Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant

The UGC attaches great importance to quality teaching and learning. Annual provision of Teaching Development Grant and Language Enhancement Grant had been allocated to the UGC-funded universities since 1994 and 1991 respectively to enhance teaching quality and language proficiency of students.

Since the 2016-19 triennium, these two grants have been combined as the Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant (TDLEG) as a continuing signal of the UGC's recognition of the importance of both elements of teaching development and language enhancement, while allowing universities the flexibility to decide on the best use of the funding having regard to institutional needs.

In the 2022-25 triennium, the amount of TDLEG has increased to $819.8 million (around $273.3 million per annum), including $781.2 million for individual university's initiatives and $38.6 million of additional funding for inter-institutional collaborative activities to foster closer relationship among the universities for a more vibrant ecology for Hong Kong's higher education towards the common goal of encouraging excellence in teaching and learning.
