Recognition of Professional Qualifications under HKQF

With effect from September 2018, professional qualifications can be recognised under HKQF. Eligible organisations may apply to become assessment agencies for issuing professional qualifications under Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF).

"Professional qualifications" refers to qualifications (other than mere membership status) granted by a bona fide local organisation to individuals who meet, the requisite academic qualifications plus prescribed years of industry or professional experience and have passed through a robust assessment in written or practical format, not underpinned by an associated learning programme.
