Qual­ity learn­ing and teach­ing

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

THE Hong Kong Polytech­nic Univer­sity (PolyU) is com­mit­ted to ed­u­ca­tion and pre­par­ing stu­dents to be­com­ing global cit­i­zens through qual­ity learn­ing and teach­ing.

It is in­ter­na­tion­ally known for ex­cel­lence in in­no­va­tive re­search and unique pro­grammes.

Es­tab­lished in 1937, PolyU has groomed over 330,000 grad­u­ates, many of whom have be­come lead­ers in their pro­fes­sional fields, con­tribut­ing their knowl­edge and ex­per­tise to build­ing Hong Kong’s thriv­ing econ­omy.

The cam­pus is lo­cated right in the heart of Hong Kong with easy ac­cess to key dis­tricts and ma­jor at­trac­tions. PolyU has the largest stu­dent com­mu­nity out of all Hong Kong’s pub­licly funded uni­ver­si­ties, with over 1,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from 50 coun­tries on cam­pus an­nu­ally.

More than 200 pro­grammes, some unique in Hong Kong, are of­fered by its six fac­ul­ties and two schools, each with its own unique strengths. They are the only univer­sity in Hong Kong whose cur­ricu­lum man­dates a Work-In­te­grated Ed­u­ca­tion (WIE) com­po­nent to fa­cil­i­tate work-based learn­ing.

PolyU of­fers a wide range of pro­grammes, from higher diplo­mas to doctoral de­grees. All of its pro­grammes are fully ac­cred­ited with their key strengths be­ing their prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tion and pro­fes­sional rel­e­vance to the in­dus­tries.

Hong Kong is one of the most dy­namic cities in the world. Nev­er­the­less, the city has some­thing for ev­ery­one, from the most eco­nom­i­cal op­tions to ex­treme ex­trav­a­gance. As a stu­dent, you can also en­joy a vast range of dis­counted of­fers, from trans­porta­tion to dif­fer­ent kinds of en­ter­tain­ment.

Tu­ition fees for a full-time Bach­e­lor’s De­gree pro­gramme per aca­demic year is ap­prox­i­mately RM45,000.

Schol­ar­ships up to ap­prox­i­mately RM61,000 are awarded to stu­dents with out­stand­ing aca­demic mer­its as well as those with other non-aca­demic achieve­ments.

Get­ting around Hong Kong is easy. The well-de­vel­oped pub­lic trans­porta­tion net­work and bilin­gual sig­nage en­sure quick, con­ve­nient and easy ac­cess to al­most any­where in the city.

All in­ter­na­tional stu­dents will be of­fered three years of guar­an­teed ac­com­mo­da­tion at PolyU’s Stu­dent Halls of Res­i­dence. It is within walk­ing dis­tance from the cam­pus, with a monthly rental of about RM550 for a shared room (dou­ble oc­cu­pancy in four-per­son-suite).

De­pend­ing on pref­er­ence and bud­get, some might pre­fer to opt for other forms of univer­sity-man­aged ac­com­mo­da­tion; in­clud­ing pri­vate premises near the cam­pus or ar­range for PolyU’s ac­com­mo­da­tion off-cam­pus.
