Composition Fees

The composition fee for each 6 credit-units in MSc(CompSc) is HK$11,000*.  The dissertation, which is equivalent to 24 credits, has a composition fee of HK$44,000*.  The total composition fees are therefore as follows:

48 credit-units (8 courses) + dissertation:
(HK$11,000* x 8) + (HK$44,000*) = HK$132,000*

Students who select to study a course from the MSc(ECom&IComp) programme have to pay HK$13,000* per 6-credit course.

* Subject to University approval

Fees for enrolled courses are paid on semester basis.  The first instalment of composition fees of 12 credit-units is payable at the time of acceptance of an offer of admission.

Generally composition fees for cancelled enrolment before specified deadline are not refunded, but can be used to pay for another enrolled course or carried over to the next semester as credit. (Subject to the approval by the University)
