Short-term Study Abroad

In addition to Summer Exchange Programmes, a number of short-term study-abroad (fee-paying) options are offered by CUHK partner institutions worldwide. Most of these programmes offer cultural and language courses or research projects, as well as field trips and social programmes. They’re a chance to immerse yourself in another culture while meeting students from around the globe. Students interested in these programmes can apply and pay fees to the host institution directly. If you have any questions about a programme, please contact the institution offering it. For further assistance, please contact OAL at iasp@cuhk.edu.hk.
