Reconnect with the School of Chinese@HKU


Dear School of Chinese Alumni,


I hope this message finds you well. My name is Pei-yin Lin, and I am currently the Head of the School of Chinese (formerly known as Department of Chinese). I am writing to share some exciting updates about our school and to invite you to reconnect with us as we approach a momentous milestone.


Over the years, our school has thrived, reaching a record high of 1,700 students annually in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese History and Culture, Translation, and Hong Kong Studies. Our 32 full-time, globally-minded faculty members are dedicated to teaching. They also conduct cutting-edge research in collaboration with international partners, publishing in prestigious journals in both English and Chinese. Our growing alumni network boasts successful professionals and leaders across various industries, and we take great pride in your accomplishments.


To foster our global community, we have recently launched our official LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube channels. We invite you to follow and engage with us on these platforms, as well as our website and Facebook page, to stay informed about the latest news and events.

As we approach our centenary celebration in 2027, we would be thrilled if you could join us on this remarkable journey. We kindly ask that you take a few minutes to complete our online alumni questionnaire (link: Your valuable input will not only enable us to update our records, but also to engage you in our students’ career planning initiatives and explore ways for you to contribute to the success of our university. Please assist us in reaching out to any friends or former classmates who may not be on our mailing list, and encourage them to fill out the questionnaire as well.


Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to School of Chinese@ HKU. We look forward to reconnecting with you and working together to make our centenary celebration a truly memorable occasion.


Warmest regards,


Pei-yin Lin
