Professor David Carless

The Faculty of Education at the University of Hong Kong is a vibrant environment in which to study and work. We have world-class researchers, award-winning teachers, devoted administrative staff and a distinguished history.

Historically, our Faculty’s origins date back to 1917, when the Department for the Training of Teachers was established in the Faculty of Arts. In 1976, the Department became an autonomous School of Education, and in 1984 the School evolved into the Faculty of Education.

Today the Faculty is a multifaceted organisation responsible not only for programmes in education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels but also for information management and speech and hearing sciences. We are proud of our reputation for innovation and excellence, and we are committed to providing the highest quality learning experience for students on all our programmes.

Our Faculty has a strong commitment to research. We take great pride in the quality and impact of our research, and in being identified in education, communication sciences and information sciences as a nexus for research and development which draws on the best of Confucian and Western scholarship. 

We have deep roots within Hong Kong, and close links with local professional and academic communities through which we engage in knowledge exchange. At the same time, we are a cosmopolitan Faculty, with an international mix of staff and students, and long-standing connections with China and beyond. Through our multiple partnerships, we make every effort to extend our collaborations and deepen our connectedness locally, regionally and globally, for the benefit of staff, students and the wider communities.

Our Faculty offers a caring and stimulating environment for learning, teaching and research, and a firm commitment to community engagement. Whether you are a current or prospective student, a fellow academic, a potential collaborator, one of our alumni, or an interested member of the public, we hope you will find our website informative.
