OUHK started out as a provider of distance education in 1989. We have
since evolved from offering high quality and flexible higher education
opportunities to adults to providing a broad spectrum of programmes from
undergraduate to doctoral level for the wider community. In order to
increase opportunities for the large number of school leavers and
associate degree holders to attain a bachelor’s degree, we added in
full-time face-to-face programmes in 2001, and we have started admitting
students from the mainland China soon afterward.
Education is the most important driver for the progress of our society.
The OUHK has always kept its fingers firmly on the pulse of learners’
needs, and met them with a range of programmes in various modes,
disciplines and localities. Our four Schools and one Institute currently
offer more than 190 programmes and over 600 courses to nearly 20,000
students each year. As our technological build-up matures, we are
reaching out to the international community with online presentations.
The completion of the campus extension project has further strengthened
our capacity for future development and enhanced our student support.
The joint efforts of colleagues, students and alumni, as well as the
generous support of friends in the community have turned the project
into a resounding success. My sincere gratitude and appreciation goes to
all of you for your tremendous contributions. Together we have created
an improved learning environment for our students and teachers, who can
now enjoy a more vibrant and robust campus life.
Looking ahead, the University will continue to flourish, and cross new
milestones in pursuit of excellence, steadfastly towards the objective
of widening access, and creating a realm of education equity for our
