Kevin Yeung backs DSE takers

July 10, 2019

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today visited the Hong Kong Taoist Association Ching Chung Secondary School to show his support for students receiving their Diploma of Secondary Education Examination results.


To encourage them not to be afraid of failure, Mr Yeung referred to the proverb “All roads lead to Rome” to illustrate that different methods will yield the same result.


He went on to say that the Government is actively promoting vocational and professional education and training, and pointed to diverse education and career paths available for students.


The education chief added that there are more than 50,000 places available for students to apply this year, including about 24,000 for undergraduate programmes and 30,000 for sub-degree programmes.


Additionally, the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors is providing around 3,000 places for undergraduate programmes this year. 


Starting from the 2019-20 academic year, about 2,000 students per cohort will be subsidised to pursue full-time locally accredited self-financing sub-degree programmes in selected disciplines.
