II. Bursaries and Financial Aid
The College offers a number of bursaries and financial aid to local students who cannot get sufficient financial assistance under the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme - Publicly Funded Programmes (TSFS) provided by the Government. As College bursaries and financial aid are a supplement to Government assistance, students are encouraged to apply for the TSFS first.
Application for College bursaries and financial aid are open generally in each September, but students with emergency needs due to sudden family changes or other special reasons can contact Ms. Edith Tsang of the Dean of Students' Office to apply for emergency assistance any time throughout the year. Non-local students are also welcome to approach our office should they have any financial difficulty.
Below is the list of bursaries and financial aid provided by the College, the University and also the Government:
III. Tuition Deferment
