吳迅榮(Shun-Wing NG)

摘要

近年,香港政府積極考慮將香港發展成區域教育樞紐,以加速香港高等教育的國際化。本文報告一項關於香港高等教育國際化的委託研究,透過與高等教育持分者作深度訪談、查閱網頁及報章等質性資料,分析香港高等教育國際化的誘因和障礙。研究發現,促進國際化的因素包括香港的金融中心地位、中港互動、社會自由、高等教育質素等;但政策配套措施欠善、對外宣傳策略不周、非本地生融入社會的問題等,都對高等教育國際化有不利影響。

關鍵詞:高等教育;國際化;教育樞紐

Abstract

Recently, the Hong Kong government has considered internationalizing its higher education and promoting Hong Kong as a regional education hub. This article reports the findings of a commissioned survey on internationalizing Hong Kong’s higher education. Through qualitative methods such as interviewing stakeholders of Hong Kong’s higher education and searching information from relevant Websites and newspapers, the facilitating factors for and barriers to internationalization were analyzed. Hong Kong being a financial center, the interaction between Hong Kong and China, a society of freedom, and the quality of higher education are those facilitating factors, whereas inadequate policy infrastructure, insufficient visibility of Hong Kong’s higher education services, and social integration problem of non-local students are negative factors for the internationalization of higher education.

Keywords: internationalization; higher education; education hub
