Primary schooling starts at the age of around six and there are 6 years of schooling at the primary level. There The Government aims to provide a balanced and diverse school education that meet the different need of our students; help them build up knowledge, values and skills for further studies and personal growth; and enhance students’ biliterate (i.e. English and Chinese) and trilingual (i.e. English, Putonghua and Cantonese) abilities.
There are three main types of local secondary schools – government schools which are operated by the Government; aided schools which are fully sub vented by the Government but run by voluntary bodies; and private schools, some of which receive financial assistance from the Government. Government and aided schools deliver a curriculum recommended by the Government. They offer free and secondary education.
Besides, there are some international schools which offer non-local curricula and serve primarily non-Chinese speaking students and foreign nationals.
All students can now benefit from 6 years of secondary education. At the end of Secondary 6, students take one public examination – the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination, which replaces the former Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination and Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination.
The Government strives to provide multiple study pathways for secondary school leavers, with multiple entry and exit points. Some of them will study bachelor’s degree programmes direct after completing HKDSE. Some will choose to study sub-degree programmes. Upon graduation, they can pursue study in top-up degree programmes (i.e. “2 + 2” arrangement) and obtain their undergraduate qualifications.
There is also a wide array of taught and research postgraduate programmes for students who have graduated from their undergraduate studies to choose from.
Vocational education plays a pivotal role in broadening the learning opportunities for school leavers and in-service personnel as well as nurturing the requisite human capital in support of Hong Kong’s development. The Government have been attaching great importance to vocational education. Various post-secondary education institutions also offer more than 250 higher diploma programmes, of which at least 60% of the curriculum is devoted to specialized content in specific disciplines, professions or vocational skills.
Apart from local schools, the Government aims to develop a vibrant international school sector in mainly meeting the demand for school places from overseas families living in Hong Kong and families coming to Hong Kong for work or investment.
