Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP)

Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions / Sectors (SSSDP) for Academic Year 2024/25

SSSDP was launched as a new initiative under the 2014 Policy Address to subsidise about 1,000 students per cohort starting from the 2015/16 academic year to pursue designated full-time locally-accredited self-financing undergraduate programmes in selected disciplines.

 

It has been announced in the 2017 Policy Address that SSSDP would be regularised in the 2018/19 academic year with an increase in the number of subsidised places to about 3,000 per cohort.
