Message from Immediate Past President



Over 2 million students have passed through the doors of HKU SPACE since its first incarnation as the HKU Department of Extramural Studies in 1956.  Annual enrolment has exceeded 100,000 since 2002 and HKU SPACE is now the recognised leader and pioneer of continuing and professional education and life-long learning in Hong Kong with the largest pool of alumni.

The HKU SPACE ALUMNI was formally established in 2004 under the leadership of Dr. Peter C.Y. Lee and with the support from a group of enthusiastic alumni and community leaders.  Throughout the past years, the ALUMNI has been dedicated to building an active and lifelong relationship between the School and the alumni members as well as among the alumni members themselves, and promoting lifelong learning and community service.  The ALUMNI also assists the School in widening its range of programmes to suit the needs of different age groups and backgrounds, promotes the development of social enterprises and mobilizes the expertise among alumni to provide opportunities for lifelong learning as well as career assistance to our members in general.

I urge you all to visit this website regularly to learn about our forthcoming events and activities and participate actively in them.  We sincerely hope this website will become an inter-active platform for you all: a platform where you can build your personal networks, work with leaders and renowned professionals from different industries and help foster a culture of lifelong learning and serving the community amongst HKU SPACE ALUMNI members.

Darwin Chen
Immediate Past President
