Research is the cornerstone of the University’s academic development.  With the support of the Mr. Kwok Yat Wai and Madam Kwok Chung Bo Fun Graduate School Development Fund, the Graduate School is able to allocate increasing resources to attracting outstanding students from throughout the world to pursue their postgraduate studies at HKBU.  Furthermore, the School can subsidise postgraduate students who undertake overseas studies and placements so as to broaden their horizons, enhance their learning capability and prepare them to become highly competent researchers with an international competitive edge so they can fully contribute to the community.

Mr. Andy Lee Vice-President (Administration) and Secretary of HKBU

During the past few years, HKBU has embarked on a far-reaching Campus Master Plan designed to expand and rejuvenate campus facilities as well as to optimise campus spaces to cater for the needs of the University’s sustainable development.  We are deeply grateful to our benefactors whose generous contributions have made the implementation of the Plan possible, thereby providing our students and faculty members with a modern and conducive environment for interactive teaching, learning and research.

Under the leadership of HKBU, the project entitled the “Strategic Plan for Intellectual Asset Protection of Traditional Chinese Medicine” consolidates the research strengths of top-tier Chinese medicine research institutes in Hong Kong and Mainland China in order to conduct advanced research into the application of Chinese medicine in treating inflammation, cancer and viral diseases as well as the technologies for processing Chinese medicines.  Thanks to the support of Pecan Foundation Limited, the project has made impressive progress with an increasing number of patent applications filed, which in turn has fostered the development of modernised Chinese medicines and related products.  The project preserves the quintessence of traditional Chinese medicine, and at the same time promotes the modernisation and internationalisation of the industry. 

Professor Huang Yu Associate Vice-President and Dean of Communication of HKBU

The School of Communication strives to nurture all-round communication professionals for the betterment of the community not just in Hong Kong, but also in Mainland China and the world at large.  With the generous support of Lam Woo Foundation Limited, the School has successfully established the Senior Reporters-in-Residence Scheme.  Under the Scheme, veteran journalists from Hong Kong and around the world such as winners of the Pulitzer Prize or members of the HKBU-Society of Publishers In Asia are brought together on the HKBU Campus annually to share their views and inspire our students and academics with their insightful wisdom.  The Scheme has enriched the contents and perspectives of journalism education in Hong Kong, thereby fostering the sustainable development of the profession.
