    OUHK Student Financial Assistance Scheme

    The OUHK Student Financial Assistance Scheme aims to provide bursaries or student loans  for OUHK students who encounter financial difficulties in paying tuition fees.  Since the scheme was established, over 31,100 students have been benefitted and more than $400 million have been granted. The average success rate is high.


     

    Bursaries are donated by philanthropic corporations and individuals. Continuing students who have passed one distance-learning/ face-to-face postgraduate credit-bearing course at OUHK are eligible to apply. OUHK student loans are financed by a Government grant. They are available to any student (new or continuing student) who intends to register for any distance-learning/face-to-face postgraduate credit-bearing course on an application basis. Applicants should also make and complete ONLINE course application/registration separately to the Admissions & Enrolment Office (Part-time & Postgraduate) of the Registry.
