Subsidy to benefit more than 2000 sub-degree students!

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 . To meet keen manpower demand in specific industries,  the scheme will subsidise a total 2 416 places in 31 sub-degree programmes of six post-secondary institutions, namely Caritas Bianchi College of Careers, HKU SPACE Po Leung Kuk Stanley Ho Community College, Hong Kong College of Technology, The Open University of Hong Kong (including Li Ka Shing Institute of Professional and Continuing Education), Tung Wah College and YMCA College of Careers, for the 2020/21 academic year. 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.
