The tuition fee payable for each academic year will be determined by the number of credits of the courses taken by the student. A student is normally required to take 40 credits in an academic year. The estimated tuition fees for the programmes given are for reference only.
Students of the OUHK’s full-time programmes may apply for the following Government financial assistance schemes administered by the Student Finance Office (SFO) under the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency.

Non-means-tested Loan Scheme for Post-secondary Students (NLSPS). Loans are available to cover the tuition fees payable (up to annual tuition fee payable for the course under application).
Continuing Education Fund (CEF). Many of our courses have been approved as reimbursable courses under the CEF set up by the Hong Kong Government. To be eligible for consideration of fee reimbursement, the applicant must have completed the CEF-approved course in compliance with CEF regulations, having passed it at the threshold prescribed by the Office of the CEF, which may not be the same as the University’s pass threshold set for the course. Having satisfied the above and all other requirements of the Office of the CEF, which it may prescribe from time to time, eligible applicants will be reimbursed 80% of their fees, subject to a maximum sum of HK$10,000 (whichever is the lesser) on successful completion of a reimbursable course.
For the latest list of CEF-approved courses, you can visit http://www.wfsfaa.gov.hk/cef. Applicants can also call the CEF hotline at 3142 2277 (24 hours).
