SCS Partnership with Chinese University Hong Kong Leads Alumni to Lifelong Learning
The University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies is pleased to expand its initiative of encouraging lifelong learning. This fall, the School of Continuing Studies extended a reciprocal agreement with School of Continuing and Professional Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong providing graduates of either institution the opportunity to enrol in continuing education courses at substantial discounts.
The School of Continuing Studies will provide a credit of up to CDN$600 for CUHK alumni to attend a U of T SCS in-class course and the CUHK SCS will provide a credit of up to HKD$3,000 for any recent U of T graduates. This program will continue through August 31st, 2015. This collaboration is a natural fit since both schools share a strong commitment to providing lifelong learning that helps individuals, organizations and communities become more connected and successful.
“Lifelong learning is essential to success in contemporary society,” says Marilynn Booth, Director, University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. “Our intention is to be a world leader in developing and delivering lifelong learning that has the power to change lives. This can best be done with effective collaboration with other educators such as The Chinese University of Hong Kong. We share the goal of increasing our alumni’s access to quality continuing education.”
Dr. Ella P. O. Chan, Director, School of Continuing and Professional Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, is also enthusiastic. “As the need for continuous learning increases it is imperative that, as educators, we are more responsive, more technologically progressive, and more collaborative. There has never been a more exciting time for lifelong learning. This partnership is at the leading edge of that change.”
