Hong Kong Shue Yan University offered its first Master’s programme, the Master of Social Sciences in Counselling Psychology (MSSCP), in 2010.  The launch of Master’s programmes in all three faculties was a major objective of the University’s Academic Development Plan 2010 – 2015. So far, five further Master’s programmes and a Doctor of Psychology programme have been successfully accredited by the HKCAAVQ. The primary goal of the Strategic Plan 2015 – 2020 is to sustain our first mover advantage as the students’ choice of private university in Hong Kong. The first priority under that goal is to offer postgraduate degree programmes by research, including MPhil and PhD. The Graduate School was founded in 2016 under the leadership of the Director of the Graduate School to assume responsibility for all taught postgraduate programmes to maximize utilization of resources. It is also responsible for coordinating policies and procedures to ensure that academic standards are applied consistently across all disciplines for the proposed MPhil/PhD programmes.
