Applicants who wish to be considered for PolyU Entry Scholarship should complete an application form via eAdmission. Those who are awarded the merit-based scholarships will be notified when they are offered a place at PolyU.

The Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies and the Department of English of the Faculty of Humanities offer additional scholarships to outstanding international students based on their academic merit and interview performance.

These scholarships are for students who are already studying at PolyU and are awarded on the basis of academic and/or non-academic achievements. These scholarships are normally awarded on academic merit and/or according to other specific conditions as stipulated by the donors.
