Message from the Head of Quality Assurance Office
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (“UNESCO”), quality assurance (QA) is defined as an ongoing, continuous process of evaluating (assessing, monitoring, guaranteeing, maintaining, and improving) the quality of a higher education system, institutions, or programmes. The Organisation further points out that QA in higher education has gained significant momentum worldwide over the last two decades. The major drivers entail the increased public demand for better performance of higher education institutions, widening of access and a clear call from stakeholders for greater efficiency and accountability, the need for better quality graduates to drive national economies, better use of public resources for higher education and increasing cross-border provisions.

Tung Wah College is fully aware of such international trend and always strives to ensure a high-quality learning experience for students through actualising its vision of being recognised for high quality programmes with an emphasis on practical application while exhibiting Tung Wah Group of Hospitals’ spirit of selfless caring for needy people. To this end, a robust QA system has been established.

The College’s Quality Assurance Office (QAO) is mandated to formulate and review policies and procedures for planning, developing and review of programmes to assure the standards of the College’s awards and to promote quality learning and teaching culture and practices within the College.

The QAO is also responsible for ascertaining that the College’s QA policies and procedures are robust and effective in maintaining and monitoring the standards of its academic awards and in supporting the enhancement of the students’ learning experience.

The Office works closely with academic and administrative units across the College in programme planning, development and review, and disseminates information and guidance on quality assurance through various means such as the designated webpage, and also offers training and advice to staff on the different processes.
