Study subsidy to launch

November 29, 2022

The Education Bureau today announced that it will subsidise, through the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors, 2,238 places in 29 sub-degree programmes of eight post-secondary institutions for the cohort to be admitted in the 2023-24 academic year.


These 29 designated sub-degree programmes fall under six disciplines identified as having keen manpower demand, namely architecture and engineering, computer science, creative industries, healthcare, sports and recreation, and tourism and hospitality.


In the 2023-24 academic year, the annual subsidy amount for laboratory-based sub-degree programmes will be increased from $38,520 in the 2022-23 academic year to $39,140, while that for non-laboratory-based sub-degree programmes will be increased from $22,120 to $22,480.

The adjusted subsidy amounts are applicable to eligible new and current students.


For admission to the designated sub-degree programmes, students can apply directly to the institutions.


As announced in the Chief Executive's 2022 Policy Address, the scheme will be extended to top-up degree programmes from the 2023-24 academic year. Details are expected to be announced by the end of the year.
