HKCAAVQ, QAA & British Council join hands to launch the report on UK transnational education in Hong Kong (open for registration)

23 Aug 2018

HKCAAVQ is pleased to announce a joint event in October with the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), the United Kingdom, and British Council Hong Kong, following the publication of the latest report from QAA on UK TNE in Hong Kong.

The event, Review of UK Transnational Education (TNE) in Hong Kong: Collaborative Quality Assurance Activities Across Borders, will feature speakers including Dr. Fabrizio Trifiro, Manager (International) of QAA and Professor Marin Lockett, Dean and Professor in Strategic Management, Nottingham University Business School China who will provide insights into QAA’s transnational education review in Hong Kong. Deputy Executive Director (Academic) Mr Robert Fearnside will also outline HKCAAVQ’s work on accreditation of non-local programmes.  The presentations will then be followed by sharing of case studies as well as a student panel, which will look at the challenges and benefits of TNE from both an institutional and student perspective.

The event is scheduled for 2pm on 25 October 2018 (Thursday), at the British Council Hong Kong, and will be attended by representatives of UK higher education institutions and local operators in Hong Kong. The event is now open for registration. To RSVP, please click here. Limited seats available.

The report was published by QAA earlier in July after a joint-review exercise with HKCAAVQ in Hong Kong. The report concluded that with HKCAAVQ’s peer-review panels and the use of the HKQF, QAA can confidently rely on HKCAAVQ’s accreditation decisions for UK Transnational Education (TNE) provision in Hong Kong and that HKCAAVQ reviews and judgements can be relied upon for the purpose of UK quality assurance by the QAA and UK institutions.
