The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), formerly the Open Learning Institute of Hong Kong (OLI), is the first self-financed university established by the government offering open and distance education in Hong Kong. The change of title, in May 1997, reflects the recognition of the University's outstanding academic standing, achievements and contributions to Hong Kong’s higher education.
Established by the Hong Kong Government in 1989 as a provider of distance education, OUHK began offering full-time programmes in 2001. Over the years we have grown into a leader in open and flexible education in the Asia Pacific region, and our full-time face-to-face programmes for qualified secondary school leavers are on par with other established universities across Hong Kong. OUHK today is a young, dynamic, full-fledged university.
Research Office (RO), from the University Research Centre (URC)* of the past, is the centralized unit of the Open University of Hong Kong facilitating research activities of the University, supporting research carried out by staff of the University and coordinating development projects with external funding.
