    The Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences has received a Friendly Employment Award and an Outstanding Inclusive Team Award MoreClose

    We are pleased to announce that the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences has been awarded a Friendly Employment Award and an Outstanding Inclusive Team Award under the Talent-Wise Employment Charter and Inclusive Organisations Recognition Scheme, by the Labour and Welfare Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

    The Friendly Employment Award was set up to give due recognition to inclusive organisations which employ persons with disabilities and utilise the work ability of employees with disabilities, allowing them to reach their potential and facilitating their self-sustainability. It is also available to organisations who promote their business partners to employ persons with disabilities. The Outstanding Inclusive Team Award was established to give recognition to the mentors and teams from inclusive organisations where an inclusive workplace is built to assist employees with disabilities in coping with difficulties at work and in integrating into the work team. 

    The 2017-18 Award Presentation Ceremony and Experience Sharing Session for Inclusive Organisations was held on March 5, 2018 at the Central Government Offices, Tamar. For more details of the Award and the Scheme, please refer to http://www.lwb.gov.hk/charter_scheme/index_e.html.

    QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018

    No. 7 in the world again - QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018 MoreClose

    We are glad to share with you that our Faculty is ranked seventh globally in the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World Rankings by Subject 2018, released on February 28, 2018. 

    The Faculty has consistently performed well in world rankings. In the Times Higher Education (THE) University Subject Ranking for Education 2018, we were ranked as world number four. In the QS University Subject Ranking, the Faculty was ranked sixth globally for two consecutive years in 2015 and 2016, and seventh in 2017. We are glad to maintain our position among the top Education faculties in this latest QS ranking, joining the league of 1) University College London, 2) Harvard University, 3) Stanford University, 4) The University of Cambridge, 5) University of Oxford, and 6) The University of Melbourne.

    QS uses four criteria for its ranking system – Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Citations per paper, and H-index, which measures both the productivity and impact of a scholar’s publications. The relative weightings of these criteria vary slightly from discipline to discipline. For Education, the weightings are 50% Academic Reputation, 10% Employer Reputation, 20% Citations, and 20% H-index. The ratings reflect academic peers' and employers' opinions of the Faculty, and also the achievements of academic staff in research (citations and impact). The Faculty has obtained a high indicative score of 87.3, with a very strong performance for all four criteria demonstrating our all-round achievements.

    Professor A. Lin Goodwin, Dean of the Faculty, said: “My colleagues and I are extremely pleased with our QS University Subject Ranking of 7. We see it as an important indicator of the quality of our teaching and research, as well as the quality of our students. We are proud to be recognized for our efforts, even while we are also humbled and further motivated by this accomplishment to keep striving for excellence.”
