Professional Studies

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

The term “professional studies” is used to refer to academic programs that are designed to provide as much preparation as possible for the workplace. Students may learn about a specific industry or general professional concepts, as well as important career skills.

Hong Kong is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China, the other being Macau.
