Update on the new OUHK Affinity Card Programme
With effect from 1 April 2021, the "BOC [Bank of China] Credit Card (International) Limited" ("BOCHK") will be the service provider for the new OUHK Affinity Card Programme. However, since the OUHK has earlier announced that it will soon adopt a new title ("Hong Kong Metropolitan University 香港都會大學"), the official launch of the new Affinity Card programme will be postponed until late 2021 or 2022, after the new University title is officially adopted.
Starting from 1 April 2021 till the official launch of the new affinity card, eligible OUHK students who are existing principal cardholders of any BOCHK UnionPay credit cards can apply for the "Interest-free Tuition Installment Plan" ("IFTI Plan"), subject to specified terms and conditions, to facilitate their tuition payment.
For any eligible OUHK student who would like to enjoy BOCHK's offer of the IFTI Plan during the transition period but has not yet got a BOCHK UnionPay credit card, please visit BOCHK website at https://www.bochk.com/en/creditcard/details.html to apply for the credit card and contact BOCHK directly for any related enquiries.
For any enquiries related to tuition payment and the offer of the IFTI Plan, please contact OUHK during office hours at:
