About The Education University of Hong Kong (HKIEd):

Hong Kong (“Fragrant Harbour"), officially known as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is a megacity on the southern coast of China at the Pearl River Estuary and the South China Sea. Hong Kong is well known for its expansive skyline, deep natural harbour and extreme population density. The current population of Hong Kong comprises 93.6% ethnic Chinese.

The Education University of Hong Kong (established in 1994) is located north of Hong Kong Island in the New Territories close to the Chinese sea. It is a publicly-funded tertiary institution dedicated particularly to the advancement of teaching and learning, through a diverse offering of academic and research programmes on teacher education and complementary social sciences and humanities disciplines. The Institute certainly can be regarded as a leading university on education, creating an impact and defining the education landscape not only for Hong Kong but also for the whole Asia Pacific region. Due to its strong educational orientation the university constitutes an ideal academic background for Landau students striving to become teachers of English in German schools and higher institutions.
