Consultation on Award Titles Scheme and Use of Credit

11 Jul 2012

The Education Bureau (EDB) commissioned the Federation for Self-financing Tertiary Education (FSTE) to conduct the following:

(a) a project which aims to develop the proposed Award Titles Scheme (ATS) to standardize the titles for qualifications recognised under QF; and

(b) a pilot exercise which aims to draw up the proposed operational guidelines on assignment of QF credit to learning programmes. As part of the pilot exercise, EDB separately commissioned two quality assurance bodies (i.e. Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications and Joint Quality Review Committee) to advise on how credit values assigned to a programme will be assessed.

The consultation paper developed from the project and pilot exercise and a proposed implementation plan for ATS and use of credit are now available on the QF website for comment.  Your comments and views are welcome.
