    I'm considering practicing as a lawyer in Hong Kong and either dual qualifying in England (by transferring to the english and welsh bar later) or staying over there. Either way i need to study the postgraduate certificate in laws (PCLL) and heres my question, there are two types of fees:
    I) government/UGC funded
    II) self-financed

    So far as I can tell either can be taken up by local or international students, now does anyone know what government/UGC funded means? Does it means the government pays for your studies or there's a discount of some kind or? It's confusing as while some unis charge less to self-financed students others charge more and theres no information, anywhere, on what the two terms mean.

    I've looked at HKU before and the long and short of what I interpreted from it is that international students (i.e., people outside of Australasia) are self-funded.

    Do you already have an LL.B?

    In a years time as I'm in my third of four years.

    Thanks for your help, I reckon I'll just go to cityU much cheaper and the programs not bad.

    I mean at city u UGC funded for non local students is only 100k compared to 134k for self funded, so it's odd but a lot cheaper plus there are more scholarships by far.

    Hi

    in normal case if you are international stduent you cant not apply Hong Kong goverment funds. basicly student in Hong Kong also hard to get funds from the goverment either.

    I will strongly recommend you to choose Hong Kong university, this is the top one in Hong Kong, I understand City Uni is cheaper but I wont recommended.
    City Uni is easy to get in and the ranking is not high at all.

    I am from Hong Kong and I am study in the UK at the moment, my girl friend is studying LLB in the UK as well. If you got a LLB, is easy and cheaper to do a convertion in Hong Kong university.
