UOW College Hong Kong (UOWCHK), formerly Community College of City University (CCCU), has more than 35 years of experience in providing quality tertiary education in Hong Kong.
The College is registered under the Post Secondary Colleges Ordinance (Cap 320) and is an approved post secondary college in Hong Kong. Since July 2015, the College has been part of the global network of the University of Wollongong (UOW) in Australia, through which our students’ horizons and learning experiences have been widened and enriched via visits by UOW academics or exchange programmes to UOW.
With approximately 220 well qualified and dedicated staff, UOWCHK is highly regarded for its rigor in quality assurance and its emphasis on holistic education. Significant resources are devoted to devising an uncompromising curriculum and arranging overseas study tours and short courses, internships, and career exposure and mentorship programmes to facilitate the intellectual development of students.
It is widely acknowledged as one of the leading institutions of its kind in Hong Kong and provides quality tertiary education to more than 3,500 students. The College offers a wide range of degree and sub-degree programmes, a Diploma in General Studies, and international language proficiency tests with preparatory courses. In association with UOW, the College offers accredited UOW top-up degrees for associate degree or higher diploma graduates.
UOWCHK aspires to be a leading university in Hong Kong with an outstanding reputation for the professionalism of its graduates.
We aim to deliver quality in teaching, learning and research with a strong and connected presence to our local, regional and global communities, nurturing graduates who are recognised for their capability and trusted for their professionalism.
In July 2015, the University of Wollongong (UOW), Australia, assumed stewardship and governance of UOWCHK.
Through this alliance, UOWCHK students’ horizons and learning experiences have been widened and enriched via exchange programmes to UOW's global network of campuses.
Articulation opportunities have been enriched by this partnership as UOWCHK now offers UOW top-up degrees in business, communications, and computer science.
