For Students

Self Nomination for Secondary and Primary Students 2021/22

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) endeavours to secure appropriate learning and development opportunities for gifted students aged 10 to 18 in Hong Kong.

HKAGE admits student members of appropriate ages mainly through the “School Nomination” and “Self Nomination” schemes every school year. Gifted students interested in being members of HKAGE are required to pass “Stage 1: HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening” before they can submit their nomination profiles in “Stage 2: Submit Nomination Profiles” for further screening. 

After considering the feedback from various stakeholders, originally each student can only apply for the HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening once either via school or self-nomination during primary school study and twice during secondary school study. This restriction will be lifted from the 2021/22 school year and each school can nominate up to 50 students per year via school nomination.

One nomination will be arranged to be completed within a school year annually.
