Short-term Study Abroad

In addition to the Summer Exchange Programme, a number of other short-term study-abroad (fee-paying) options are offered by non-CUHK units:

Summer Programmes at Partner Institutions

CUHK students looking for short-term overseas experiential learning opportunities can apply to summer programmes offered by CUHK’s partner institutions directly. 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. Fees should be paid directly to the host institution. 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.
