ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Hong Kong is one of the world's most vibrant cities; a cultural crossroads where East and West meet. Though very much an open society informed by Western traditions, Hong Kong still has its feet firmly planted in the Chinese cultural traditions.
Hong Kong is at the heart of Asia, and just a short hop by air takes you to many of the region's countries, including Taiwan, Thailand, The Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, and Viet Nam. China, of course, is also at your doorstep.Hong Kong is compact enough that most residents use an excellent transportation network of buses, taxis, and a subway.
 
Hong Kong Baptist University is one of Asia's oldest universities with a Christian heritage. Founded in 1956, it is the second oldest institution of higher education in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Baptist University has more than 5000 undergraduate and 2000 postgraduate and research students. The university has 28 departments in three faculties: Arts, Science, and Social Sciences; and three schools: Business, Chinese Medicine, and Communication.
