Call to raise quota of mainland students at universities
Teddy Ng, Hong Kong Standard
May 28, 2005

Hong Kong should increase quotas for mainland students admitted to local universities to gain extra income and to broaden students' horizons, said the Trade Development Council.

The council said Friday Hong Kong's institutions should step up efforts to attract more mainland students.

About 45,000 mainland students study overseas every year, but only 2,510 chose to study in Hong Kong in the 2003-04 academic year. A survey conducted by the council found that 14 percent of 3,223 senior secondary students polled on the mainland wanted to study abroad.

The most popular courses stated were economics and management; information technology; science and mathematics; arts; English; humanities; engineering and social sciences.

Chinese University education administration and policy professor Hung Fan-sing, who conducted the survey, said mainland students believe higher education in Hong Kong offers international exposure and exchange, academic excellence and an English language environment.

They also believe SAR higher education will equip them to be qualified for both the local and mainland job markets.

Hung said many mainland parents preferred their children to study in Hong Kong because the SAR shares a similar culture to theirs.

The council's chief economist, Edward Leung, said the government should increase quotas for non-local students for undergraduate and postgraduate programs from 8-20 percent, charging a tuition of HK$80,000 a year.

He said the government should also allow universities to allocate 10 percent of its self-financed postgraduate program, also charging HK$80,000 for completion of the program, and to allocate 3,000 places of its associate degree program to mainland students, charging HK$45,000 a year.

Leung said this would generate HK$400 million in the first year, with HK$1.28 billion from the fourth year onwards.

He urged institutions to cooperate to promote local higher education on the mainland, including organizing exhibitions and briefings.

The council will participate in a higher education expo to be held in various mainland cities in October.

The government has recently allowed institutions to allocate 10 percent of associate degree places to students from Taiwan, Macau and the mainland.

63間免試招生 5840港生報讀內地大學
2012年03月06日(二)


【本報訊】內地六十三間大學免試招收港生計劃的網上申請昨截止,截至昨午已吸引近六千名「末代高考生」及中學文憑試考生申請。有升學專家指今年申請情況踴躍,估計學生希望「買保險」,多一個升學出路,不過建議考生入讀前需考慮修讀的專業範疇是否與日後升學及就業階梯脗合,切忌「一窩蜂」盲目申請。
料考生「買保險」

今年是「雙軌年」,近十萬名考生將同時競爭三萬個資助大學學額,內地大學是不少港生另一選擇。內地六十三間大學免試招收港生計劃的網上申請昨結束,中國教育留學交流中心表示,截至昨午五時,收到五千八百四十個申請,提醒申請考生需於本月十五日前往中心確認。

學友社社長伍德基指出,今年申請到內地升學的人數較往年多,估計不少考生希望「買保險」。他提醒考生「買保險」之餘,亦需按自己的能力及升學興趣選擇修讀科目,同時對中港兩地文化差異需有心理準備。
