Our Emphasis on Research

Teaching and research are equally important for the development of any university, and HKSYU spares no effort in advancing both these areas. With the support from various sectors and the University Grants Committee, the University has made great strides forward. Maintaining close ties with local and overseas institutions has also yielded fruitful collaborations in research, with published research reports in the past six years generating widespread impact in academia.
