Welcome to the Alumni Website!

Under the names of the Department of English, the Department of English Studies and Comparative Literature, and now the School of English, in the past hundred years we have welcomed thousands of students. Many made their career in Hong Kong and many others are scattered all over the world.

The University’s centenary year seems to us a good time to reach out to our former students, through a website in which they can keep in touch with us and with each other, share news and memories, and make contact with old friends.

We invite all our alumni to register here. Besides recent news about the School, registration gives you access to:

  • our Magazine, with regularly updated features by staff, alumni and students,
  • our file of Memories: alumni are invited to write in and share memories of their student days,
  • and the Archive, in which features, memories and photographs will be stored.

This website is for you. Please use it to share your news and views and memories, join in discussion, and keep in touch with each other.
