Hong Kong
Hong Kong, special administrative region of China, located to the east of the Pearl River (Zhu Jiang) estuary on the south coast of China. The region is bordered by Guangdong province to the north and the South China Sea to the east, south, and west. It consists of Hong Kong Island, originally ceded by China to Great Britain in 1842, the southern part of the Kowloon Peninsula and Stonecutters (Ngong Shuen) Island (now joined to the mainland), ceded in 1860, and the New Territories, which include the mainland area lying largely to the north, together with 230 large and small offshore islands—all of which were leased from China for 99 years from 1898 to 1997. The Chinese-British joint declaration signed on December 19, 1984, paved the way for the entire territory to be returned to China, which occurred July 1, 1997.

Hong Kong Metropolitan University, Hong Kong
Founded in 1989, we now become a modern comprehensive university. We tailor our professional programmes to adapt to market trends and meet industry needs, thus providing our students with quality professional education and clear career paths. Our signature programmes include areas in high demand, such as nursing, physiotherapy, medical laboratory technology, building services engineering, surveying, creative arts, early childhood education, business management and corporate governance. Our efforts and achievements in providing professional education are evidenced by the largest share in the number of subsidised places under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP), funded by the Hong Kong SAR Government.Our faculty and staff ensure that our students have a solid academic foundation and equip them with essential work skills and capabilities through internships, global immersion programmes, and collaborative initiatives with our business and industry partners. HKMU launched a Global Faculty Recruitment Campaign to recruit quality academics from all over the world and a Central Faculty Fund to provide additional funding to attract such talent. Also available is the Faculty Advancement Fund for faculty members to undertake scholarly activities locally or overseas for up to 12 months. HKMU aims to be a faculty-driven, student-centred university in support of innovative teaching and learning, strategic research, and stakeholder outreach to provide maximum benefit to our communities.
