MOE Approves Three More Hong Kong Universities to Recruit in Mainland
In addition to the twelve Hong Kong universities recruiting in mainland China, the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) has approved a further three universities: Hang Seng University, Donghua University and the Hong Kong Higher Education S&T Institute. Universities recruiting prior to Gaokao have been given quotas ranging from 190 to over 300 by the MOE, and the rest are recruiting outside of the quota system (referred to as self-recruiting), using Gaokao results as references and conducting their own interviews.
Apart from those mentioned above, the other Hong Kong universities recruiting in mainland China are: the University of Hong Kong, the Open University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Shuren University, the Hong Kong University of S&T, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong Polytech University, Lingnan University, Hong Kong Education Institute, the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and the Chu Hai College of Higher Education. The University of Hong Kong’s tuition fee for undergraduate students is set to be HK$ 164,000 (USD21K), plus USD5,200 in living expenses. The university offers tuition for the top 1% of mainland candidates, and the application-acceptance ratio is 41:1.
A number of universities in Hong Kong also offer ”bridging programs” for students to study in the UK, US and Australia.
