Interested in changing the world?


If you are a teacher with academic inclinations or a psychology graduate with applied interests – and a penchant for research – get in touch?

 

I am looking for a few good Ph.D. students interested in “interest”! My programme focuses on the development and application of “interest” in a broad range of contexts: from middle, secondary and tertiary education to the workplace.

If this sparks your curiosity, get in touch, send along your CV and let’s have a conversation. There are a number of pathways to a fully subsidised Ph.D. at the University of Hong Kong for foreign and Hong Kong students.

 

The first and most prestigious is the Hong Kong PhD. Fellowship Scheme. There are 240 awarded a year. They are competitive, but if you have a strong academic record and experiences that you think set you apart, then it is well worth a shot. The second avenue is a HKU Postgraduate Scholarship. The great thing is, if you apply for the Hong Kong Ph.D. Fellowship Scheme, you are automatically considered for the second one as well.

 

Check out the webpages, consider this path to a Ph.D. at The University of Hong Kong and a first step toward a research career in the area of human interest.
