Welcome to SHAPE

Post-secondary education is provided by a broad range of institutions in Hong Kong, among which the Vocational Training Council (VTC) plays an important role in imparting the knowledge and skills to young people before they join the workforce.

VTC believes that the employability, competitiveness, and personal development of an individual can be enhanced through lifelong learning.  Since 1999, the VTC, in collaboration with the prestigious universities in the UK, Australia, Mainland China and Hong Kong, has been offering top-up degree programmes tailored to its Higher Diploma graduates to pursue a higher qualification.  The ever-growing popularity of these programmes was the driving force behind the establishment of the School for Higher and Professional Education (SHAPE) in 2003.

SHAPE has worked hard to forge links with both local and overseas universities.  At present, collaborative degree programmes covering 8 areas of study are on offer, serving more than 3,000 students every year.  Our articulation arrangements with partner universities also enable students to gain maximum benefit from their higher diploma studies and allow them to complete their degree study in 1 to 3 years.

Lectures are conducted by university lecturers and SHAPE's teaching staff at the campuses of the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education where state-of-the-art facilities and comprehensive support are provided.
