At present, there are seven faculties: the Faculties of Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Medicine, Science, and Social Science. A Faculty of Law will soon be added. There are 61 departments, offering 53 full-time undergraduate programs and two part-time degree programs leading to a bachelor degree. There are a total of 54 graduate divisions in CUHK, offering ten postgraduate diploma programs, 123 master programs and 62 doctoral programs in the academic year 2002/03. Currently, CUHK has an enrolment of over 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

Its campus occupies 134-hectares along the southwest shore of Tolo Harbor, just north of Shatin. It is the largest and the most beautiful university campus in Hong Kong, with a panoramic view of the bay and several mountains including Ma On Shan, Needle Hill, Pat Sin Leng, and Lion Rock. The campus is carefully landscaped, with many natural and ornamental plants.

A field trip or leisure walk on the CUHK campus is very relaxing and educational. Students and visitors can come by train or by bus No. 70, 70A, 72, 72A, 73A, 74A, 87K, 272K, 287K or 289K.

  (b) take a photo of the plants or plant parts or a photo of the student standing next to or touching the plants (but no detaching or picking any plant parts), and

We shall arrange to have them loaded on the website.
