Students may participate in one of the Worldwide Plus Visiting Programmes for one semester or one academic year. Different from exchange programmes, students will need to pay full academic tuition fees for the programme.

 

HKU has expanded the Visiting Programmes partnership to include the below institutions. All visiting students joining any of these programmes attend classes with local students at the host institution, live in residential colleges with them and take part in extra-curricular activities usually only available to local students, while also enjoying the exciting study abroad experience.

Worldwide Plus Visiting Scholarship

The HKU Worldwide Visiting Scholarship is to be awarded to full-time undergraduate students to study for the fee-paying visiting programme at a listed overseas university for either one semester or one academic year. 

 

Value of Scholarship 

The amount of scholarships for visiting programmes should be HK$100,000 for one academic year programme

 

For merit-based funding provided by Registry offices in support of study abroad, each student is only eligible to receive a value that equals the largest award. Should the student receive more than one award, he/she may be required to return the prior award to the University. This is to ensure that scholarship funds benefit more than a small number of students.

 

Important Note

Successful applicants will automatically be considered for the eligibility of the scholarship.
