The Education Bureau (Chinese: 教育局; Cantonese Yale: Gaauyuhk Gúk; abbr. EDB) is responsible for implementing education policies in Hong Kong.

The bureau is headed by the Secretary for Education and oversees agencies including University Grants Committee and Student Finance Office.


The Education Department (Chinese: 教育署 and 教育司署 before 1983) was responsible for education matters in the territory, with the exception of post-secondary and tertiary education. In 2003, the department was abolished and a new bureau, the Education and Manpower Bureau (Chinese: 教育統籌局 abbreviated EMB) was formed. In July 2007, the manpower portfolio was transferred to the new Labour and Welfare Bureau by newly re-elected Chief Executive Donald Tsang.

The bureau was formerly housed at the Former French Mission Building.
