Secondary schools in the UK generally offer Secondary One to Secondary Seven. The courses are the same as those in Hong Kong. The first to third trimesters of Secondary One, Secondary Three and Secondary Four are GCSEs and the A-levels or International Foundation Diploma (S6) IB) course. Students who progress to university after graduating from Secondary 7 will be assessed on the basis of their matriculation and extracurricular activities.

Without the restrictions of Hong Kong's required subjects, students can choose subjects according to their own preferences. In the United Kingdom, students can study history, physics and economics at the same time. The three subjects are from liberal arts and business subjects. All British secondary schools provide counseling on selected subjects as students progress to the Secondary 4 and Secondary 6 preparatory courses so as to help students choose suitable and intersesting subjects.
Tertiary institutions are divided into two major categories: government colleges and private colleges. Both of them aim at students going to college or employment. The mode of study of tertiary colleges is similar to that of universities, giving students more freedom. For example, there is no fixed school, school hours, and no requirement to wear school uniforms. Therefore, college students need to learn independence and responsibility to make them more suitable for admission to university.
Private colleges, provide students with more comprehensive care. Private tertiary institutes put a lot of resources on teachers and learning equipment and provide comprehensive support and care for students. Some colleges and universities provide students with an unlimited number of extra-curricular home remedial classes and weekly quizzes to ensure the progress of their studies. As for accommodation, most private tertiary institutions have dormitories. Students are also welcome to stay in homestay accommodation.
