HKBU Sponsorship Scheme for the IELTS Test 2020-2021

To encourage students to take the IELTS Test, HKBU will provide full reimbursement of the IELTS test fee for students who take the IELTS Test (Academic Module).


HKBU students enrolled on a UGC-funded undergraduate programme who have obtained an overall band score of 7 or above in the IELTS Test (Academic Module) taken between 1 May 2020 and 15 June 2021 may apply. To maximize the number of students who will benefit from the scheme, each student is allowed to submit one application only in the academic year.
