Established in 1937, we have nurtured over 355,000 graduates, many of whom have become leaders in their professional fields, contributing their knowledge and expertise to building Hong Kong's thriving economy and improving the world.
We have the largest student community out of all Hong Kong's publicly-funded universities, with some 32,000 full-time and part-time students on campus annually. In addition, the University’s Student Exchange Programme offers students opportunities to study and experience different cultures at over 220 renowned universities across 28 countries and regions. Every year, around 550 PolyU students go on exchanges while a similar number of inbound exchange students come to the University.
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is committed to education and preparing students to becoming global citizens through quality learning and teaching. We are internationally known for our excellence in professional education and innovative research.
Over 200 programmes, some unique in Hong Kong, are offered by our six faculties and two schools, each with its own unique strengths. We are the only university in Hong Kong whose curriculum mandates a Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component to facilitate work-based learning. Therefore our graduates are highly sought after by employers.
