Administrative Structure

The College of International Education is committed to excellence in all aspects of teaching and academic support. Under the leadership of the Director of CIE, the College has a committed team of teaching and administrative staff to provide quality teaching and learning.

CIE has developed a well-established organisational and management structure which is based on the principles of accountability, effective management of resources and clear lines of communication and supervision across different management levels, across campuses and different academic divisions.

CIE places a strong emphasis on providing students with the best learning experience. Various working committees are set up to fulfill specific responsibilities. The major committees include:

  • College of International Education
    • CIE Advisory Committee
    • CIE Programme Board
      • Programme Management Committees and Other Academic Sub-committees
    • CIE Executive Committee
      • Administrative or College Development Committees and Sub-committees

The CIE Advisory Committee advises the College on the overall programme operation and management. It also assists the College in planning and reviewing the academic programmes in relation to the needs of community and future development, in addition to acting as an interface between the College and the industry / business / education / government sectors and the community at large.

The Executive Committee sets the direction for the strategic development of the College.

The Programme Boards take care of major academic affairs on the operational level, such as curriculum development and revision, as well as improvement of the teaching programme of CIE. In addition, the Boards facilitate the running and implementation of the programme, monitor the quality of the programme and assess the extent to which the course objectives are being met.

The Programme Management Committees aim to co-ordinate day-to-day operations of the programme, ensuring their smooth running as well as providing administrative support to the programme. Specific working groups or special taskforces are to be formed as needed to execute task-specific duties, whilst consultation meetings, briefing sessions, sharing sessions and staff professional development days are organised to brainstorm, inform and collect views amongst those concerned.
