Students admitted to an exclusively UGC-funded full-time curriculum who need financial assistance for their studies at the University are strongly encouraged to apply for the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme (TSFS), a means-tested grant and loan scheme administered by the Hong Kong Government Student Finance Office (SFO). To qualify for assistance they must have the right of abode in Hong Kong or have resided in Hong Kong continuously for three years before admission to the University, not including holders of student visas. Information is available from the SFO website.

Full-time and part-time students who meet the residency requirements can also apply for a non-means tested loan. Information is also available from the SFO website.
