In Hong Kong, compulsory education is the span of schooling that all kids must go through. This journey kicks off at the age of six and stretches for a solid nine years, up until the young learner hits the age of 15. During these formative years, students dive into primary and junior secondary school, which make up the initial two stages of Hong Kong’s three-stage education framework.
As the compulsory education phase wraps up, students stand at a crossroads. They’ve got options! They can choose to pursue their educational voyage by joining senior secondary school or take the path of vocational training or even hop on the train of employment.
