The University has a long history of training students from Hong Kong in a wide range of disciplines such as medicine, law, social sciences, architecture, civil and mechanical engineering.
The similarities between the Hong Kong and UK education systems mean that Hong Kong students have direct access to all programmes, as long as entry requirements are met and students can demonstrate sufficient proficiency in English language.
The University currently has more than 400 students from Hong Kong. Our Hong Kong students apply across the full range of courses available at Manchester, with the following disciplines proving the most popular:
Ho Lam Chung
MSc Business Analysis and Strategic Management
Preparing for industry
Students from Hong Kong may apply for a Chevening Scholarship for taught master’s programmes.
The Croucher Foundation in Hong Kong offers scholarships, fellowships and research studentships for doctoral and post-doctoral students.
Furthermore, each year the University attracts more than £250 million of research funding from external sources and we invest a further £96 million of our own funds into research.
