    Topics like auditing, Hong Kong business and company law, cost, and management accounting are some of the topics that I am wanted to study. Thus after a research work, I took admission to the university. Each and every module that is included in my program is essential to achieve the desired skills. Hence taking admission at Lingnan University proved the right decision for me. I applied to the university with the help of JUPAS that cost me $200. Along with the JUPAS fee I also paid $400 for the visa charges.

    Scholarship :

    Field Trip Sponsorships, fellowships, and grants are some of the financial assistance provided by the university. I too have applied for the "Entrance" Sponsorship. And luckily I got selected for it.
