Research Postgraduate Programmes


Research Postgraduate Studies at HKBU

Hong Kong Baptist University offers research postgraduate (RPg) programmes at Doctoral and Master level, i.e. Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil), and admits students from all over the world. HKBU also collaborates with overseas universities to offer joint/dual RPg programmes. 

RPg programmes consist of two major elements: research and coursework.  An RPg student will complete his/her coursework requirements and conduct his/her independent research under the guidance of a principal supervisor and a co-supervisor. A full-time MPhil student is expected to complete the programme in two years whereas a full-time PhD student is expected to do so in four years (for students admitted in and after academic year 2019/20).

While not compulsory, you are welcome to search for potential supervisors and their research interests via HKBU Scholars
