The Review 2017

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES HKU marked an important milestone in 2016 – 17 with the graduation of the first group of students under the new four-year curriculum. In 2012 all Hong Kong universities expanded their undergraduate education from three years to four, and HKU used this rare opportunity to re-focus its aims and offerings. The balance has shifted to emphasise the needs of students over programmes, and we have been fine-tuning our offerings to ensure students get a top-flight education that also meets the University’s aspirations for internationalisation, innovation and interdisciplinarity, all converging on impact.
