Welcome Message from the Dean of Students
Welcome to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU)!
Studying at university is a new chapter, and indeed a very important chapter, of your life. I want to congratulate you for making a smart choice. PolyU is a great university – a university that aims at providing the best holistic education for our students. We do not only prepare our student for success in their chosen profession, but nurture them to be future-ready, socially responsible global citizens. To this end, we provide you with a comprehensive range of co-curricular programmes, activities and services. We want you to feel equipped and supported in all areas during your time here, from academic study to extra-curricular activities, from catering to hall residence, from sports training to special interest groups, from internship to career planning, and even financial assistance.
Dear students, do make the best use of your few years at PolyU and you will find it truly rewarding. This is an exciting time with endless opportunities, and possibilities too. Through overseas exchange or internship, Service-Learning, Work-integrated education and many other meaningful initiatives, you will be able to enhance your international exposure, enrich your cultural experience, broaden your perspectives and sharpen your competitive edge. You will become a better, well-educated and more matured person, ready to build up your own career and contribute to the society.
At PolyU, our vision is to “Be a leading university that advances and transfer knowledge, and provides the best holistic education for the benefit of Hong Kong, the nation and the world.” While we will do our best to support our students, we also count on you to help turn our vision into reality.
I look forward to greeting you on the campus!
Professor Esmond Mok
