The CUHK Graduate School was founded in 1966. Our current enrolment of postgraduate students exceeds 12,000 and includes non-local students coming from nearly 50 countries around the world. In the 2018-19 academic year, the Graduate School offers through 58 Graduate Divisions over 240 programmes leading to higher degrees, postgraduate diplomas and certificates.
CUHK believes that a world-class university education has to include training in specialized subjects and inculcation of critical powers and cultural sensitivity, qualities that define an educated world citizen of today and tomorrow. General education, a key component of undergraduate studies at CUHK, is built upon a balanced approach to whole-person education that combines Chinese humanistic ideals and western liberal arts contents.
The University offers a number of scholarships, prizes and awards to recognize students' outstanding academic and non-academic performance.
