Programme Overview and Aims
Since its foundation in 1911 the University of Hong Kong has prepared professional educators for Hong Kong, the region and beyond. The Master of Education (MEd) programme, offered since 1978, has significantly contributed to that goal. MEd graduates from the University of Hong Kong are actively involved in school administration, policy development, adult and vocational training, teacher education, curriculum development, classroom teaching, educational assessment and evaluation, and educational research both in Hong Kong and abroad. However, the educational context is changing rapidly and with it the demands on teachers and educational professionals for new skills and knowledge are increasing. Hence, the MEd programme has been significantly restructured to provide more choices for applicants and to deliver the programme in a more flexible way.
