    New full-time diploma programmes

    Diploma in Sport Management — The programme aims to equip students with various sport management skills, with which students will be able to handle sport injuries, and operate clubs and fitness centres. The programme also prepares students for further studies in sports and recreation.

    Innovative degree programmes to nurture relevant specialists

    BSc (Hons) in Environmental and Public Health — The programme is designed to furnish students with the skills of public health intervention, such as providing health advice and promotion, and management of public health services. This is the only undergraduate programme in Hong Kong accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, UK.

    BMus (Hons) in Popular Music — The programme aims to provide students with a deep understanding of the popular music context, in terms of its culture, the industry, musicology, aesthetics, and practicality. This is the first and only popular music undergraduate programme to be offered in Hong Kong, with venues and professional equipment provided by the Baron School of Music. Application for exemption from registration of this programme to the Education Bureau is in progress.

    BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies — The programme looks into the development of early childhood from the perspectives of history, philosophy, psychology, sociology and management. Through teaching and learning opportunities, and through examining polices related to childcare and child education, students will be introduced to the subject matter across different contexts and disciplines.

    These programmes are offered in collaboration with Middlesex University, UK. It is a matter of discretion for individual employers to recognise any qualifiacation to which these courses may lead.

    Professional recognition of Advanced Diploma in Accounting

    The two-year full-time programme has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Accredited Accounting Technicians (HKIAAT) and the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA), Australia. Graduates of the programme will be eligible for exemptions of up to seven (out of eight) papers in HKIAAT assessment and ten (out of 12) papers in ICMA examinations for the Registered Business Accountant.

Upon completion, students will be formally matriculated in the Heriot-Watt University and can progress to the Postgraduate Diploma or Master of Business Administration/Master of Science programmes.
