  1. Fees paid are neither refundable nor transferable. However, if an applicant of undergraduate programmes obtains a UGC-funded place in a full-time degree programme from a UGC-funded institution in Hong Kong, IC will make full refund of the tuition fee paid upon request:
    a. The request for refund must be made in writing to the Administrative Officer of IC before the commencement of the relevant programme.
    b. The refund process may take up to two months after the submission of the written request.
    c. The application fee is not refundable.
    d. Where a refund is approved, fees paid by cash, EPS or cheque will normally be reimbursed by a cheque, and fees paid by credit card will normally be reimbursed to the payment cardholder’s credit card account. Applicant will be asked to confirm the refund details in case the account payee and mailing address (for cheque refund) / cardholder (for credit card refund) is not the applicant himself.
  2. Receipts will be issued for fees paid but HKU SPACE will not be responsible for any loss of receipt sent by mail. The receipt(s) is not a guarantee that your application is successful.

6. Additional Notes to Non-Hong Kong Resident Applicants

To study in Hong Kong, all non-local applicants are required to obtain a student visa issued by the Immigration Department of the HKSAR Government, except for those admitted to Hong Kong as dependants, who do not need prior approval before taking up full-time and part-time studies. Non-local applicants issued with a valid employment visa also do not need prior approval to pursue part-time studies. It is the responsibility of individual applicants to make appropriate visa arrangements. Admission to a HKU SPACE academic programme/course does not guarantee the issue of a student visa. Applicants may wish to note that part-time courses are not considered by the Immigration Department for visa purposes except for self-financed, part-time locally accredited taught postgraduate programmes awarded within the HKU system through HKU SPACE.
