Wholeperson education in a dynamic and caring environment
Hong Kong Baptist University is a publicly funded research-intensive liberal arts university in Hong Kong delivering our distinctive education that prepares young people with the innovative impulse and creative thinking that the 21st century demands. We balance academic excellence with the development of the whole person.
Founded in 1956 and became a publicly funded university in 1994, the University’s main campuses are located at the heart of Hong Kong and we also have an extra-territorial campus in Zhuhai in Guangdong Province - the United International College - which is jointly established with Beijing Normal University. It is the first full-scale cooperation in higher education between Mainland China and Hong Kong.
The university's programmes have won international recognition. The School of Business gained accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Associations of MBAs (AMBA), as well as European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development. The School of Communication was named one of the best journalism and media schools for Asian students by the website Asian Correspondent.
Situated in the heart of the city, the university stretches across five campuses that offer an inspiring teaching, research and learning environment.
The university has state-of-the-art facilities, well-equipped laboratories and research infrastructure, and learning commons that offer students a dynamic study environment.
HKBU’s world-class libraries include the seven-floor main library, the Dr Stephen Riady Chinese Medicine Library and the European Documentation Centre. The university also provides well-rounded sports facilities that encompass two multipurpose gymnasiums; a swimming pool; a full-size outdoor athletics stadium and soccer pitch, tennis and squash courts; and two multipurpose sports halls for ball and racquet games.
HKBU has created an internationalised campus environment. Its academic staff members come from over 20 countries and regions, and pioneering programmes such as the Pulitzer Prize Winners Workshop, the International Writers Workshop, the Consul-General-in-Residence Programme and the European Union Academic Programme, bring distinguished experts from around the world to the university, adding to the globalised campus experience.
HKBU is committed to building a sustainable low-carbon campus and fostering an environmentally conscious culture within the university community.
