Brief History

1960s

1970-1972

The surge in population in Hong Kong created an increase in demand for higher education, and the demand for higher education places has gone on increasing ever since. Today there are quite simply not enough places to satisfy young people’s desire to obtain further knowledge.

In April 1969, The Hong Kong Buddhist Sangha Association (HKBSA) founded the “Hong Kong Buddhist College” (HKBC) which was registered under the HK Government Education Department as a not-for-profit college and matriculation school.

Six departments were set up under the Post-Secondary Division, namely Buddhism, Chinese Literature and History, English Language, Sociology, Business Administration, and Art. In the Sixth Form Division, the College offered a full range of both Arts and Science subjects.

In April 1970, in order to meet student demand, the College purchased a six-storey building at 176-178, Yee Kuk Street, Sham Shui Po and in 1971-72, and other seven-storey block was built for the College at 325 Lai Chi Kok Road. With amble teaching facilities and an experienced teaching staff recruited from home and aboard, 4-year Business, Philosophy and Chinese bachelor degree programmes approved by the Taiwan National Education Department were launched, and these programmes have been recognized by universities in America, Canada, Japan and Australia.

Another floor in a commercial block at 340 Un Chau Street was purchased for the establishment of an Institute of Philosophy to offer Master and Doctoral Degree Programmes. In May 1997, the Institute of Philosophy  and the Institute of Chinese Language and History were relocated to the building on Yee Kuk Street.


2011-12 & 2012-13

In order to meet the needs  of students when university places are limited , HKBC has decided to seek local accreditation, offer degree programmes  validated by HKCAAVQ and work towards becoming a prestigious private university in the long term.

As a higher education provider, the College intends to pursue the Buddhist values of compassion and equality, and will strive to support all its students to develop a positive and global outlook on life, and to find an ethical pathway for contributing to the common good.

In 2012-2013, the College was accredited by HKCAAVQ to run three Associate Degree Programmes in Business Administration, Chinese and Visual Communication Design, and it is now seeking to be accredited to run two Bachelor Degree Programmes in Business Administration and Chinese starting in 2014/15.


2013-14

Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education (NYC) was founded in April 2014. Its precedent was the Hong Kong Buddhist College (HKBC) which was established in 1969, a private educational institution funded by the Hong Kong Buddhist Sangha Association. Since 2011, HKBC had been vigorously working towards becoming the Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education. In April 2014, HKBC was finally approved by the HKSAR Government to become Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education to award university-level 4-year full-time Degrees. NYC will offer the two 4-year Full-time Bachelor Degree programmes in September 2014.


2014-15

NYC offers two Bachelor Degree programmes (Chinese and Accounting); four Associate Degree programmes (Business Administration, Chinese, Visual Communication Design and Real Estate Management) and the Diploma in Foundation Studies for Higher Education programme. All programmes have been accredited by The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ).


2015-16

NYC offers two Bachelor Degree programmes (Marketing & English for Professional and Intercultural Communication)(QF Level: 5). All programmes have been accredited by The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ).

NYC continues to offer Associate in Business Administration and Associate in Chinese programmes (QF Level: 4) subsequent to successful re-accreditation conducted by the HKCAAVQ.

In November 2015, the Hong Kong College of Technology and Business Limited became a member of Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education Limited.

NYC offers Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) programme (Majors: Human Resources Management/ Banking and Financial Services) (QF Level: 5). The programme has been accredited by the HKCAAVQ.

NYC continues to offer Diploma in Foundation Studies for Higher Education programme (QF Level: 3) subsequent to successful re-accreditation conducted by the HKCAAVQ.

NYC becomes the partner of the University of West London in the offer of their programmes in Hong Kong.


2017-2018

NYC’s programmes were successfully re-accredited by the HKCAAVQ, meaning that it could continue to offer the degrees of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Chinese and Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) in Accounting (QF: Level 5). The re-accreditation confirmed the College’s status as a quality provider of tertiary education programmes of study.

NYC was approved by the Executive Council, following accreditation by the HKCAAVQ and the SWRB, to offer a Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) programme in the academic year 2018-2019.


2018-2019

NYC commenced running the four-year full-time Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) programme (QF Level: 5), which enrolled over 40 students in the first year. This number was close to the ceiling set by the SWRB for student admission. This shows that applicants recognized the quality of the College and its Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) programme.

NYC’s Higher Diploma programme in Health Management and Social Care was successfully accredited by the HKCAAVQ. This programme provides a solid foundation from which students can progress to the College’s nursing programme in the future.


2019-2020

In May 2020, Prof. Thomas Wong Kwok Shing, Dean of the School of Nursing and Healthcare, became Acting President and is making valuable contributions to the future development of NYC.


2020-2021

NYC commenced running the two-year full-time Higher Diploma in Health Management and Social Care programme (QF Level: 4), which is part of a progression pathway provided by the College: from Diploma, to Higher Diploma and finally to Bachelor Degree. This progression provides students with a comprehensive study and future employment pathway.

In 2020-2021, the Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) programme achieved a full quota of students in its first year. In addition to this, NYC is currently offering Bachelor programmes in Chinese and in Accounting, as well as the Higher Diploma programme in Health Management and Social Care.

At this time, NYC is waiting for the final approval of the Nursing Council of Hong Kong to run its Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) programme. The programme has been accredited by the HKCAAVQ and NYC expects it will run in the academic year 2021-2022.
