International Admissions


With ever increasing pace of globalisation and importance of international perspectives, we understand that more and more students in Asian countries are seeking overseas education opportunities in worldwide destinations at pre-university stage. Hong Kong, Asia's world city, has been widely regarded as a springboard for further tertiary education both locally and globally.

Founded by the Sheng Kung Hui (Anglican Church) in 1915, St. Paul's Co-educational College (SPCC) has long been recognized for both academic and musical excellence. We take pride in nurturing successful future leaders for our community. Our graduating classes habitually have 100% entry to bachelor's degree courses in Hong Kong and around the world. Overseas universities that have accepted SPCC students in 2015-16 include Cambridge, Imperial College, LSE, Oxford, UCL and University of Edinburgh in the UK; Johns Hopkins, UC Berkeley, UCLA, University of Michigan, UPenn and Yale in the USA.

We are an authorised IB World School and we offer the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) in tandem with the local DSE curriculum (Diploma of Secondary Education) to meet our students' different modes of learning and different career aspirations.

Learning at SPCC is not confined to the classroom. Other learning experiences and extra-curricular activities abound. In addition to the various exchange programmes established with our sister schools around the world, we hold annual international conferences to ensure that our students have the best of global exposure. We are also a Round Square school and are the only one at present in China. This membership allows our students to engage in community services overseas and enables them to discover foreign cultures along the way.
