Qualifications recognised under the Hong Kong Qualifications Frameworks (HKQF) are characterised by their levels which reflect the depth and complexity of learning leading to a qualification.  In October 2012, the Secretary for Education of the HKSAR Government announced the introduction of the Award Titles Scheme (ATS) and the use of credit under the QF.  Award title reveals the nature, area of studies and range of QF levels of a qualification, and credit indicates the volume or size of learning of the qualification.
