The University of Hong Kong is today ranked amongst the most respected comprehensive research-led universities in the world, ranked as the 26th best university in the world (according to the QS World University Rankings 2013).

In Hong Kong, the University leads the way in terms of funding and awards, which means you can experience exceptional support and learning facilities. You’ll find the largest international student population in Hong Kong here.

English as the medium of instruction, countless exchange, internship and other experiential learning opportunities, plus the location of its campus near to the dynamic business and entertainment heart of Hong Kong, are among many factors that attract tens of thousands of applicants each year and the highest admissions standards in the territory. HKU alumni continue to be the most preferred by employers here, as indicated by a virtually 100% employment rate for every one of the last seven consecutive years (99.8% Graduate Employment Rate, CEDARS, HKU, 2013).
