Message from the President

As the President of the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), I am extremely pleased to welcome you to the University.

Established in 1989 by the Hong Kong Government, OUHK upholds our mission of Education for All which allows us to gain support from the community and government. Each year charitable foundations and corporate benefactors offer significant amount of grants and donations, enabling us to become a self-financed higher education institution for teaching and research. Today we have 9,600 undergraduate students, 670 postgraduate students and about 9,000 part-time (distance learning and e-learning) students.

Our postgraduate programmes cover a wide range of disciplines with a rich choice of subjects. To meet the needs of individual students and of society, we also offer these programmes at Master, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate levels.

OUHK degrees and other qualifications are equal to those of all other universities established by the Hong Kong Government, and are recognized both in Hong Kong and overseas for employment and higher studies purposes, as well as respected by employers. Many of our programmes are recognized by professional bodies.

The OUHK has multiple campuses, including the Main Campus and Jockey Club Campus in Ho Man Tin and the Kwai Hing Campus. You will find a wide range of resources, space for individual and group study, laboratories and other student facilities at the University.

To enrich the campus life of students, we provide student support services, including study tours, overseas and local internships, student exchange programmes, scholarships and financial assistance, support for student activities and societies, career services, counselling services, etc.

In short, now is a great time to study at the OUHK. It offers you a range of programmes and modes of study that will allow you to stay competitive in the international and local marketplaces.

I wish you every success in your endeavours!
