the further development of its postgraduate programmes, the University established the School of Graduate Studies in 1994. The School offers a wide spectrum of high quality programmes and student activities. Both taught and research programmes are favourably received by students and have earned high acclaim from the community.
MPhil and PhD programmes are offered in all Colleges and Schools* covering a wide range of strategic areas to reflect the University’s strengths and to suit individuals’ research interests. The School offers studentship, a number of scholarships, conference grant and other financial assistance to students so that they can engage in more academic exchange activities which are beneficial and related to their research studies. Through collaboration with scholars in different regions, students can bring their research skills to new heights.
The School received generous donation from Dr Chow Yei Ching, and was named the “Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies” in 2006. For more information about the School, please visit our website http://www.cityu.edu.hk/sgs/ .
