Coz at least u need 3500hkd a month just to eat and wash your cloth ..

    I'm a Permanent Resident so I'm eligible for a government loan. I was thinking about 8000 hkd to cover an entire month of my living expenses (assuming I would be able to get an apartment worth 2500-3000)

    I'm gonna go to HK first so probably for a year I have to live alone then when I have a stable place to live, he can join me.

    As you are PR, you've applied for government grants/loans, right?
    This is my second degree so I'm really not after the University life, I have experienced it before so my priority is just to finish the course.

    I was wondering if there are like loans for living expenses as well? (But adding that on top of tuition fee loans, repaying after graduation would be a pain)

    Even I don't know what he is thinking.

    Freelancing on the internet might be a solution.

    You can get a flatshare for that price, but you would have to live out in Tai O to get a whole apartment

    Can RTL holders get any money?

    Accomodation - Your university should be able to offer accomodation which should probably be cheaper.

    Working here - Your first degree should put you in a better position than an undergraduate. But I would also think that English tutoring is the easiest.

    Good luck.
