Administrative history

The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) was renamed The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) in 2016. The Institute was founded in 1994 following the enactment of the HKIEd Ordinance in March of the same year. It was one of eight subsidized Universities under the University Grants Committee of Hong Kong.

The history of the institution can be traced back to 1853. St. Paul’s College introduced the first formalised program of in-service teacher training. On 25 April 1994, under the recommendation made by the Education Commission Report No 5., HKIEd was formally established by the merger of four colleges and one institute that were governed by the Education Department of Hong Kong Government.
