Abstract

A study to measure the influence of higher education on students’ academic, social and personal growth was conducted at a local university in Hong Kong in 2000. The setting was Lingnan University in Hong Kong, a small governmentfunded liberal arts university. The empirical investigation adopts an approach of assessing quality of university education using data collected from individual students about their subjective experiences during the university years and their perceptions of the value of the educational experience.
