Application Renewal Fee

A non-refundable application renewal fee of HK$500 will be charged to ensure the applicant remains on the wait list for a further year.

Assessment Fee

Students attending assessments are required to pay a non-refundable assessment fee of HK$500 per student.  The need for an assessment will be determined after the application has been reviewed by the School.

There may be a requirement for Secondary students, whose native language is not English, to attend a standardised English assessment.  Please contact the Admissions Office for further information.

  1. Tuition fees are based on a per annum charge and, unless other arrangements have been made, the preferred means of payment is by ten (10) equal monthly payments via Autopay (February to November inclusive). Please complete an Autopay form available from the Admissions Office and return it six weeks before commencement. (It will usually take six (6) weeks to set up). No receipts will be issued for Autopay payments.
  2. A 10% discount will be applied to the third and subsequent child/ren in a family enrolled at AISHK. (The discount will be applied to the youngest child/ren in the family).
  3. No reduction in tuition fees will be made for any absences.
  4. If fee payments are overdue, a student may be excluded from school. Once excluded, students will not be re-admitted until all arrears are cleared.

Capital Levy

The payment of the Capital Levy is mandatory if a debenture is not held for the student. The levy amount is reviewed each year. In 2020 and 2021 the Capital Levy is HK$21,840 per student per annum. The capital levy is payable annually.

Depreciating Debentures

The value of the depreciating debenture in 2020 and 2021 is $120,000 per student. A depreciating debenture must be purchased, in addition to the annual tuition fee. A Depreciating debenture is depreciated by 12.5% of the Initial Principal Sum at the beginning of each school year (1 January) for eight years. Once a debenture has depreciated in full over eight years, a new debenture must be purchased per student. If a student starts during a school year, depreciation on a pro-rata basis will be charged for the first year only. The full depreciating rate per annum will apply thereafter. Debentures depreciate on an annual basis. They may depreciate to zero or be partially refunded when your child leaves the School before the debenture is fully depreciated. Under certain circumstances an arrangement may be made to purchase a debenture by four (4) monthly instalments. Please contact our Business Administrator if you wish to discuss this option.

Reservation Deposit

A reservation deposit of HK$10,000 is required at the time of acceptance of an enrollment. This deposit is credited to the annual tuition fee, when the student commences at the school. Where a debenture is available for a new enrollment, the lodgement of a debenture or the payment of the capital levy will be additional to the requirement to pay the reservation fee.  Enrollment becomes final only after the school has received the reservation deposit and the debenture/capital levy payment.

Reservation deposits for new students are only refunded if the school receives written notification (email or fax is acceptable) of a student’s cancellation, or change of requested start date, within seven (7) days after the payment is received. This deadline is strictly adhered to.

Student Withdrawal

To withdraw a student, notice in writing must be addressed to the Head of School and submitted to the Admissions Office not less than one term or three months before the student leaves.  For students who will not return to AISHK after the Christmas (end of school year) holidays, official notice should be given no later than the last day of Term 3. The Australian International School Foundation Limited will charge tuition fees if the above period of notice is not adhered to, counting from the day of receipt of the official written notice of withdrawal. The fee penalty will be based on one term’s fees. Where a student withdraws during a school year the full year’s capital levy will be payable. In the case of outstanding school fees and other unpaid invoices, the school reserves the right to withhold the school report of the student(s) concerned

Year 12 Students

As Year 12 is a student’s final year at the school, there is no need to provide the Admissions Office with written notification as is normally the case with students leaving from other year levels. 

A letter together with a Departing Student Checklist Form will be sent to the parents to advise the withdrawal procedures required. For parents who have purchased debentures, they will be given an option to donate either a portion of their debenture or the entire amount to the school.
