At CityU, we strive to nurture well-rounded graduates, who are competent professionals, critical thinkers and life-long learners equipped to cope with a globalised work environment and positioned to capitalise on our extensive links to mainland China. Our approach to education is heavily influenced by the philosophy of “whole-person development”, a contemporary theory about learning and development that strongly resembles traditional Chinese educational philosophy. Subject to particular focus are the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic elements of education, coupled with the special attention paid to the emotional and career development aspects typical to Western educational philosophies.
Our teachers are recruited from around the world, each an expert in their profession. Employing interactive, IT-based teaching methodologies, students acquire a first-rate grounding in their chosen subjects and the life-long learning skills needed for the real world.
