In preparing Hong Kong for the transition to a knowledge-based economy, the Government has set up the Continuing Education Fund (CEF) to subsidise adults with learning aspirations to pursue continuing education and training courses. Many courses offered by PolyU SPEED and other units of PolyU have been included in the list of reimbursable courses under the Fund. They fall into the following categories:

  • Business Services
  • Creative Industries
  • Design
  • Financial Services
  • Languages
  • Logistics
  • Tourism

Eligible applicants will be reimbursed 80% of their fees, subject to a maximum sum of HK$10,000 (whichever is the less), on successful completion of a reimbursable course. The fees for more than one reimbursable course may be reimbursed, subject to the maximum ceiling of HK$10,000 per applicant not being exceeded.


  • 商業服務
  • 創意工業
  • 設計
  • 金融服務業
  • 語文
  • 物流業

When to apply for CEF

Application for CEF must be made to the Office of the Continuing Education Fund (OCEF) before the programme / course commences. Late applications will not be accepted.

In case you fail to complete the initial course enrolled in, you are advised to apply for admission into and complete another reimbursable course within four years from the date the CEF application was approved. If you successfully complete other reimbursable course(s) within four years, you may claim reimbursement in respect of the completed course(s) without making an application to CEF again.
