Composition Fees

The composition fee for each 6-credit course is HK$13,000. Project has a composition fee of HK$26,000 and the Dissertation has a composition fee of HK$52,000. Total composition fee for the two study modes are therefore as follows:

10 courses + Project:
(HK$13,000 x 10) + (HK$26,000) = HK$156,000

8 Courses + Dissertation:
(HK$13,000 x 8) + (HK$52,000) = HK$156,000

Students who select to study a course from the MSc(ECom&IComp) and MSc(Eng) programmes have to pay HK$13,000 and HK$12,000 respectively per 6-credit course.

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)

Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme

The Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme is introduced by the HKSAR Government with the aim to attract local students to pursue further studies in priority areas contributive for the strategic development of Hong Kong.  Administered under the University Grants Committee (UGC), the fellowship places have been allocated for Master of Science in Computer Science in The University of Hong Kong in the 2021/22 academic year.

Eligibility

Local studentsi who are admittedii to the Master of Science in Computer Science in full-time and part-time study mode for the 2021-22 Intake are eligible to apply for the Scheme.  To avoid double subsidy, students who are receiving other forms of government scholarships (except student financial assistance) for pursuing the same programme are not eligible to apply.

Notes:

i. The definitions of local and non-local students remain the same as that of other UGC-funded programmes. Except for students holding (i) student visa/entry permit; (ii) visa/entry permit under the Immigration Arrangements for non-local graduates; or (iii) dependent visa/entry permit who were 18 years old or above when they were issued with such visa/entry permit by the Director of Immigration, all other students will be treated as local students.

ii. Only applicants who have got an admission offer, accepted the offer and settled the deposit will be considered for the Scheme.

Award

9 fellowships will be awarded.  The fellowship students are required to pay a minimum tuition fee of HK$42,100, which is the prevailing rate of the UGC-funded programmes, and the differences will be subsidized by the fellowships subject to a cap of HK$120,000 for each student regardless of the actual study period of the programme.

Scenarios:

• If the total tuition fee of a programme is HK$162,100 or below, the fellowship students will need to pay a tuition fee of HK$42,100, with the remainder covered by the fellowship.

• If the total tuition fee of a programme exceeds HK$162,100, the fellowship students will need to pay a tuition fee of HK$42,100, as well as the balance after deducting the maximum amount of the fellowship (i.e. HK$120,000).

Assessment Criteria

The award of the fellowships will take into account the students' academic achievements, professional qualifications, relevant working experience and achievements in other areas, language proficiency, interview performance as well as the proposal submitted by students on how they can contribute to the priority area (i.e. STEM) of Hong Kong after completing the Master of Science in Computer Science Programme.
