Failure to pay the required fees by the due dates without prior approval from the Institute will result in serious consequences including withholding the issue of academic documents, de-activation of student cards and suspension of access to the Institute's Library/other facilities/accommodation in the student hall. You will be treated as 'UNOFFICIALLY WITHDRAWN' from the programme and your student status will be suspended with immediate effect.

Full-time students in Undergraduate and Sub-degree Programmes/ University Grants Committee-funded Postgraduate Programmes are not required to apply for payment deferment if they have applied to the Student Financial Assistance Agency (“SFAA”) for  grant, loan and/ or non-means tested loan under the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme (“TSFS”), Financial Assistance Scheme for Post-secondary Students (“FASP”), Non-means-tested Loan Scheme for Full-time Tertiary Students (NLSFT) and/or Non-means-tested Loan Scheme for Post-secondary Students (NLSPS). The FO will receive from the Student Affairs Office ("SAO") a list of these students and when following up with the outstanding payments after due dates, the FO will take into consideration of these students' financial assistance applications and the expected dates they will receive the financial assistance from the SFAA to extend the due dates accordingly. The extended due dates will then be updated accordingly in MyIEd students' accounts, and students are responsible for checking their account balances and due dates in MyIEd from time to time. These financial assistance applications should be submitted to the SFAA through the SAO on time. Late submission of financial assistance applications after the Institutional Fees payment due date will not be granted payment deferment unless the concerned students have written to the FO with justification for the late submission.

Please note that there is no payment deferment for all part-time students. All students are advised to make financial planning with reference to the due dates of payment indicated above. The FO will handle special requests from students on a case-by-case basis. Only cases in which students are facing sudden and genuine financial hardship will be considered.

3. Tuition Fees Arrangements under Special Circumstances
1. Deferment of Studies

If your application for deferment of studies is submitted before the start of a semester or before the completion of the first half of a semester according to the academic calendar of the programme (completed week will be used for calculation), any tuition fees paid for the deferred semester(s) will be carried forward until you resume your studies. You are required to pay a continuation fee within two weeks upon approval. For details, please refer to the "Operational Guidelines Supporting General Academic Regulations" in the Student Handbook.

If your application for deferment of studies is received after the first half of a semester, the tuition fees paid for the deferred semester will not be refunded nor carried forward to the resumed semester.


2. Add/Drop of courses


You should complete add/drop of courses within the period set by the programmes. If your tuition is charged according to the number of credits taken in the semester, you are required to pay the full tuition for any courses dropped after the add/drop period of the programmes.


3. Withdrawal of Studies


You are required to pay the full tuition fees for the whole semester regardless of your date of withdrawal in the semester.


4. Extension Beyond Normal Period of Study


If you have to extend your normal period of study to take outstanding course(s) to complete the programme, you will have to pay additional fees on a pro-rata basis according to the number of courses/credit points (including Field Experience) taken in the extended period of study.

Students of Research Postgraduate Programmes, who need to extend their study beyond the normal study period, and students who take Major Project/ Thesis/ Dissertation/ Research Project (“the Project Course”) of Master of Arts (Contemporary Studio Art and Criticism in Education)/ Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology (School and Community Settings)/ Master of Education (MEd) Programmes, and need to extend the Project course beyond its stipulated study period as specified by the respective programme, are required to pay an Extension Fee. For details of the Extension Fee, please refer to Point 1.6 “Other Fees” of this Chapter and individual Programme Handbook.



5. Fast Track Study


If you have completed all the graduation requirements of a programme faster than the normal period of study, you are still required to pay the full tuition fees of the programme. No reduction of tuition fees nor refund of fees will be arranged despite the shortened period of study time. 


6. Credit Transfer

Upon approval of credit transfer, students still have to pay full tuition fee irrespective of the number of credit point(s) being transferred. However, tuition fee would not be charged for course(s) granted credit transfer if the fee is charged according to the number of credits taken.


