Committee on Self-financing Postsecondary Education chairman reveals plan to strengthen regulatory framework

Strengthening the regulatory framework and setting clearer criteria to deregister poorly performing self-financing postsecondary colleges in Hong Kong will be among the priorities of the advisory committee that oversees the sector, its chairman said.

Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, who was last week reappointed to head the recently reformed Committee on Self-financing Postsecondary Education, revealed the plan in an interview with the Post.

The proposed move was among 13 recommendations the government adopted from a task force Cheung led that was set up to review those institutions, and to address problems within the sector.

There are 28 self-financing postsecondary institutions in Hong Kong, which can award degrees, associate degrees, and higher diplomas, providing more than 30,000 intake places a year. There are also six publicly funded universities that run one or more private extensions.
