ACCREDITATION

Full Accreditation Reports

To enhance the transparency of the accreditation process, the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) has implemented a phased approach since 2013 to upload the relevant summary accreditation reports onto the HKCAAVQ website for public access. In January 2018, the HKCAAVQ Council further approved the handling procedures for the publication of relevant full accreditation reports to align with international good practices in the quality assurance sector.
