AbstractThis chapter explores the development of mass higher education in Hong Kong and discusses at policy agendas forpost-massified higher education. Hong Kong has experienced the rapid expansion of higher education during last three decades and the government has developed several policy strategies to respond the increasing demands. For example, in addition to the establishment of new universities, some existing polytechnic institutions were upgraded to offer degree programs. Furthermore, self-financed programs and associate degree programs were also introduced to respond to the government initiatives focused on increasing higher education opportunities. This chapter describes these changes of Hong Kong higher education based on historical perspectives. Finally, the chapter also explores policy issues regarding the post-massification of higher education in Hong Kong in terms of quality, relevance, financial resources, and equity.
