Accolade on quality sub-degree education by UGC’s Quality Audit Report
LU’s commitment to providing quality sub-degree programmes and valuable learning experience, as well as its well-designed extra-curricular and student development activities are commended in the Report of a Quality Audit of Sub-degree Operations of Lingnan University released by the Quality Assurance Council of the University Grants Committee (UGC) on 6 November.
The Audit Panel confirms that the existing quality assurance policies and procedures for curriculum design, programme development and approval of Lingnan Institute of Further Education (LIFE), LU’s self-financing sub-degree providing unit, are broadly fit for purpose, and the programme delivery is sound. The report commends the quality of LIFE’s teaching staff, endorses LIFE’s commitment to providing professional and pedagogical development opportunities, and highlights its whole-person development through students’ learning and support. Both current students and recent graduates of LIFE are generally well satisfied with the quality of their studies, according to the report.
The panel affirms the initiatives to develop more focused Key Performance Indicators and quantitative measures for the strategic objectives of the University and LIFE, and plans to introduce a new programme re-approval procedure and programme-level surveys of student learning experience and alumni.
