Summer-to-summer exchange programmes are offered with various overseas institutions that allow undergraduate students to take credit-bearing courses overseas during the summer holiday. Students can choose courses from a variety of disciplines, including arts, business, engineering, law, science and social sciences, as well as getting the opportunity to explore the host country and its culture. OAL arranges pre-departure briefing sessions for students to learn practical information and important notes before, during and after exchange. The information for Summer Exchange (physical) is available here and for Summer Exchange (virtual) is available here.

Some programmes have specific course-registration requirements; students should check the individual programme’s website for details.
CUHK students do not need to pay additional tuition fees for the summer programme, but they might need to pay an accommodation and/or programme fee to the host institution. Programme fees include support and services for exchange students, such as access to libraries, home internet, class materials, breakfast and lunch on weekdays, and cultural activities. Accommodation and programme fees vary by programme and are determined by the host institutions.
