Teaching Postgraduate Studentship (TPS)

The SHTM offers a Teaching Postgraduate Studentship (TPS) to selected full-time D.HTM students. These awards are competitive and are granted based on academic merit, financial need, previous research, and work experience. TPS recipients are expected to participate in teaching, research, administration, and other School activities.

Financial Support for Conference Attendance

The SHTM provides financial support on a competitive basis for D.HTM students to attend international conferences to present their research findings. The maximum support offered for an accepted paper is HKD10,000 to cover registration, travel and accommodation expenses related to conference attendance.

Non-means-tested Loan Scheme (NLS)

The NLS offers interest-bearing loans to local full-time and part-time students to cover tuition fees. These loans are not means-tested, which means that there is no assessment of family income and assets. Both government-funded and self-financed students can apply before the deadline set by the government. For more information on loans, please visit the Student Finance Office of the Hong Kong SAR government. 

Continuing Education Fund (CEF)

Three courses (HTM6002, HTM6004 and HTM6010) appear on the Continuing Education Fund (CEF) list of reimbursable courses. For these courses, eligible applicants will be reimbursed 80% of their fees, subject to a maximum sum of HKD25,000 (whichever is less), on successful completion of the course. Please visit the Hong Kong SAR government's Student Finance Office for more information.
