Administrative Structure

The College of International Education is committed to excellence in all aspects of teaching and academic support. Under the leadership of the Director of CIE, the College currently has over 170 teaching staff (of which around 40 are from various academic departments of the University). The College has also a committed team of academic support staff to provide quality academic support for teaching and learning.

CIE has developed a well-established organisational and management structure which is based on the principles of accountability, effective management of resources and clear lines of communication and supervision across different management levels, across campuses and different academic divisions.

CIE places a strong emphasis on the integration of the strengths of the academics and that of the Academic Registry Support Services to provide students with the best learning experience. Various working committees are set up to fulfill specific responsibilities. The committees include:

  • College of International Education
    • CIE Advisory Committee
    • CIE Programme Board
      • AD Programme Management Committee (PMC)
        • Academic Planning Committee (APC)

The CIE Advisory Committee advises the College on the overall programme operation and management. It also assists the College in planning and reviewing the Associate Degree Programme in relation to the needs of community and future development, in addition to acting as an interface between the College and the industry / business / education / government sectors and the community at large.

The Executive Committee sets the direction for the strategic development of the College.

The Programme Board takes care of major academic affairs on the operational level, such as curriculum development and revision, as well as improvement of the teaching programme of CIE. In addition, it facilitates the running and implementation of the programme, monitors the quality of the programme and assesses the extent to which the course objectives are being met.

The Programme Management Committee aims to co-ordinate day-to-day operations of the programme, ensuring their smooth running as well as providing administrative support to the programme. Specific working groups or special taskforces are to be formed as needed to execute task-specific duties, whilst consultation meetings, briefing sessions, sharing sessions and staff professional development days are organised to brainstorm, inform and collect views amongst those concerned.
