How to Apply

Eligible candidates should first make an initial application online through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) Electronic System to obtain a HKPFS reference number by 1 December 2012 at Hong Kong Time 12:00:00 (GMT +8 hours) before submitting applications for PhD admission to their chosen institutions.

Applicants may choose up to two programmes / departments at one or two institutions for PhD study under HKPFS 2013/14. They should therefore comply with the admission requirements of their selected institutions and programmes.

As the deadlines for applications to some of the institutions immediately follow that of the initial application, candidates should submit initial applications as early as possible to ensure that they have sufficient time to submit applications to institutions.
