The campus is located next to the beach in a serene environment where staff and students enjoy a pleasant and inspiring teaching and learning context.  The stunning buildings house state of the art facilities for teaching, learning and research activities.

A Thoroughfare to Private University with its Accredited Programmes

In 2001, the Board of Governors of the College, established the College Development Committee to be responsible for preparing and submitting practicable plans for the long term development of the College.

In 2002, after consulting the Education and Manpower Bureau (EMB) and the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation (HKCAA, now known as HKCAAVQ), the College invited the HKCAA to undertake an accreditation of the College and its programmes.

In early 2003, the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation (HKCAA) confirmed the granting of accreditation status to the College. At present, a total of three Master Degree Programmes and fourteen Bachelor Degree Programmes in various disciplines are all successfully accredited by the HKCAAVQ, which are fully recognized under the Hong Kong Government Qualification Framework (QF).

The College is Registered with the Approval to award Degrees

Echoing the Government's policy of encouraging the development of private universities to introduce a more diversified and vigorous tertiary system in Hong Kong, the College successfully registered as an Approved Post Secondary College in July 2004.
