Victoria Shanghai Academy


Transcripts can be provided for school or university applications. If a student has already left VSA for more than a school year, there will be an administrative fee of HK$100, payable by cheque to ‘Victoria Shanghai Academy.’ Please note that transcripts are only considered official by institutions if they have the school chop and are in a sealed envelope with a chop. VSA can arrange for delivery of transcripts via courier if needed; however, the parent or student requesting the transcript is responsible for all courier costs.


Reference letters

There are two types of reference letter which can be provided: 1) A general letter stating when the student began at VSA and the curriculum they are following. This open letter can be used to show the student is regarded at VSA and is directly passed to the requesting student or parent. 2) A more detailed letter of academic ability will be confidential and will only be sent directly to institutions. This policy also covers requests for reference letters for summer school programme applications.


Please note that all requests have a two working week notice to coordinate relevant information.


Invigilation of Exams for Overseas Schools

VSA will invigilate students if they are required to take an entrance exam for an overseas school, by special arrangement if needed. Please note there is an administrative fee of HK$1000, payable by cheque to ‘Victoria Shanghai Academy.’
