Universities to recruit Taiwan students

Two prestigious Hong Kong universities were to hold admissions consultation meetings in Taiwan this weekend to recruit local students, write Stanley Cheung and Maia Huang for Focus Taiwan.

The University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) were each to offer scholarships of over NT$600,000 (US$20,200) per year to outstanding and disadvantaged students to pursue education in Hong Kong.

Grace Chow, CUHK director of admissions and financial aid, told CNA that the institution recruited 32 students last year after holding its first admissions meeting in Taiwan. The Taiwanese students have been excelling, Chow said, adding that the enrolment quota this year will be flexible and will depend on students' performance record.
