FSTE Conference 2018 : Striving for Quality Education (open for registration)

12 Apr 2018

The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) again joins the Federation for Self-financing Tertiary Education (FSTE) as an Associate Organiser of the annual conference to be held on 1 June 2018.

Professor Anthony Cheung will speak to the theme of this year’s conference “Striving for Quality Education”, followed by concurrent sessions of a wide range of presentations.  Higher Education is becoming a major driver of economic competitiveness in an increasingly knowledge-based society.  The maintenance of standards and the overall quality of education provisions is of pivotal importance and has been a recurring concern in the society. Providing affordable programmes in a self-financing environment requires self-financing institutions to find an appropriate balance between quality and cost-effectiveness. In response to the concern, this Conference aims to examine relevant issues and facilitate the interflow of good practices among stakeholders.

The conference will be held at PolyU Hung Hom Bay Campus. Online Registration can be done via the FSTE conference website. For details, please visit the conference website at
