The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) places quality learning and teaching at the forefront of its activities. We are committed to nurturing outstanding and caring educators and professionals who contribute constructively to sustainable social and economic development in Hong Kong and beyond.
The Quality Assurance Council Audit Report findings in 2017 confirmed the University’s commitment as a higher education institution and the mechanisms it has put in place to create a quality culture. The positive Report reinforces the University’s commitment to ensuring the quality of its learning and teaching and the enrichment of student learning experience. Building on the positive outcome, the University continues its efforts at various fronts and some examples are:
- to maintain quality and academic standards as evident in effective implementation of enhancement measures on programme outcomes relating to Generic Intended Learning Outcomes, Programme Outcomes Assessment, etc.;
- to enhance the quality of student learning through the comprehensive review of the undergraduate curriculum and support to students’ whole person development with a new non-formal learning strategy and providing measures to facilitate student non-local learning experience to foster internationalisation; and
- to strive for quality learning and teaching by enhancing the use of technology in promoting effective learning such as the use of e-Portfolio, continuing to sharpen the e-learning policy and practices, and providing various support for staff professional enrichment and sharing of good practices.
All these witness the University’s continuous efforts in promoting, supporting and sustaining a quality culture with a focus on student learning.
This website provides comprehensive information on learning and teaching at the University. Students are encouraged to explore the many opportunities available in both formal and non-formal learning to achieve academic and personal goals. The website also offers a platform for the EdUHK community to share ideas and strategies for learning and teaching. We welcome your views, suggestions and contributions which will be important to the advancement of the University.

The Education University of Hong Kong believes that international and local collaboration, together with school partnership and exchange contribute significantly to the university’s growth as a centre of quality education and teacher education recognised both in Hong Kong and overseas.
On the international platform, the University’s interaction with its global network of collaborative partners in conferences and collaborative ventures offer us international benchmarks for excellence in teacher education. In turn, the University demonstrates leadership role by reaching out and sharing our experiences with the education community throughout the region and further afield. By forging links with schools and institutions internationally and locally, through exchange schemes for world-class scholars and Centres, the University has been engaged in collaborative research and development projects.
In the local education arena, the dynamic relationship with kindergartens and schools enables the University to produce graduates who gain quality experience in the field. Classrooms give student teachers the chance to practise what they have learned and develop their skills. They also give researchers the opportunity to observe and develop strategies that address Hong Kong’s changing educational environment.
By undertaking collaborative projects and enhancing school partnership activities, the University will
- establish a learning environment of cultural and linguistic diversity in support of the development of international perspectives;
- provide a curriculum framework that shapes learning as a response to increasing globalisation and cross-cultural communication;
- strengthen links with regional and international partners and take on a leadership role in research and pedagogy; and
- promote internationalisation and encourage students’ integration into local, regional and overseas multicultural communities.
