Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Entrance Scholarships are available to students when you apply to study at The University of Hong Kong, and are awarded on the basis of academic merits with consideration of non-academic achievement. Our entrance scholarships are made possible by generous donations from various foundations and donors for different kinds of applicants.  A number of scholarships schemes, including the “Vietnam Van Thinh Phat Scholarships”, have been set up to support students from different regions who are applying for undergraduate admissions to HKU.

Besides entrance scholarships, HKU also provides other types of scholarships for current students, please click here for details.

Financial Assistance

Non-Local students

  • Like most countries, the HKSAR government does not provide financial aid to non-local students. However, thanks to the HK Government’s support for the development of Hong Kong as an educational hub for students from around the world, HKU tuition fees are very low by international standards
  • Non-local students can undertake part-time work on campus during the semester, and can work during their summer vacation in the city
  • Graduates may take up full-time employment upon finishing their studies at HKU
