Academic Supporting Units
The University emphasizes its commitment to excellence in teaching and research and dedication to preparing our graduates for their future careers through a personalised, transformative campus learning experience. We strive to develop a service-oriented and outcomes-focused culture that enable students to cultivate a whole, balanced personality including moral character and to realize their full potential.
The University is currently operating five academic support units that complement its pedagogic activities: Teaching and Learning Office, Industrial Attachment Office, International Unit, Library, and Language Centre.
As a teaching-led, research active university, the University is dedicated to pursue effective teaching and learning that is informed by empirical research, and enhanced by modern technology. The synergy among digitalization, internationalization, and Confucian educational ideals lay the foundations for the whole-person education in HKSYU. We aim to create an active and open environment that enables instructors and learners to contribute and develop their diversifying talents. To ensure that the highest-quality education is provided for our students, the Teaching and Learning Development Office (TLDO) is set up to support continuous improvement of pedagogical strategies, application of educational technologies and interdisciplinary collaboration in teaching and learning.

The Industrial Attachment Office was established in 2018 to coordinate the provision of workplace-integrated learning opportunities for students. It serves and supports all HKSYU undergraduate students with the provision of industrial attachments for placements, internships, practicums, service learning, enterprise learning, and related workplace training that are discipline-specific and credit-bearing as part of all undergraduate programmes. In order to equip students with self-reliance and generic competences to realise their career goals, the office will provide students with comprehensive pre and post-attachment supports in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs as well as working closely with academic departments to advance workplace-integrated learning with quality industrial attachments that make a difference to students’ learning experience.
