Building on the 2006 audit of links between the UK and mainland China, QAA identified Hong Kong as the focus of part of its 2007 audit of overseas partnerships. The main purpose of the audit was to provide assurance to stakeholders about the academic standards and quality of UK higher education awards offered in Hong Kong.
In summer 2006, QAA surveyed all UK institutions to gather information about their proposed and established links in Hong Kong; 52 said that they had partnership links. QAA then identified six institutions for a detailed audit of their links in Hong Kong.
