2019/20 Web-based Learning Courses for Gifted/More Able Students (jointly administered by the EDB and the HKAGE)


In order to provide appropriate advanced enrichment learning opportunities for gifted learners to excel in their talented areas, Education Bureau (EDB) has been providing web-based learning courses for gifted/more able students since 2008. Throughout the years, these courses have been well-received by teachers and students. In the 2019/20 school year, the courses are organised by The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) and the EDB is the supporting organisation. Schools are encouraged to nominate gifted/more able students from upper primary (P4 – P6) to secondary (S1 – S6) to the courses.


These web-based learning courses cover five programmes including Earth Science, Palaeontology, Astronomy, Mathematics and the Changing Hong Kong Economy. They are available in both Chinese and English. Each of these programmes comprises three levels of study with standards of the highest level up to senior secondary. Certificates will be issued to those who complete each level of study and pass the level test. Students of appropriate age1 who pass the level 3 test in any one of the programmes will be eligible to apply for membership of the HKAGE.

1 Target members of the HKAGE are gifted students aged 10 to 18


Application to all* programmes will be open from 2 October to 6 November, 2019. Successfully admitted students are required to complete the enrolled programme on or before 19 August 2020. Schools can nominate students to the programmes via the HKAGE online system within the period stated above.
