Motto and Vision & Mission


Transcendence through Erudition and Renewal

Our History

Established by the Hong Kong Government in 1989 as a provider of distance education, HKMU began offering full-time programmes in 2001. Over the years we have grown into a leader in open and flexible education in the Asia Pacific region, and our full-time face-to-face programmes for qualified secondary school leavers are on par with other established universities across Hong Kong. HKMU today is a young, dynamic, full-fledged university.

Our Vision

To be a leader in providing open and flexible education to all, and to excel as a provider of quality higher education.

Our Mission

To advance learning, knowledge and research that meet students' learning aspirations and society's talent needs, focusing on practical and professional programmes. As a multi-mode university guided by the core values of fairness, integrity, perseverance and innovation, we offer world-class education using innovative teaching and education technology.
