Date Mon, 7 Feb 2022
Time 14:30 - 15:30

To ensure that no post-secondary students will be denied access to exchange programmes due to a lack of financial means, SSE is set up by the Education Bureau (EDB) of the HKSAR to subsidise financially-needy students who are Hong Kong permanent residents and are enrolled in full-time locally-accredited top-up or full-degree programmes of CityU SCOPE to participate in outbound activities endorsed by the School, which comprise substantive teaching and learning elements.


Eligible Students: 

ONLY students of full-time Top-up and Full-degree programmes who are in receipt of means-tested student financial assistance from Student Financial Office (SFO) of the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency (WFSFAA) OR whose families are in receipt of the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) are eligible for this scheme. Applicants of the Extended Non-means-tested Loan Scheme (ENLS) are not eligible for the SSE.  

Eligible Activities:

 Activities that meet the following criteria are eligible for SSE:

· An outbound activity comprising substantive teaching and learning elements;

· To be held after the SSE application is approved, and on or before 31 August 2022, for the 2021/2022 academic year;

· Organised and/or endorsed by CityU SCOPE; and

· Last for at least 14 DAYS. (Travelling time back and forth between Hong Kong and the exchange destination SHOULD NOT be counted towards the duration of the exchange activity.)
