Upholding TNE programme standards comparable to home-programme standards 

A mechanism is in place to ensure that the transnational education programmes offered are comparable to the home programmes.

Purpose

The purpose of this practice is to ensure the academic standards of the transnational education programmes and safeguard the interest of the students studying offshore or by distance. An institution adopts the same academic regulations as well as assessment criteria and practices, and comparable admission requirements to both the home and TNE programmes. To enhance the relevance of transnational education programmes to non- local students, an institution exercises flexibility to customise the curriculum and delivery.

 

Outcome

The outcome of employing this practice is ensuring the academic standards of the graduates of the transnational education programmes are the same as those of the home programmes.
