Financial Assistance
Postgraduate awards in the form of studentships are allocated to qualified full-time MPhil and PhD students of the University to provide them with financial assistance during the course of their study. Awards are based on availability of funds, academic merit and the suitability of the applicant for the proposed Program of study, as is the selection of applicants for admission to postgraduate studies.

The nature of these assignments may change from time to time according to need. Non local students should note that they are not allowed to work in Hong Kong, part-time or full-time.
