Continuing Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development

The University of Hong Kong, as a leading international institution of higher learning in Asia, takes great pride in the high quality of its teaching. In addition to undergraduate and research postgraduate education, the University, as a quality educator, naturally takes a keen interest in the educational needs of the community beyond our campus. There is growing demand for lifelong learning as people seek to keep up with new knowledge, upgrade qualifications or pursue new interests. Recognizing the need to continuously empower people with updated knowledge, HKU provides numerous opportunities for continuing professional development.

Taught Postgraduate Programmes

Our Faculties offer a wide range of full-time and part-time taught postgraduate programmes. Details of the individual programmes are given in the Postgraduate Prospectus published every year. Visit the Postgraduate Studies website for more information.

Short Courses

In addition, our Faculties and Departments offer a large number of short courses tailored to meet the specific needs of business, industry or continuing professional development. Academics in professional disciplines also organize many workshops for in-service professionals. Short courses and workshops are publicized on the websites of individual Faculties and Departments.
