Hong Kong university information

        It should be understood that the deadline for applying to Hong Kong universities varies, so it is better if applicants fill out the initial application form before applying to the university.


        Applicants who qualify for the HKPFS scholarship must first fill out the HKPFSES online initial application form (Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme Electronic System) to obtain the HKPFSES reference number. On the form, applicants can choose up to two study programs at one or two universities listed for the academic year 2022 – 2023. The deadline for applying for the 2022 HKPFS scholarship is 1 December 2022 at 12.00 Hong Kong time.

        The HKPFSES reference number that has been obtained is then included when applying to the PhD program at the chosen university. Otherwise, applicants will not be considered for the HKPFS scholarship.

        Registration to the university, including the requirements and the required application, please refer to the website of each university or program being applied for. Because they probably set different rules. Registration for the HKPFS scholarship is free of charge, but registration to the university, especially for the PhD program being applied for, may require a fee.
