Further to our previous announcement, the Academy has continued to closely monitor and assess the situation regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In view of the continued increase in the spread of the disease, and the need to further reduce social interactions and the risk of transmission, a decision has been taken to continue to close both campuses (Wanchai and Bethanie) until 31 May 2020. This decision has been carefully considered in the best interests of the health and safety of staff, students and the general Academy community.

HKAPA EXCEL will continue to STAY IN TOUCH with you VIA EMAIL and make necessary arrangements and announcements when alternative delivery strategies are ready for implementation. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

 Please stay vigilant about your health and seek medical assistance immediately if you are feeling unwell. We all hope that there can be a resumption of face-to-face classes at the Academy in June if the situation stabilises, and look forward to seeing you all again. If you have any questions, please email to excel@hkapa.edu

In cases of unexpected circumstance such as cancellation of classes, EXCEL will send urgent messages via SMS and emails. You should provide an up-to-date mobile phone number and email address to excel@hkapa.edu.
