This is a case study on the quality assurance of liberal Arts education. Lingnan University locates Hong Kong which is an international hub. High internationalisation makes Hong Kong be different from other Asian cities with unique pedagogical experience and Lingnan University is a liberal arts university with its unique direction in quality assurance management. This study analysed Lingnan University quality assurance system through ADRI model, which is widely used by the Hong Kong government to measure the quality of education in eight universities. Through the analysis of Lingnan University quality assurance system, it reveals that liberal art education has supported a clear orientation for teaching objectives and quality certification and the quality of teaching and learning for Lingnan University is guaranteed by a sound evaluation system. However, the proportion of evaluation and how to proceed the statistics between government and schools if they have different standards which still worth discussion. Moreover, employment rate index should be considered as the output of the evaluation index for Lingnan University. Finally, based on the analysis results, this study introduces suggestions which can provide some reference value for the quality assurance management of Lingnan University and other universities in Hong Kong.
