Faculty Student Mobility Fund (UG)

Faculty Student Mobility Fund (UG)

Objective and Overview

With a view to encouraging student mobility and aligning with the University’s targets listed in the University’s Academic Development Proposal 2016-19, the Faculty of Arts is pleased to offer the Faculty Student Mobility Fund (FSMF) to Arts students (BA, BA&BEd and BA&LLB) in need, who plan to participate in and have demonstrated commitment to the proposed mainland China (ML) and international (INT) learning experience (activity) starting from the academic year 2017-18.

Students are advised to apply for funding support from the University and the government in the first instance (please refer to the HKU Horizons webpage http://tl.hku.hk/horizons/). Since the FSMF cannot be held concurrently with other funding sources (e.g. HKU, government) for financing the same ML/INT learning activity, failing which applicants are required to report to the Faculty in writing immediately, withdraw the application, and if applicable, return the reimbursed amount back to the Faculty. Therefore, students are advised to make a well-informed choice before applying for the FSMF.
