Students graduating from Sha Tin College enrol in universities around the world, with predominant areas being Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and Hong Kong itself. A small number of students opt for Australia. The IB Diploma is the most widely recognized high school qualification in the world, meaning Sha Tin College easily has a high rate of university enrolment in its graduates, from institutions ranging from Oxford, Cambridge and Ivy League to community colleges.
