University of Hong Kong
The University of Hong Kong, abbreviation: HKU, is an English-speaking university and the oldest in Kong Kong. It is one of the most renowned universities in the world. It is also known colloquially as Hong Kong University. HKU is located in Pokfulam, with buildings to the west and south of the island of Kong Kong proper, in an area stretching from Kennedy Town in the west to Waterfall Bay in the south. The University of Hong Kong traces its origins to the Hong Kong College of Medicine for Chinese, founded in 1887 by the Anglican London Missionary Society. The university itself was not created until Sir Frederick Lugard, as governor of Hong Kong, thought it was necessary to establish a university in or near China to catch up with other European powers, especially Prussia, which had shortly before established Tongji University in Shanghai.
