PolyU-affiliated HKCC and SPEED Celebrate the Graduation of

over 4,300 Students in their 14th Joint Graduation Ceremony

 

(21 November 2016, Hong Kong) Hong Kong Community College (HKCC) and School of Professional Education and Executive Development (SPEED), the educational units of the PolyU-affiliated College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE), held their 14th Joint Graduation Ceremony on 19 and 20 November 2016. HKCC sent forth more than 2,800 graduates who earned their Associate Degree (AD) or Higher Diploma (HD). As for SPEED, it sent forth nearly 1,510 bachelor’s degree graduates, including 1,416 conferred with an honours degree award.

HKCC Graduates Hit a Record High Articulation Rate ─ 89.3%

Dr Simon Leung, CPCE Associate Dean (Development) and HKCC Director, said, “According to the 2016 Graduation Survey which had a response rate of 88%, a total of 2,207 HKCC graduates articulated to bachelor’s degree programmes, representing a record high articulation rate of 89.3%. What’s more, among the articulated graduates, those admitted to UGC-funded bachelor’s degree programmes reached a record high of 56.6%. In other words, one out of every two articulated HKCC graduates was admitted to a government-funded bachelor’s degree programme. Seeing HKCC stepping into its 15th Anniversary in 2016, I take great pride in these record-breaking articulation figures that represent a landmark achievement of HKCC.” (Please refer to the Annex for an overview of the HKCC Graduate Survey 2016.)

“Over the past 15 years, HKCC has been offering quality AD and HD programmes to help secondary school graduates build a solid foundation for further studies or career development. Since the first cohort in 2003, more than 20,700 HKCC graduates have successfully articulated to bachelor’s degree programmes, representing a 14-year average articulation rate of over 80%. Among the 2,207 HKCC graduates articulated this year, more than 520 (23.6%) were admitted to the bachelor’s degree programmes leading to PolyU-SPEED awards. This reflects the significance of the CPCE ‘2+2’ articulation pathway for HKCC graduates,” added Dr Leung.

Enhancing CPCE “2+2” Articulation Pathway with New Top-up Honours Degree Programmes

The flexible CPCE “2+2” articulation pathway enhances substantially the articulation prospects of HKCC graduates. After completing their 2-year sub-degree study, HKCC graduates have the opportunity to articulate to SPEED’s 2-year top-up honours degree programmes.

As part and parcel of the “2+2” articulation pathway, SPEED issues a Conditional Offer to HKCC Year-1 students. Upon completing their study at HKCC and meeting the stipulated requirements of the Conditional Offer, HKCC students can articulate to SPEED’s 2-year top-up honours degree programmes leading to PolyU-SPEED awards. 

Dr Jack Lo, SPEED Director, said, “SPEED is committed to providing quality articulation opportunities for HKCC and other sub-degree graduates. To enhance the CPCE ‘2+2’ articulation pathway, SPEED has been actively expanding its range of top-up honours degree programmes in recent years. Among those leading to PolyU-SPEED awards, the BA (Hons) in Business (Health Services Management) is a new programme proposed to be introduced under the existing BA (Hons) Scheme in Business as from 2017/18.  In addition, the BSc (Hons) in Surveying and the BSc (Hons) in Building Engineering and Management are planned to be offered as PolyU-SPEED award programmes, after their transferal from the PolyU Department of Building and Real Estate to SPEED as from the next academic year.”

HKCC and SPEED are two self-financed educational units operating under the auspices of CPCE, which was founded by PolyU in 2002. HKCC currently offers more than 30 sub-degree programmes spanning the domains of arts, science, social sciences, business and the specialised areas of health studies and design. As for SPEED, it provides more than 30 top-up honours degree programmes (leading to PolyU or PolyU-SPEED awards) which match closely the articulation needs of HKCC graduates in related disciplines.

理大轄下香港專上學院專業進修學院第14屆聯合畢業典禮

頒授學銜予4,300名畢業生

 

香港理工大學專業及持續教育學院(CPCE)轄下香港專上學院(HKCC)及專業進修學院(SPEED)於2016年11月19及20日舉行第14屆聯合畢業典禮。HKCC有逾2,800名畢業生獲頒授副學士或高級文憑資歷;SPEED則有近1,510名學士學位畢業生,其中1,416名獲頒榮譽學士學位。

HKCC升學率創新高    89.3%

CPCE副院長(發展)兼HKCC院長梁德榮博士表示:「根據2016年畢業生升學調查(回覆率88%),HKCC有 2,207名畢業生升讀學士學位課程,升學率達89.3%,創下歷年新高;而繼續升學的畢業生中,入讀政府資助學士學位課程的比率亦達56.6% 新高。換言之,每兩名升學的畢業生中,就有一位入讀政府資助學士學位課程。今年喜逢是HKCC成立15周年,屢創新高的升學數字正好為學院的發展立下重要的里程碑。」(升學調查結果詳見附件。

梁博士續說:「過去15年,HKCC致力為中學畢業生提供優質的副學士及高級文憑課程,為他們日後的學業或事業發展奠下穩固的基礎。自2003年首屆畢業生至今,HKCC有逾20,700名畢業生升讀學士學位課程,14年平均升學率逾80%。今年2,207名繼續升學的畢業生中,有逾520名(23.6%)升讀可獲頒理大專業進修學院學銜的學士學位課程,反映CPCE『2+2』升學途徑對HKCC畢業生的重要性。」

鞏固CPCE22」升學途徑   增辦榮譽學士學位銜接課程  

CPCE靈活的「2+2」升學途徑大大增強了HKCC畢業生的升學機會。同學完成HKCC兩年制副學位課程後,有機會升讀SPEED提供的兩年制榮譽學士學位銜接課程。

在CPCE「2+2」升學途徑下,SPEED會為HKCC一年級同學發出有條件取錄通知書。同學完成HKCC副學位課程及符合取錄通知書指定的條件後,可以升讀SPEED,修讀可獲頒理大專業進修學院學銜的榮譽學士學位銜接課程。

SPEED院長羅文強博士表示:「SPEED致力為HKCC及其他副學位畢業生提供優質的升學機會,近年學院積極提供更多元化的榮譽學士學位銜接課程,藉以加強CPCE『2+2』升學途徑。展望2017/18學年,SPEED計劃提供更多可頒授理大專業進修學院學銜的課程,包括在現時的商業(榮譽)文學士組合課程中增辦商業(榮譽)文學士(健康服務管理);SPEED亦有意從理大建築及房地產學系接辦兩項課程,分別為地產及建設測量學(榮譽)理學士和建築工程及管理學(榮譽)理學士,同學完成課程後可獲頒理大專業進修學院學銜。」

CPCE由理大於2002年成立,轄下教學單位HKCC及SPEED以自負盈虧方式運作。HKCC現時開辦30多項副學位課程,涵蓋文、理、社、商範疇,也有健康學及設計專科。SPEED為緊密配合HKCC畢業生的升學需要,現時提供逾30項可獲頒理大或理大專業進修學院學銜的榮譽學士學位銜接課程。
