Message from the Associate Vice President (Academic Support) and Academic Secretary

Thank you for browsing the Academic Secretariat Homepage of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The Academic Secretariat is one of the central administrative units of the University. Our main duties, apart from providing quality support to the academic communities at PolyU, include i) Student admissions & promotions of our academic programmes; ii) provision of secretariat support to the Senate as well as looking after the Teaching Calendar; University Calendar; Academic Regulations; Student Handbooks; and iii) Students Registration; Student Records; Graduate Awards and Certification in addition to Class and Examination Timetabling. Over the years, the Academic Secretariat has cultivated a strong culture to provide professional services to prospective and current students, graduates and academic colleagues on all matters related to academic studies and regulations. You will get to know us right from the point before you apply, during your studies and after your graduation via our full range of student administration services.

My colleagues and I are here to support the implementation of academic policies and regulations, under the leadership of the Senate and the President’s Office, to ensure both students and academic colleagues are able to benefit from the wealth of services and facilities that we have built up during the past several decades to make PolyU one of the great international Universities that appeal to top talents, be they students or academics.

We sincerely hope that you can more easily find all of the information you need about our work and our services through our departmental website.

You are most welcome to contact us if we can be of service to you.

Welcome again.

Prof. S.L. Ho
Associate Vice President (Academic Support) & Academic Secretary
