UK education options for F.6 students (HKALE)
Students who have completed F.6 in Hong Kong can choose to take a 1-Year A-levels course or a University Foundation Course in the UK.
University Foundation Courses (usually last a year) provide an opportunity for students to progress to year one of undergraduate degrees in UK universities. Some of these programmes station in university campus, offering you full benefit as an UK university student!
1-Year A-levels is normally offered by independent colleges and international boarding schools. Students will focus on three A-level subjects only, and will be able to apply to universities in the UK and in Hong Kong. It’s the toughest option among pathway programmes, but also comes with higher recognition. It’s suitable for students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, and students considering to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.
