During 2018, we undertook a review of UK transnational education (TNE) in Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China). We review UK transnational education on a country-by-country basis as part of our mission to safeguard standards and improve the quality of UK higher education wherever it is delivered


Following an initial scoping exercise, we selected 14 TNE partnerships for review, the provision of which represents the range of UK TNE on offer in Hong Kong. The findings are published as quality assurance reports on nine individual partnerships, four case studies, and an overview report.
