The Alliance of International Education (H.K.) is a young, energetic company located in the heart of Hong Kong. It was established in 1999 following the recent years of economic downturn in Hong Kong and the subsequent concern among professionals, who realized the need to develop their skills and education in order to improve their career prospects. This increased interest can also be attributed to the Government incentive of low-interest loans, which were part of a move to encourage more people to take the steps necessary to fall in line with new technologies and an increasing trend towards globalization. It was also at this point that the founders of AIEHK became acutely aware of the growing need for an intermediary service that could coordinate exceptionally specialized programmes of study with a network of support.
AIEHK has accumulated many years of valuable experience working within the field of health care education and has thus developed a deep insight into the many difficulties faced by students seeking a programme of study, which befits their goals. To ensure students reach their full potential and gain optimum results with lasting effects on the advancement of their careers, they have created a highly personalized service, earning the esteem and recommendation of former progamme participants.
In fact, with the assistance of AIEHK, many students from Hong Kong have so far successfully participated in collaborative programmes at top universities and colleges in the U.S.A., UK and Australia.
Their steadfast guidance again proved invaluable to many students for whom AIEHK made it possible to gain entry into the highly commended BPhil and MPhil/PhD programmes, which have been offered in Hong Kong and validated by the University of Exeter in the UK from year 2000 to early year 2009.
Over the past sixteen years, AIEHK has offered over four thousand students the opportunity to study in the offshore Bachelor of Science programme and two Masters of Science programmes in health care and/or nursing studies disciplines at Oxford Brookes University in the UK. At present, there are about three thousand registered health care practitioners who are the graduates of Oxford Brookes University contributing to the local health care settings in Hong Kong.
The awards obtained from all those programmes from University of Exeter and Oxford Brookes University are of great benefit to local health care professionals who wish to extend their specialist knowledge or enhance career prospects. Therefore, AIEHK has already been well known in creating a platform for life-long learning and support the development of marketable skills and education at an international level in the health care sectors of Hong Kong. This has further been proved by being the first private educational institution in Hong Kong accredited by the Nursing Council of Hong Kong as a provider of Continuing Nursing Education (CNE).
As an educational organization that places great emphasis on its commitment to students at all stages of their programme, one of AIEHK's principle concerns is the need to provide a fully comprehensive and personalized service. The quality and range of their services are designed to create an accessible, comfortable environment that is conducive to effective study and research.
Their renovated and fully equipped facilities include three conference rooms, three spacious classrooms, a teaching faculties' office and a student corner comprising of a computer area, leisure corner and study area.
The conference room is ideally suited to small meetings such as tutorials, seminars and other student or staff gatherings. Located in the office area is a professional self-contained library carrying a vast range of resources and detailed information on home-based or overseas study. Students engaged in distance study programmes are also able to access a wide range of textbooks and reference materials relevant to their particular programmes.
Notwithstanding advanced facilities such as state of the art desktop computers and connection to broadband for easy access to the Internet and Email, the faculty office is also an ideal place to carry out administration work and meet with students.
To facilitate the seminars, which consist of at least one week of study with a few visiting faculties from the university, AIEHK have installed three sizable classrooms, well equipped with LCD projectors, overhead projectors, audio-support, TV, whiteboards and flipcharts. Each of these classrooms can accommodate up to 60 students when seated and are perfectly suited to workshops, seminars or lectures. Like the rest of the facilities, they are air-conditioned with drinking water provided.
The student corner is designed to meet the same high standards and requirements of facilities at a university campus and students are strongly encouraged to take full advantage of its resources. Students have unrestricted access during opening hours to extra computers with links to the Internet and Email.
