Chinese-Austrian EU Summer School

Since 2002, the Chinese Studies Center of the University of Salzburg and Eurasia-Pacific Uninet have organised the annual Chinese-Austrian EU Summer School for students from Chinese institutions. It’s designed for students who want to deepen their knowledge of Europe in general and Austria in particular. Lectures and workshops cover different aspects of European and Austrian history and culture, as well as the Austrian economy, its law and its politics. The school takes place mainly in Brussels, Vienna and Salzburg, with short trips to other nearby European cities. CUHK students can apply through the OAL, starting from April each year.

 

 

ACU Summer School

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) Summer School is a forum for talented university students to discuss multidisciplinary issues of global importance. Students in the final year of their undergraduate degree who expect to move to postgraduate study, or those already studying for a postgraduate degree are eligible to apply to attend. Qualifying students from ACU member institutions (including CUHK) are eligible to apply for subsidies.

The Summer School is hosted in a different country every year. ACU Summer School 2018 was hosted at CUHK from 1 to 9 July. Titled “Designing and Creating Sustainable Communities”, the Summer School attracted 45 bright-minded students from across the Commonwealth to the CUHK campus to discuss the issue with local and international experts in urban planning and developments.

ACU Summer School 2019 will be hosted by the University of Mauritius from 14 to 21 July. The theme of the Summer School will be “Public Health: from a small island state to the global community”. Application will open in November 2018. More details are available on the Summer School’s website.
