Most Hong Kong universities to resume online classes for coming semester, while officials mull phased reopening of primary, secondary schools

By ITS Education Asia

It appears the new Hong Kong school year will start for many students as online classes, reports the SCMP.

At least six of eight publicly-funded universities in Hong Kong announced that most courses in the first semester of 2020-21 would be conducted online. Chinese University, Education University, Polytechnic University, Baptist University, Lingnan University and the University of Science and Technology have issued letters to students and staff on the decision to lean on online teaching for the semester from September to December.

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung Yun-hung said on Monday that kindergartens and international schools would begin face-to-face classes no earlier than August 17.

Two sources told the Post that during Thursday’s meeting, school representatives suggested that senior secondary and older primary school students should be among the first batches to return to campus if the health crisis came under control.

They also suggested special arrangements should be considered for Form Six pupils at secondary schools who would be sitting for the university entrance exams, as well as for Form One and Primary One students starting their first year at a new school.
