Notes and Calculator


This programme enables you to obtain a rough assessment of the amount of bursaries you might obtain from the HKU PCLL Bursaries Scheme.

The amount of bursaries produced by this programme is for your reference only.  It is calculated from the income figures and the number of family members you enter below.  In your formal application, the information provided by you will be vetted and is subject to amendment if the information is found to be incorrect.  In addition, if documentary proofs provided are not substantiated (e.g. self-written statement of income or unexplained prolonged unemployment), the Scheme may need to make adjustments as it deems appropriate necessary.  Your actual entitlement may therefore vary from the figures produced by this programme.  The Department of Professional Legal Education accepts no liability for any loss or misrepresentation incurred by its use.


*Subject to downward adjustment with reference to personal/family savings and assets.
