The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid is a central unit responsible for the administration of University scholarships and financial aid schemes.
With the generous donations from numerous donors, the University offers a number of scholarships, prizes and academic awards to recognize and encourage students who have demonstrated academic excellence and outstanding performance in other areas, such as creativity, community services and leadership.
Each year, the University offers Admission Scholarships to outstanding local and non-local undergraduate entrants. For details, please click here .
