    OUHK welcomes over 300 subsidized places in the SSSDP

    In late July, the Education Bureau announced the launch of a new subsidy scheme to subsidize up to 1,000 students per cohort to pursue designated full-time locally accredited self-financing undergraduate programmes in selected disciplines. The three-year Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions (SSSDP) will subsidize 13 programmes in five self-financed higher education institutions, including the OUHK, beginning with the 2015–2016 academic year. The programmes focus on more than ten professional fields and aim to nurture talent in support of specific industries that have an urgent or keen demand for human resources. The scheme has a two-tier arrangement, with $70,000 per year designated for each student enrolled upon a laboratory-based programme with higher operating costs, and $40,000 per year designated for those students enrolled on programmes that are not based on laboratory work.

    Among the 1,000 total available places, 350 places have been earmarked to support students from four of our laboratory-based programmes: the Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in Animation and Visual Effects, Bachelor of Science with Honours in Testing and Certification, Bachelor of Nursing with Honours in General Health Care and Bachelor of Nursing with Honours in Mental Health Care.

    The University welcomes the SSSDP and takes great pride in having been granted more than one-third of the total available places, which demonstrates the government’s recognition of the quality of our full-time programmes. The scheme will help alleviate the financial burdens of students and their parents, and encourage more students to stay in Hong Kong to pursue their tertiary study. The University believes that the SSSDP will also help to enhance the academic quality of the programmes and positively impact the long-term development of self-financing institutes. The OUHK hopes that this scheme can be further extended in the future to cover a wider scope of self-financed programmes so that more young talents may be cultivated to contribute to Hong Kong’s potential industries.
