Shue Yan was founded in 1971 by Dr. Henry H.L. Hu and Dr. Chung Chi Yung in response to their serious concern over the acute shortage of tertiary places for local secondary school leavers aspiring for university education. Shue Yan's four year degree programmes offer students a well-rounded educational experience that produces graduates who are:• Articulate, open-minded critical thinkers with a passion for lifelong learning and self-improvement;• Committed to appropriate ethical behaviour, based on a strong sense of social responsibility;• Well prepared to apply their specialist knowledge, skills and creativity in their chosen field of employment; and• Ready to apply their global outlook and understanding of Chinese cultural values to support the harmonious development of Hong Kong and China in the 21st century.HKSYU is the only education institution in Hong Kong that has insisted on offering 4-year higher education programmes for more than 30 years. The Chinese meaning of Shue Yan is the cultivation of virtue. Emphasis is laid on the preservation and propagation of traditional Chinese culture and the educational ideals of Confucianism. This makes Shue Yan a very valuable additional to the educational matrix of Hong Kong.
