Since its establishment, PolyU has groomed more than 290,000 graduates who have made their mark as leaders in a number of professional fields such as business, design, engineering, fashion and health.
We offer a wide range of academic programmes, many of which are amongst the best in Asia and, indeed the world. Applied and professionally-oriented, they are designed to meet the requirements of the business and industrial sectors and the community.
The PolyU programmes are operated under a credit-based system and students are expected to complete about 35 to 45 hours of study to earn a single credit. Bachelors degree programmes usually take three years and normally require the completion of 90 credits. PolyU also offers study options that lead to double degrees or double majors and combine the strengths of different academic disciplines. Tuition fees are highly subsidised by the Hong Kong SAR Government. Scholarships are also offered by the University.
