Tertiary Education

Tertiary institutions

There are eight tertiary institutions in Hong Kong funded by the University Grants Committee (UGC). The UGC Secretariat provides administrative support to the UGC, which advises the Government on the development and funding of tertiary education in Hong Kong and to administer Government grants to the UGC-funded tertiary education institutions.

University graduates employment


After graduation, you might start looking for jobs. Developed by the career centres of the tertiary institutions of Hong Kong with a grant from the UGC, the Joint Institution Job Information System (JIJIS) is a one-stop online career service for students.

Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts


Apart from the eight post-secondary institutions, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts is the only tertiary institution in Hong Kong providing professional education, training and research facilities in the performing arts, theatre technical arts, and film and television.

Grants and loans

To support the progressive increase in post-secondary education opportunities, a series of support measures for both students and providers of post-secondary programmes have been introduced by the Government. Among others, they include the provision of student grants and loans, as well as interest-free start-up loans for post-secondary education institutions. Visit the online information centre for information on the full-time self-financing post-secondary programmes at sub-degree levels (Associate Degree or Higher Diploma) or above, that meet the Government's quality requirements and other relevant information.
