Tuition Fee

As a self-funded programme, we charge the tuition fees of HK$180,000 for local students and HK$198,000 for non-local students.

Admission to the MAAH makes overseas applicants eligible for a visa to study in Hong Kong. The university is not able to offer housing for MA students.

For incoming MA students demonstrating financial need, a limited number of scholarships may be available depending on funding (TBD for 2021-22 academic year). Applicants who wish to be eligible for these scholarships should they become available need to submit a scholarship application alongside applications for admission.

About our Scholarship

Need-based scholarships

For incoming MAAH students demonstrating financial need, the Department of Art History offers a limited number of scholarships. Each MA in Art History Scholarship pays a portion of the awardee’s MAAH tuition fee. The number and value of these Scholarships vary depending on each applicant’s financial situation and the amount of available funding, with a maximum possible award of 100% of the tuition fee. Applications are considered along with applications for admission, and scholarship offers are sent out with admission offers.

Eligibility

Applicants for the Scholarship must demonstrate that paying the full tuition fee would cause them financial hardship. This requires answering detailed questions about their financial situation on the application form and submitting authentic financial records to verify their claims. In cases where funding is insufficient to fund all students in need, the selection committee will give preference based on academic merit.
