November 28, 2023

The Education Bureau today announced that it will subsidise 2,330 places in 32 sub-degree programmes of eight post-secondary institutions for the cohort to be admitted in the 2024-25 academic year under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors.


The 32 designated sub-degree programmes fall under six disciplines identified as having keen manpower demand, including architecture and engineering, computer science, creative industries, healthcare, sports and recreation, and tourism and hospitality.


In the 2024-25 academic year, the annual subsidy amount for laboratory-based programmes will be increased from $39,140 in the 2023-24 academic year to $39,890, while that for non-laboratory-based programmes will be increased from $22,480 to $22,910.


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


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


The designated undergraduate programmes under the scheme in the 2024-25 academic year, including the number of subsidised places and the subsidy amounts were announced on September 19.
