About Chinese University of Hong Kong
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was established in 1963 and is home to 16,000 students. The university has seven faculties - Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Medicine, Science, and Social Science. The faculty excels in both teaching and research, and counts Nobel Laureates such as Professor Yang Chen Ning (Physics) & Professor Sir James A. Mirrlees (Economics) among its ranks.
Hong Kong (pop. 7 million) offers inspiring views of Tolo Harbor with picturesque hills as the backdrop. The city is a wonderful mix of Western and Chinese cultures and is truly a global city: from the many multinational corporations headquartered here to the traditional street markets of Mong Kok and Yau Ma Tei. Students will find an exciting urban experience and a gateway to mainland China and other Asian countries.
