Programs at HKBU
The University has had a long standing partnership with the School of Continuing Education, Hong Kong Baptist University (SCE) in excess of 20 years. The SCE was founded in 1975 and is one of the seven schools or faculties of the Hong Kong Baptist University. The educational objectives of the SCE are based on the notion “learning is a lifelong process”. The SCE has been providing people of all ages with ways and options for professional and academic advancement to meet the needs of the rapidly changing society.
At present there are over 6,300 full-time students and about 8,200 part-time students enrolled in programs of different disciplines at various levels from certificates, diplomas, higher/professional diplomas, as well as associate degree, undergraduate and higher degrees. In addition to offering degree programs awarded by the Hong Kong Baptist University, the SCE has also provided various degree programs collaboratively with different overseas institutions since 1985.
In 2014 the University and the School of Continuing Education, Hong Kong Baptist University celebrated their 20 year collaboration. The occasion was marked by a special event held at the China Club in Hong Kong which brought together many of the more than 6,500 graduates from over the past 20 years, with key leaders including UniSA Vice Chancellor and President, Professor David Lloyd, HKBU President and Vice Chancellor Professor Albert Chan, UniSA Deputy Vice Chancellor: International and Advancement, Nigel Relph and Dean of the School of Continuing Education at HKBU, Dr Simon Wong. This momentous milestone coincided with the re-launch of six new full-time undergraduate degree programs which commenced with the Bachelor of Communication and Media in September 2014.
