Study Subsidy Scheme
for Designated Professions/Sectors  (SSSDP)

The Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions / Sectors (SSSDP) is a new subsidy scheme initiated by the HKSAR Government to subsidise about 1,000 students per cohort to pursue designated full-time locally-accredited self-financing undergraduate programmes in selected disciplines to nurture talents to meet Hong Kong’s social and economic needs.

Starting from 2018/19 academic year, the Scheme would be regularized and more HKMU programmes have been selected, covering a wider range of academic disciplines including different bachelor degree programmes from creative arts and film arts and they are:

  • Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in Animation and Visual Effects

  • Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in Imaging Design and Digital Art

The number of subsidised places offered by the University has been significantly increased, benefiting more local students. For details, please refer to Programmes under ‘Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors’ for HKMU Intake.
