The Global Learning Fund is set up to support student-initiated global experience that is beneficial for students to

  • enhance their worldwide exposure and broaden their global perspectives
  • promote cross-ethnic and cross-cultural understanding, thus facilitating internationalisation

Under normal circumstances, the Fund is meant to subsidise part of the expenses in flight/train, accommodation, and meals during their non-credit–bearing learning trips / activities in the Chinese mainland or overseas. The applicants are required to bear on their own the rest of the expenses incurred in the trip.

To support students’ global experience during the COVID-19 pandemic when off-shore learning trips are limited* for the sake of students’ health and safety, the arrangements are as follows:

Activity Completion Period

Outbound Activities*

Online Activities

1 July –

29 Aug 2021

(1st round application)

Students who do not take vaccination are discouraged to travel abroad for outbound student activities.  Exceptional destinations are Mainland China (except those at-risk places that are temporarily inapplicable under the Return2hk Scheme), Macau and New Zealand.  

The Fund supports global learning activities self-initiated by students through online platforms. It may subsidise part of the expenses incurred from registration / participation fees. To be eligible, students without going abroad physically may plan the learning activities such as online conferences, seminars, courses and competitions that are non-credit-bearing activities and also not part of curriculum requirements.
