UK State Sixth Form College Seminar ( + Admission Data Analysis of Non-Jupas Route)

Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or above (Seminar)
Location: British United

Studying GCE A-levels in a State Sixth Form College is the cheapest option in sixth-form, where tuition and accommodation expenses can start at around HKD$160,000 every year. The GCE A-levels qualifications also have the advantage, which reserves the possibility for students to apply to universities in Hong Kong via the Non-Jupas route. If the Non-Jupas application were successful, your overall education expenses would be much smaller than studying in a university in the UK!

In the seminar, The College of Richard Collyer will introduce you aspects of the study life in a state sixth form college, while British United will complement the discussion with an analysis of Admission Data via the Non-Jupas route:

  • Study Life in a State Sixth-Form College: Frances Boulter, Admissions and International Manager from The College of Richard Collyer will introduce you the typical study life in a State Sixth-Form College, covering issues such as teaching quality, facilities, subject choices in GCE A-levels, entry requirement and university destination of past students.
  • Admission Data Analysis of Non-Jupas Route (Hong Kong): Based on admission data of local universities of the past few years, British United will show you how big a chance you have in securing a place via the Non-Jupas route. It turns out that a huge difference exists in different academic disciplines!
  • Successful Cases Sharing: Oscar, graduate from The College of Richard Collyer and also a BU student, will attend the Seminar to share their experience studying in The College of Richard Collyer and in dealing with Non-Jupas applications. Oscar is currently studying in University of Hong Kong.
