Brief History

The surge in population in Hong Kong created an increase in demand for higher education, and the demand for higher education places has gone on increasing ever since. Today there are quite simply not enough places to satisfy young people’s desire to obtain further knowledge.

In April 1969, The Hong Kong Buddhist Sangha Association (HKBSA) founded the “Hong Kong Buddhist College” (HKBC) which was registered under the HK Government Education Department as a not-for-profit college and matriculation school.

Six departments were set up under the Post-Secondary Division, namely Buddhism, Chinese Literature and History, English Language, Sociology, Business Administration, and Art. In the Sixth Form Division, the College offered a full range of both Arts and Science subjects.
