The Hong Kong education system is one of the most lauded and respected in the world. While it is not without its criticisms, the success that it has seen comes as no surprise given that Hong Kong was once a British colony and thus, its educational system is modelled in a similar fashion to the UK.


The school year in Hong Kong runs from September through June, as in majority of the Western hemisphere. At present, students in Hong Kong start off in kindergarten and remain here for three years. Kindergarten schooling is voluntary in Hong Kong. However, this is not the case for other levels, which are either compulsory or selective as mandated by the government. Primary education lasts for six years while junior secondary education runs for three years. Senior secondary education or high school lasts for three years. Lastly, tertiary or college education has no set number of years as it is dependent on the course that the student chooses to take up.


The academic environment in Hong Kong educational institution is not without challenge and perhaps this is one reason why Hong Kong tutoring services have been in demand in recent years.
