Chu Hai College of Higher Education (Chinese: 珠海學院) is a private degree-granting institute in Hong Kong. The college is best known for its journalism and Chinese history programmes.The college plans to acquire university status in Hong Kong in or before 2012.


The college was traced back to Chu Hai University (私立珠海大學) in Guangzhou of China in 1947. The private university was a group of prominent educators, financiers, and legislators of the Republic of China including Chen Jitan, Huang Lunshu, Li Yangjin, Wen Fangpu, and Kong Mou Sum. After Guangzhou was taken over by the Communist Party of China in 1949, the college was moved to Hong Kong. As Hong Kong Government only recognised the degree awarded by the University of Hong Kong, it thus renamed to Chu Hai College (珠海書院) due to restrictions on tertiary education in Hong Kong. For years, it maintained a very close relationship to the Republic of China courtesy of the many of the college's founders and subsequent senior staff being former officials or legislators in the pre-1949 mainland Republic of China. It was registered in the Republic of China's Ministry of Education as Chu Hai University (珠海大學) and awarded degrees in the name of the Republic of China Ministry of Education. Thus the status was the same as other universities in Taiwan. The college received annual grants from the Republic of China and was also the agent of administrating Taiwanese university entrance examinations for Hong Kong's students aiming to pursue tertiary education in the Republic of China.

In 1990s, the Taiwanese localization movement led to it being increasingly distanced by rapidly localizing Republic of China on Taiwan. In response, the college joined with other overseas universities to award their own degrees. In May 2004 the Hong Kong SAR government officially recognized her programmes' academic merits and in October was approved to awarded her own degree in the right of Hong Kong by Hong Kong's Chief Executive.

With the approval of Hong Kong SAR government, it has become an "Approved Post Secondary College" since July 2004, and renamed as Chu Hai College of Higher Education(珠海學院). On the same day the college went off the register of the Republic of China's Ministry of Education as part of the requirement of Hong Kong ordinances and Republic of China laws. Its grants from the Republic of China were withdrawn by the Legislative Yuan in 2003. New students are no longer awarded degrees in the right of Taiwan and Taiwanese university entrance examinations for Hong Kong students have since been organized directly by Taiwan's National Chi Nan University.


After moving to Hong Kong, it borrowed the building of Dai Tong Secondary School (大同中學) in Mongkok as her campus. The secondary school was closed and the college was forced to move to Tsuen Wan.
