Briefing on Hong Kong school education - an interactive webinar


This online session will give an overview of the structure of the Hong Kong school education system. It will focus on the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE), as well as the former Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) and Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE) qualifications which were awarded up to 2013. The English language component of these qualifications and their suitability for higher education admissions in the UK will also be considered. In addition, the webinar will cover common “bridging” programmes, such as foundation diplomas, which may provide access to higher education in Hong Kong.

The webinar includes practical guidelines on the interpretation and understanding of educational documentation.
