Programme Mission and Goals

What is expected or required?

  • Include a brief statement of the overarching mission and goals of your programme, and ensure that they are aligned with PolyU's mission and goals.
  • If you would like to see an example of this, please refer to Note 1 in Appendix 3.
  • Successful programme outcomes assessment begins with clarifying what the programme aims to accomplish or deliver.
Useful References
  • All undergraduate programmes have already done this in the 2005 Curriculum Revision Exercise, so it can be as simple as copying directly from your existing programme document.
  • On the other hand, it may also be useful to use this opportunity to review and further refine your programme goals.
    • Look at whether you have actually covered all the important goals as expected by the key stakeholders.
    • Check whether the goals are broad enough for a holistic university education in addition to professional training.
    • Examine the extent to which they embed PolyU goals (because programmes are expected to do this).
