Partnership description

A Middlesex University programme and qualification, designed, assessed and quality assured by Middlesex but delivered at and by a partner.


‘HKU SPACE has been a franchise partner of Middlesex University since the early 1990’s. This means that whilst course content is developed by Middlesex University, HKU SPACE provides local lectures and tutorials that comply with Middlesex’s Quality Assurance processes. These courses have been instrumental in meeting the changing needs in education in Hong Kong. Both institutions are committed to this quality provision which is underpinned by the key role of link tutors as well as the excellent teaching provided by Middlesex staff during their visits.'
