Professor John Lee

Welcome to The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK), a university that has inherited a rich legacy in education from its predecessors, while exemplifying a vibrant spirit of innovation. We strive to play a distinctive role in leading education and related disciplines, while making a significant contribution to educational transformation locally, regionally and globally.


I am pleased that we have created a multidisciplinary environment conducive to the pursuit of knowledge. This goes hand in hand with our increasingly diversified academic profile, as well as our research and knowledge transfer initiatives. This also helps establish a community of engaged learners and eminent academics, who thrive in a vibrant scholarly environment.
At EdUHK, we are committed to nurturing outstanding educators and professionals, who are passionate, professional, ethical and innovative. Building upon our academic strengths in teacher education, we have been expanding the scope of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to encompass artificial intelligence and educational technology, heritage education and arts management, sports science and coaching, and global and regional studies.


As a research-active university, we have made great strides in research in education and various emerging disciplines, such as environmental management, psychology, linguistics and language studies, with the University Grants Committee recognising our research output as “World Leading” and “Internationally Excellent” in its latest Research Assessment Exercise. The numerous prestigious accolades earned are also testimony to our contribution to the convergence of knowledge, technology and society.
To better synergise our interdisciplinary expertise, I am pleased to witness the establishment of two new Academies, namely the Academy for Educational Development and Innovation (AEDI), and the Academy for Applied Policy Studies and Education Futures (AAPSEF). They will serve as hubs of excellence to further extend our research impact in Hong Kong and beyond.
I hope you enjoy exploring the learning and research opportunities offered by EdUHK.
