All of the UK and Australian top-up degree programmes offered at SHAPE are accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) at Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF) Level 5.  This accreditation status enhances students’ employment and further studies opportunities, as well as access to financial assistance.


  • The degree qualification pitched at QF Level 5 is formally recognised by the HKSAR Government for employment purposes within the Civil Service for graduate posts.


Further Studies

  • Having been recognised at QF Level 5, our UK and Australian top-up degree programmes meet the standard of locally-accredited bachelor's degree programmes.  Upon graduation, students may pursue their further studies at Master’s degree level.
