Director's Message
Welcome to the Hong Kong Community College (HKCC) Website!

For those with a "can-do" spirit, Hong Kong has always been a "land of opportunity"– a multifarious society where those with determination will always find the path to success.

This is very much true for the pursuit of postsecondary education in Hong Kong. Secondary school leavers now have many pathways to pursue further education. Besides the JUPAS route, they can choose to enrol in Associate Degree or Higher Diploma programmes. And, as you probably know, Hong Kong Community College (HKCC) is a major provider of such programmes.

I am happy to share with you that, since our establishment in 2001, over 25,200 HKCC graduates have successfully articulated into bachelor’s degree programmes, representing a 16-year average articulation rate of 81.5%.

Of course, a high articulation rate does not automatically mean that you, by joining us, will be guaranteed success. However, here at HKCC, we will do our best to help you succeed with your studies.

To begin with, we offer more than 30 Associate Degree and Higher Diploma programmes, so as to ensure that you can find the programme that best suits your strengths and aptitude. Our caring lecturers, in their roles as your teacher, friend and supporter, will provide you with quality teaching while at the same time organise a wide array of co-curricular activities that nurture your holistic development.

Last but not least, your college life will take place in our vibrant campus environment. HKCC programmes are mainly conducted on PolyU Hung Hom Bay Campus and West Kowloon Campus (a few classes are conducted on the PolyU Main Campus). With a total floor area of over 57,000 square metres, the two campuses will offer you state-of-the-art facilities as well as ample space to enjoy your college life to the fullest.

In the days ahead, we will remain true to our mission and continually improve our programmes; we will also further expand the articulation network for our students.

In a way, HKCC is your "college of opportunity", in the sense that if you have the determination to succeed in your studies, HKCC can help you realise your dream!
