An HKEAA delegation comprising Mrs Christina Lee, Director of Public Examinations and Mr Wan Tak-wing, General Manager – Assessment Development, promoted the HKDSE to some reputable universities in South Korea in May. During their visit, they conducted a seminar and provided information on the standards and the international recognition of the HKDSE to the admission officers of some leading Korean institutions, including Seoul National University, Korea University and Kyung Hee University.
The delegates also met with representatives from the National Institute for International Education (NIIED) and discussed further education opportunities in Korea for senior secondary graduates from Hong Kong. With the growing popularity of Korean culture, there has been increasing interest in further studies in Korea. Currently there are around 500 Hong Kong students studying in Korea.
Other than institutions in Korea who have shown great interests in our students, universities in other Asian countries, like Singapore, also consider the HKDSE qualification for admission to their universities.
