Non-local applicants are those who need to apply for a student visa to study in Hong Kong. Applicants holding the following visa types are also considered as non-local applicants:
a visitor or tourist visa; OR
an Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macao (EEP); OR
a non-local graduate who stays in Hong Kong under the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates (IANG)
The levels of tuition fees for local and non-local students are different for our Taught Postgraduate programmes. It is therefore important for applicants to indicate their visa status correctly when they submit their application(s).
Non-local students of our Taught Postgraduate programmes are normally not eligible for government grants and loans. Therefore students have to ensure that they have sufficient funds to cover tuition fees, accommodation and other expenses, including medical insurance.
