School of Continuing and Professional Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) (hyperlinked) established the Department of Extramural Studies in 1965, and in January 2006, it was renamed as the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (CUSCS). Bearing the mission of providing quality continuing professional education programmes and services to meet the changing needs of society, CUSCS offers a diverse range of courses and programmes at different levels.
To provide a more flexible learning and career development path for secondary school leavers, CUSCS has been offering two-year full-time Higher Diploma Programmes since 2002. In 2014, CUSCS launched a 1-year full-time Diploma Programme in Foundation Studies to provide secondary students an alternative option for further studies.
To enhance articulation opportunities for sub-degree graduates, CUSCS has collaborated with renowned Australian universities in offering full-time Top-up Undergraduate Degree Programmes in Hong Kong since 2006.
