Visit of the University of Leeds

Our Director, Prof Hsiung Ping-chen, met the delegation led by Prof John Fisher, Deputy Vice-Chancellor from the University of Leeds in June at the University to develop long-term fruitful philosophical collaboration. Possibilities of establishing research partnership in areas including English/Linguistics, Theology and Religious Studies, History, inter-disciplinary Applied Ethics, Translation and Arts were also explored.

In addition, our University has signed an agreement with the University of Leeds to fasten joint research collaborations on Health and Humanities through staff and student mobility programs, including the Faculty Exchange Program and the PhD Student Exchange Program. It is believed that these programs would not only foster stronger ties between faculty members of CUHK and the University of Leads for academic and research exchange, and develop institutional level partnership between the two universities, but also increase the visibility of CUHK as a world-class research university through student mobility.
