2017-06-16 12:55[英语文摘] 来源:互联网 评论:0条

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong opening its colleges to students from the Chinese mainland in 2002.

Over the years, many top performers in China's ferociously competitive national college entrance examination have opted to study at Hong Kong universities rather than top colleges in the Chinese mainland, such as Peking and Tsinghua University.

Let's take a look at some of the major universities in Hong Kong allowed to enroll students from the mainland.

1. The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Chu Hai College of Higher Education traces its origins back to 1947, when a group of prominent educators founded Chu Hai University in Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong province, with the mission of educating younger generation, helping rebuild the country soon after the World War II.

The name of the college literally means Pearl-Sea in Chinese, denoting both the original location of the college on the banks of Chu (Pearl) River, and the ideal of the college which urges its students to be as pure as pearl (Chu) and to pursue knowledge which is as deep as the sea.

In 1949, the university moved with all its teaching resources to Hong Kong and registered as Chu Hai College under the Education Ordinance with the approval given by the Director of Education Department to offer post-secondary courses to students.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong was among the first batch of colleges in Hong Kong to open its doors to students in the Chinese mainland.

Founded in 1963, the Chinese University of Hong Kong has become a comprehensive research university with a global reputation.

Over the past years, as many as 2,000 students from the Chinese mainland have studied in the university.
