As we approach the second decade of the 21st century, our society places an ever-growing demand on professionals to operate in a digital and information management environment and to possess advanced subject knowledge in different industries. This programme is offered in collaboration with Charles Sturt University, Australia (CSU) and is delivered in distance learning mode supplemented by local tutorials.
The qualification obtained in Hong Kong through CSU and HKU SPACE has full recognition by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and internationally by other library associations such as the American Library Association (ALA) as an appropriate professional degree for librarians.
Graduate Diploma of Information Studies is considered Intermediate Exit Award of Master of Information Studies. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive the CSU Graduate Diploma of Information Studies, and the Diploma in Librarianship within the HKU system through HKU SPACE jointly with the Hong Kong Library Association (HKLA). Graduate Diploma of Information Studies formally is known as Graduate Diploma of Applied Science (Library and Information Management).
