Dear Principal,

Prince Philip Scholarship tenable at Cambridge University – Information Seminar

Every year, through the Prince Philip Scholarship, The Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong support the most talented local young people to pursue their tertiary education in one of the most renowned universities in the world – Cambridge University. Subject to means testing, the Scholarship covers up to the full cost of all fees, accommodation and living expenses for a full undergraduate programme at the University. Since its inauguration in 1982, the Scholarship has supported over 165 Hong Kong students to undertake undergraduate studies at Cambridge University.

As part of our on-going effort to introduce Cambridge University and the Prince Philip Scholarship to students who are keen to challenge themselves, you or your representative and your students are cordially invited to attend the Prince Philip Scholarship Information Seminar. This year’s seminar will cover important information on application procedures, selection criteria and working schedule. In addition, the seminar will include details of the new system of common format written assessments for applicants, introduced by the Colleges of the University of Cambridge. The new arrangements will be in place for those applying for admission in 2017.


The seminar will be held from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on 7th September, 2016 (Wednesday) at The Auditorium, 7th Floor, BEA Tower, Millennium City 5, 418 Kwun Tong Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong (Kwun Tong MTR station, Exit A2). Representatives from the Scholarship’s Selection Committee (including professors from Cambridge University) will be present to meet you and your students to provide advice and information on admission to Cambridge. Current undergraduate students will also be there to share with your students their experience of Cambridge.
