The continuation of the scholarships/tuition waivers for the 3rd and the 4th years are subject to the YGPA obtained at the College in the 2nd and 3rd academic years respectively:

YGPA# Value Actual annual tuition*
3.20 or above Full scholarship HK$0**
2.80 - 3.19 ½ tuition waiver HK$19,500
2.40 - 2.79 ​​ tuition waiver HK$36,000



^  The overall HKDSE point score is calculated by the results for English Language, Chinese Language, Mathematics (compulsory part), Liberal Studies and 1 best Elective subject.

* The subsidy of HK$30,000 from the HKSAR Government (NSS) has already been deducted from the actual amount of the annual tuition fee that a student is required to pay. For local students who meet the College admission requirements but are not eligible for the NSS, the College will offer them an additional subsidy of HK$30,000. Please refer to offer letter for details.

** The total value of scholarship/tuition waiver a student can receive together with other subsidies/awards provided by the College and/or other organisations (including the HKSAR Government) shall not exceed the total amount of the annual tuition fee for the academic year concerned. For example, a local Year 1 student who is awarded a Full Scholarship and is also eligible for the NSS will receive the maximum amount of HK$59,000 (HK$89,000 less HK$30,000).

# YGPA is Yearly Grade Point Average.

The local tuition fee is used above for illustration purpose. The amount of scholarship/tuition waiver is awarded on the basis of 10 courses or 30 credits for each academic year. If the number of courses taken is less than 10 or 30 credits for each academic year, the scholarship/tuition waiver will be awarded on a pro-rata basis. For Year 1 entry, students normally can complete their study in 4 years; the Scheme is valid only for 4 years. Enrolled new students will be offered the relevant scholarship/tuition waiver automatically. For details, please refer to offer letter.
