Scope of the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP) was expanded from the 2019-20 academic year to benefit students enrolling in designated sub-degree programmes .

These 31 designated sub-degree programmes fall under six disciplines, namely architecture and engineering, computer science, creative industries, health care, sports and recreation, and tourism and hospitality. The subsidy amounts will be adjusted according to the movement of the Composite Consumer Price Index. The annual subsidy amounts for laboratory-based programmes and non-laboratory-based programmes will be increased to $37 300 and $21 400 respectively. Eligible students will pay tuition fees after netting off the subsidy. The tuition fee and more information of the programmes for the 2020/21 academic year will be available via SSSDP webpage.
