The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) is a publicly-funded tertiary university dedicated to the advancement of teaching and learning, through a diverse offering of academic and research programmes on teacher education and complementary social sciences and humanities disciplines. 


The EdUHK aims to be a leading university in the Asia Pacific region, focusing on Education and complementary disciplines, and recognised for our excellence in nurturing competent and caring professionals and the impact of our scholarship.


Education creates knowledge, understanding and the capacity to transform life and society. The primary mission of EdUHK is to promote and support the strategic development of teacher education in Hong Kong, by preparing quality educators, supporting them in their lifelong learning, and leading in education innovation and reform.

We seek to provide a multidisciplinary learning and research environment beyond Education that is conducive to the pursuit of knowledge, free thinking and free speech, advocacy in policy and practice, and the promotion of collaboration and diversity. We prepare our students to become competent professionals who can integrate theory and practice, and who are intellectually active, socially caring, and globally aware. Our research will contribute to the advancement of knowledge, scholarship and innovation, with a sustainable impact on social progress and human betterment.


EdUHK is fully committed to its strategic objective of promoting a teaching, learning and research environment in which resources and services are consolidated and enhanced in order to provide students and staff with the necessary backup for academic excellence and a culture of life-long learning.

Apart from the central support of the Library, information technology and educational technology services for all students and staff, learning Centres specialising in language in education, citizenship education, humanities and social services as well as special needs and inclusive education have also been set up to provide services, share resources and promote good practices.

Our R&D Philosophy

As the city’s largest teacher education university, EdUHK contributes to innovation and excellence in education. We do this through applied research that creates inspiring and innovative knowledge with strong academic, professional, social and policy impacts on education and the wider community.

Our research and development work emphasises not only academic rigor and conceptual originality but also social and professional relevance. In our philosophy, research excellence is a combination of scholarship, professionalism and service through knowledge transfer and application. Given the rapid development of education in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and across the Asia-Pacific, such an emphasis by EdUHK is both timely and essential.
