Li Po Chun is a purpose-built United World College situated in a semi-rural location in Hong Kong's New Territories. The college is co-educational and is fully residential, all students and academic staff living on campus. All entrants follow a two-year programme which incorporates the International Baccalaureate and all are prepared for the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