7. Student Contribution to Overseas Student Activities (OSA)

In addition to the tuition fees paid, students have to make contribution for participating in Overseas Student Activities (OSA) including various immersion programmes, regional summer institute, student exchange programmes, and study visits. Some of these OSA are compulsory (which can be credit-bearing or non credit-bearing) and students have to participate in order to fulfill the graduation requirements. The following are examples of compulsory OSA:

Postgraduate English Language Immersion Programme
Postgraduate Putonghua Language Immersion Programme
BEd (EL) English Language Study Abroad Semesters
BEd (CL) Putonghua Language Immersion Programme
Regional Summer Institute for BSocSc(GES)
Regional Summer Institute for BACAC

Some of the OSA are optional or non-credit-bearing. They include:

Study visits
Student exchange programmes

The percentage of student contribution to the total cost of OSA is shown in the following table:

  Students' Contribution Percentage to
Total Cost of OSA (“OSA fees”)
Pre-service Students In-service Students
Compulsory OSA Not less than 18% of the best estimated unit cost of the OSA* Not less than 30% of the best estimated unit cost of the OSA
Optional or Non-credit-bearing OSA e.g., optional language immersion programmes, study visits, etc. Not less than 50% of the best estimated unit cost of the OSA Not less than 75% of the best estimated unit cost of the OSA

These Student Contribution Percentages to Total Cost of OSA (or OSA fees) only apply to Full-Time students studying UGC-funded undergraduate programmes.

All OSA fees must be settled prior to the commencement of the respective OSA. Pre-service students who have financial difficulties in fulfilling the student contribution of compulsory and credit-bearing OSA can apply for financial assistance from the Student Financial Assistance Agency (“SFAA”). (Note that SFAA will not provide financial assistance for optional OSA.) Based on past experience, pre-service students who are successful applicants of the government “Tertiary Student Finance Scheme – Publicly-funded Programmes” (“TSFS”) may be provided with additional grant by the SFAA after completion of the compulsory and credit-bearing OSA. The amount of additional grant is based on the result of vetting of students' TSFS application, and in terms of reimbursement to students' prior expenses incurred. Separate application to SFAA for the additional grant is not required. 


4. Financial Assistance

The Student Financial Assistance Agency (SFAA) of the Government provides means-tested financial assistance to full-time needy students through the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme - Publicly-funded Programmes (TSFS) or Financial Assistance Scheme for Post-secondary Students (FASP) in the form of a grant and/or loan. The grant is to cover tuition fees and academic expenses. Compulsory students' union fees are also covered under TSFS. The loan is for living expenses and is interest-bearing at 1.0% per annum chargeable from the commencement of the repayment period which begins upon a student's graduation or leaving the Institute. 

Students up to the first degree level who are successful applicants of the TSFS or FASP and reside beyond 10 minutes' walking distance from the campus during term time and travelling to the campus by public transport may be eligible for a travel subsidy. Additional financial assistance in the form of grant may be awarded to the TSFS applicants if they are required to participate in overseas compulsory field trips which constitute an essential part of the programme. Additional loans may also be granted to students who cannot afford to pay the expenses incurred from block teaching practice.

The SFAA also provides Non-means-tested Loan Schemes (NLS) for eligible full-time and part-time students. NLS loans are solely used to settle tuition fees. The NLS operates on a full-cost recovery basis. Interest rate is charged at the Government's no-gain-no-loss rate which is currently set at 3.409% (updated as at 1 July 2012) below the average best lending rate of the note-issuing banks, plus a risk-adjusted factor to cover the Government's risk in disbursing unsecured loans once the loan is drawn down and throughout the repayment period until the NLS loan is fully repaid. The NLS loan is repayable in 180 monthly installments within 15 years after graduation or termination of study. An annual administrative fee is chargeable for each application and thereafter until the NLS loan is fully repaid. The interest rate and administrative fee will be reviewed regularly. Students may apply for deferment of loan repayment if they have difficulties in repaying the loans due to further studies on full-time courses, financial hardship or serious illness.

Students applying for the three schemes should have the right of abode in Hong Kong or have resided or have had their homes in Hong Kong continuously for three complete years prior to the commencement of the programme. This does not cover students staying in Hong Kong holding student visas. Detailed information of the above schemes is available at http://www.sfaa.gov.hk/eng/schemes/pst.htm.
