Registration Fee


Upon acceptance of an admission offer to the PhD/MPhil programme, you will be required to pay a registration fee of HK$5,000 before the payment deadline specified in the online Notice of Offer via eAdmission.  This registration fee is a non-refundable and non-transferrable.


This registration fee will be credited to your tuition fee, which will be payable upon your admission to the University.  For scholarship recipients who are not required to pay a tuition fee and students eligible for the tuition waiver scheme for local research students offered by the Hong Kong SAR Government, the registration fee will be refunded after admission.  Requests to waive or defer payment of the registration fee will not be considered.  The admission offer will lapse automatically if you fail to pay the registration fee by the stipulated deadline.


Tuition Waiver Scheme for Local Research Students


The Hong Kong SAR Government has launched a tuition waiver scheme and will provide a non-means-tested tuition waiver to all local students enrolled in UGC-funded research programmes with effect from 2018/19.
