The Centre for Applied English Studies (CAES) was established in 1992 to provide English support to undergraduates at the University of Hong Kong. Today CAES also offers thesis writing and academic language instruction to postgraduate students and conducts research into academic discourse and literacy practices in various domains. The Centre’s Postgraduate Diploma in English Studies, MA in Applied Linguistics as well as supervision of PhD students are integral to its mission of enhancing academic literacy. CAES contributes to the University’s broadening courses and summer programmes and provides language consultations to students.
