The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ), formerly the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation (HKCAA), is an independent statutory body to provide authoritative advice on academic standards of degree programmes in higher education institutions in Hong Kong.
HKCAAVQ recognizes IAU’s degrees as equivalent. IAU’s recognition by HKCAAVQ means that graduates may have an easier time demonstrating their qualifications when pursuing professional and educational opportunities in Hong Kong. Every country’s education system is different, so this type of official recognition can go a long way in ensuring that a degree earned from IAU is accepted. Achieving Hong Kong equivalency recognition was a top priority because many IAU Asian graduates pursue professional and educational opportunities in Hong Kong after graduation.
Achieving recognition from HKCAAVQ is another milestone in establishing IAU’s global brand. As a school, IAU’s desire is to do everything possible to ensure IAU students for success.
