Welcome to the website of Hong Kong Chu Hai College (HKCHC)!

Situated on Castle Peak Road, Tuen Mun, and adjacent to the Northern Metropolis and the Great Bay Area, Hong Kong Chu Hai College is a time-honoured self-financing tertiary institution. The College, named Chu Hai University, was established in Guangzhou in 1947 by Mr. CHEN Chi-tang (CHEN Jitang) and Mr. CHIANG Mao-seng (JIANG Maosen) to nurture talents through education. The College was relocated to Hong Kong and named Chu Hai College in 1949.  Having had a history of 75 years and fostered more than 15,000 graduates, some of whom are among fellows of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Engineering, Academia Sinica and other academies. Many of them are renowned professionals in the fields of business, industry, engineering and education in the UK, Europe, the United States and Canada.

Hong Kong Chu Hai College has garnered high praise from the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) since 2003. It has successfully attained institutional accreditation as well as multiple programme accreditations. Currently, the college holds seven Programme Area Assessment (PAA) qualifications. The college is composed of three main faculties: the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Faculty of Business and the Sino-Belt and Road Research Institute.

The College provides a diverse range of 14 undergraduate programmes. Notably, the programmes offered by the Department of Architecture hold prestigious professional accreditations from the Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB), HKSAR, placing them on par with those offered by The University of Hong Kong and The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Additionally, the programme offered by the Department of Accounting and Banking is recognized by both the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Furthermore, programmes in Civil Engineering, Journalism and Communication, Chinese Literature, and One Belt One Road are highly regarded within their respective industries.

The College also provides a comprehensive selection of 16 taught postgraduate degrees that encompass a diverse array of study areas. These include Chinese Studies, South China History and Culture, Applied Buddhist Studies, Global Communication, Applied Artificial Intelligence, Cultural Heritage, Arts Tech and Digital Communication, Architecture, MBA, Applied Finance, Civil Engineering, and International Business Management and Relations for Belt and Road Countries. This wide range of offerings ensures that students have ample opportunities to pursue their academic and professional interests in various fields.

Hong Kong Chu Hai College is currently embarking on an exciting new journey towards a significant milestone. With a steadfast commitment to nurturing individuals who embody Chinese devotion, professional competence, social responsibility, and global vision, the College is poised to lead the way. Building upon this solid foundation, I am eager to spearhead the transformation of Hong Kong Chu Hai College into an applied comprehensive private university. Through collaborative and concerted efforts, we aim to reimagine and further develop the institution, paving the way for an even more remarkable future.
