Default Higher Education in Hong Kong

Can somebody update me about the process if somebody want to do his higher studies from Hong Kong? What is the average cost of education and cost of living over there? Is there any requirement of language test to get admission in any university at Hong Kong for higher education?

Default Re: Higher Education in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has 12 degree-awarding higher education institutions. They include seven universities and a teacher training institution funded by the University Grants Committee. The other four institutions are the Open University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, the Hong Kong Shue Yan College and Chu Hoi College of Higher Education. All universities offer 35 to 50 different academic programs at the bachelor's and master's degree levels. For most of the Universities in Hong Kong the, academic year is from September to August. In the case of Polytechnics in Hong Kong, the dates vary.

Admission requirements
For degree or diploma progrmmes, foreign students have to satisfy the entrance requirements laid down by the university or polytechnic, as the case may be. However, there is a provision for exemption from this requirement and those who have completed at least a year of university study at a recognized university outside Hong Kong can apply for exemption. These details can be had from the respective university where a foreign student wishes to apply.

Language requirements
In order to study at a university in Hong Kong, you require good knowledge of English. However, in addition some working knowledge of Chinese is preferred for study in some programmes. Those interested in learning Chinese language courses (in Cantonese and Mandarin) can get in touch with the New Asia Yale-in-China Chinese language Centre at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Cost of Living
In a bustling metropolis such as Hong Kong, life doesn't come cheap. Rent, food, clothing, and other necessities are on par with the likes of New York or London. However, those of modest means needn't fret; transportation, telecommunications, and public healthcare cost significantly less than in Europe or North America. Furthermore, student discounts are available for essentials, such as Octopus cards. With careful planning, you can make the most of your Hong Kong experience and still have a few dollars left for extras like travel and fancy dinners out.

The tuition fees vary from one university to the other, but are usually between $70,000 and $80,000 Hong Kong Dollars per year.

If you live in University-provided residence halls or hostels, you'll pay a modest $5,000 (about $650 U.S.) to $14,000 (around $1,800 U.S.) per semester;
off-campus, expect to pay that much per month. You should estimate $30,000 - 60,000 ($3,850 - 7,700 US.) per year for additional costs, including food, leisure, transportation, and personal items, depending on how extravagantly you plan to live.

Accommodation: All institutions provide residential facilities.
