Quality Manual – Foreword


The CUHK Strategic Plan 2021-2025 (“CUHK 2025”) cherishes the University’s vision of achieving excellence with purpose and responsibility, and seeking to forge a better future for all. One of the goals for  “Education” in CUHK 2025 is to “expand CUHK’s leading role and positive impact on the professions and industry as well as the larger community through high-quality Sub-degree, Professional and Continuing Education Programmes (SPCEPs)”.

In addition to undergraduate (Ug) and postgraduate (Pg) studies, the SPCEP is an important sector in discharging the University’s missions of lifelong education and social impact with more than 90,000 graduates to date.

With approval by the Senate, the Senate Committee on SPCEP (“Senate SPCEP”) was established to actively assist in the planning, implementation, and quality enhancement of SPCEPs at an advanced level. The Senate SPCEP, composed of senior academics and administrative staff of the University, works together with the Ug and Pg sectors for the betterment of academic offerings.

This manual is one of the major vehicles to crystalize the quality assurance (QA) policies and guidelines through a set of continuously improving, robust and transparent QA mechanisms developed for the SPCEPs. It presents a long-established and consistent approach in the execution of QA mechanisms at all levels of the University.

The Senate SPCEP and its secretariat together with our internal and external stakeholders would seek continuous enhancement, with purpose and excellence, to bring positive outcomes that can serve the community as a whole. Your feedback is most valuable to us. Welcome to make your suggestions by email to us at spcep@cuhk.edu.hk.
