[Subsidy] Any Subsidy for Studying in the Mainland?
Definitely! There is a subsidy scheme for Hong Kong students who are pursuing studies in the Mainland.
To ensure that no students will be deprived of post-secondary education for financial reasons, the Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme (MUSSS) is available for Hong Kong students.
Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme
The MUSSS is available for eligible Hong Kong students pursuing undergraduate studies in 193 designated Mainland institutions. The MUSSS comprises two components: “means-tested subsidy” and “non-means-tested subsidy”. The subsidised period is the normal duration of the undergraduate programme pursued by the student concerned in a designated Mainland institution, and the subsidy is granted on a yearly basis. Eligible applicants can only receive either a means-tested subsidy or a non-means-tested subsidy in a given academic year. The MUSSS is not subject to any quota.
Students may submit applications through the MUSSS Electronic Application Platform or by post.
New applicants must submit their applications via the MUSSS Electronic Application Platform or send the completed application forms and supporting documents by post to the Education Bureau on or before 8 September 2023.
Higher education institutions in the Mainland also offer their own scholarships, grants, fee remission, etc. For details and requirements, please refer to the information from individual institutions.
