To extend its joint research training arrangements with countries in the Asia-Pacific region, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) has signed an agreement on academic and educational collaboration with the Hiroshima University (HU). The collaborative agreement facilitates the setting up of a dual doctoral degree programme with HU. Upon completion of the programme, students will be awarded a doctoral degree in education from EdUHK and a doctoral degree of philosophy from HU.
In 2016, the first-ever dual doctoral degree programme at EdUHK was set up with the University of Lorraine in France, targeting students in the Doctor of Philosophy programme. To provide similar learning opportunities for Doctor of Education students, a dual doctoral degree programme was established with the Leuphana University of Lüneburg in Germany in the 2017/18 academic year.
