Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education (HKNYC) (Chinese: 香港能仁專上學院) is a private higher education provider in Hong Kong. The College was founded in 1969 as the Hong Kong Buddhist College (HKBC), and changed its name in 2014 when it was granted accreditation from the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) for its associate degree programmes.[1] The College is a registered nonprofit organisation.[2]

In 2014 the Education Bureau, and the Chief Executive approved the application by the College to use the moniker Hok Yuen (學院) as part of its official name.[3] The NYC features are small class size and scholarships and bursaries are provided to students. All NYC programmes have been accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ). In the next few years, NYC will offer more bachelor's degree Programmes to the Hong Kong community, covering fields such as Human Resources Management, Banking and Financial Services, Social Work and Applied Psychology. A Master in Buddhist Studies programme is also part of this plan.

NYC owns two campuses. The campuses house Lecture Theatres, an Exhibition Hall, Classrooms, Computer Laboratories, a Music Room, a Dance Room, a Student Common Room, a Fitness Room, a Table Tennis Room, a Student Activities Room as well as a Sky Garden. The Library has around 200,000 items, among which 170,000 are electronic books. Equipped with 200M internet and Web 2.0 technology.
