Studying in Hong Kong

Education & Career Consultant in Mumbai, Karan Gupta Consulting

Hong Kong has been actively developing itself into an international education centre in recent years. 3 of its 20 higher education institutions are now considered world-class, and many of the others are moving rapidly up the league tables.
Hong Kong’s reputation means that it is very much in demand from the best Chinese students drawn by the high academic standards and the fact that English and Chinese are official languages. With many of the top universities teaching wholly in English demand for places has grown dramatically in the last 2 years and only the best applicants will succeed in their wish to study in Hong Kong.

General Information

Hong Kong’s education system is run by the Education Bureau and the Social Welfare Department. There are about eight internationally-recognized universities in Hong Kong which offer Associate, Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degrees which are government-funded. There are other institutions which offer post-secondary diplomas, certificates, and vocational training.

Research work in Hong Kong has grown substantially making the research activities in universities more advanced. The majority of students in Hong Kong are of Chinese origin and the number of international students is limited.

The Application Process

You will need to apply individually to the institutions of your choice. Places for international students are limited and a strong application form, personal statement and reference is vital to maximize your chances of success. If you are unsure about how to best present yourself in the application process, seek advice from an experienced overseas education consultant.

How much will it cost?

The average tuition fees are about HK$145,000 per year and the average living expenses are about HK$30,000 per year. Fees do vary from institution to institution and may be substantially higher for the most prestigious and popular postgraduate courses.

Funding, Scholarships and Loans

There are some scholarships and bursaries available to international students. Applicants are assessed by the individual institution and you will need to impress with an overall high quality of academic, extracurricular and personal strengths. A carefully crafted application will vastly increase your chances of receiving funds to study overseas in Hong Kong and you should seek advice from professionals experienced in international admissions if you are unsure of how best to proceed.

Student Employment

After studying in Hong Kong international students are permitted to apply for a work visa. The Hong Kong economy is comparatively small and competition is strong, so finding appropriate jobs in Hong Kong is not easy. Choosing the right degree will maximise your chances of success.
