Undergraduate subsidies set

The Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors will subsidise 3,265 places in 47 undergraduate programmes of eight post-secondary institutions in the 2023-24 academic year, the Government announced today.   The programmes are for 10 disciplines that have keen manpower demand.   The disciplines are: architecture and engineering, computer science, creative industries, fintech, healthcare, insurance, logistics, sports and recreation, testing and certification, and tourism and hospitality.   The programmes include the four applied degrees selected for the Pilot Project on the Development of Applied Degree Programmes.   The Education Bureau determined the programmes and number of places to be subsidised under the scheme after consulting relevant policy bureaus and departments.   In the 2023-24 academic year, the annual subsidy amount for laboratory-based programmes will be increased from $77,040 in the 2022-23 academic year to $78,280, while that for non-laboratory-based programmes will be increased from $44,240 to $44,950.   The scheme was launched in the 2015-16 academic year to assist students to pursue designated full-time locally accredited self-financing undergraduate programmes in selected disciplines and encourage the self-financing post-secondary education sector to offer programmes in selected disciplines that meet Hong Kong's social and economic needs.   The scope of the scheme was expanded from the 2019-20 academic year to benefit students enrolling in designated sub-degree programmes.
