Founded in 1956, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) is widely recognised for its distinctive education and high quality research. HKBU prepares young people with the innovative impulse and creative thinking that the 21st century demands and balances academic excellence with whole person development.
HKBU encompasses seven Faculties/Schools offering a range of taught postgraduate programmes and research postgraduate programmes leading to the awarding of Master’s and doctoral degrees. It prides itself on its dual focus on teaching and research and encourages service to society among its staff and students. Over the years, HKBU has remained committed to academic excellence and whole person development and has gained a reputation as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in Asia.
Teaching and Learning
HKBU offers postgraduate programmes in diverse disciplines, responding to student aspirations and advancing knowledge through research and scholarship. Our programmes focus on a global perspective, the development of critical minds and interactive and participatory learning. We provide students with a remarkable learning environment with different forms of collaborative arrangements both within and outside the University, substantial learning and teaching resources and a team of dynamic staff committed to excellence. Knowledge is an ongoing process of investigation. In partnership with our students, the University keeps moving forward to address local and global challenges.
Research and Development
HKBU is a research-led liberal arts university. We value the importance of impact, collaboration, interdisciplinarity and innovation. Our groundbreaking research offers solutions to real-world problems that affect our society and beyond. As part of our goal of enhancing research performance, we strive to recruit world-leading scholars, actively cultivate niche research areas and strengthen the research environment. We are also committed to connecting our research with teaching: research keeps teaching alive and teaching gives research a voice and a platform for application. Integrating these two important roles, the University continues to thrive by making contributions to different communities at the local and international levels.
Encompassing HKBU’s research strengths, the University has formed institutional research clusters in three key areas to support interdisciplinary research and theme-based research and promote research excellence and knowledge/technology transfer:
- Creative Media/Practice
Film, Graphics, Literary Arts, Music, Visual/Media Arts

Chinese Medicine, Chemistry, Microbiology, Ageing, Physical Education
- Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence
