THE (Times Higher Education) - - OPINION -

As a lead­ing de­sign in­sti­tu­tion, Hong Kong De­sign In­sti­tute (HKDI) pro­vides qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion to cul­ti­vate knowl­edge, pro­fes­sion­al­ism and new tal­ents who un­der­pin the cre­ative in­dus­tries in Hong Kong. HKDI adopts a “think-and-do” ap­proach through con­tem­po­rary cur­ricu­lum and ac­tive col­lab­o­ra­tions with in­dus­try. With many years of ex­pe­ri­ence in de­sign ed­u­ca­tion, HKDI brings to­gether the strengths of four aca­demic de­part­ments, namely Ar­chi­tec­ture, In­te­rior and Prod­uct De­sign, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion De­sign and Dig­i­tal Me­dia, De­sign Foun­da­tion Stud­ies and Fash­ion and Im­age De­sign, to of­fer over 20 pro­grammes that cover a wide spec­trum of the de­sign dis­ci­pline. Stu­dents are of­fered a three-year univer­sity de­gree path­way to progress from Higher Diploma to Bach­e­lor’s De­gree, con­ferred by rep­utable uni­ver­si­ties in the UK.

To pro­mote cul­tural and knowl­edge ex­change, HKDI has es­tab­lished col­lab­o­ra­tive agree­ments with over 40 de­sign schools world­wide, which in­clude China Cen­tral Academy of Fine Arts, Bei­jing Film Academy and Ts­inghua Univer­sity in China; Bunka Gakuen Univer­sity in Ja­pan; ECAL, HEAD-Genève and Zurich Univer­sity of the Arts in Switzer­land; Do­mus Academy, Po­litec­nico di Mi­lano and Isti­tuto Marangoni in Italy; The New School (Par­sons) in the US; Univer­sity of West­min­ster and Univer­sity for the Cre­ative Arts in the UK, to name a few.
