Suspending classes on the Main Campus for the rest of the semester

Important message from the Senior Management Team

Dear students,

In view of the uncertain and unsafe traffic conditions for travelling to HKU, we are suspending classes on the Main Campus for the rest of the semester and making teaching and learning accessible online. This will enable students to stay away from campus, and even leave Hong Kong should they wish, while at the same time completing their courses and assessments.

Individual instructors will upload to Moodle detailed arrangements for course delivery and assessment. Examinations will be moved online or replaced by alternative forms of assessment. Details will be circulated in the next few days.

For help with travel arrangements out of Hong Kong, non-local students are advised to contact either the China Affairs Office or the International Affairs Office.

To celebrate its Oak Anniversary, the Faculty of Science, The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the HKU Foundation co-presented a knowledge exchange East Africa Wildlife Eco-Tour in July 2019.

An exhibition on the Eco-Tour will be held on HKU campus, where HKU members and general public can now view the stunning scenery and wonders of nature seen in this Eco-Tour captured by the lenses of student eco-leaders, who were trained in wildlife photography.

Display period: September 24 to October 4, 2019
Exhibition Opening: September 24, 2019 | 6:00 pm
Venue: Foyer of Chi Wah Learning Commons, Centennial Campus, HKU
 

The Eco-Tour, led by Dr Billy Hau from the School of Biological Sciences, aimed to spread the important message of nature conversation. Fifteen students from the Faculty took up the role as Eco-leaders and were paired up with HKU alumni and HKU Foundation members, who supported the students’ participation on this meaningful learning journey.

Not only did the participants have an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the Great Migration in Kenya and other breathtaking views of Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli, they also saw more than 330 species of birds, 60 species of mammals and 15 species of reptiles and amphibians.

All are welcome to come and appreciate the beauty of nature and biodiversity of Kenya. You may also visit the Eco-Tour website for the full collection of the gorgeous photos.
