About The Program

Spend the summer developing hands-on research skills and knowledge at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. An excellent starting point for graduate work or a professional career, research areas in science, engineering, humanities, or social sciences. Throughout your project, interact with a faculty supervisor experienced in international research. Rather than formal courses or lectures, you’ll conduct analysis work in the lab or the field. Hong Kong is an expatriate-friendly city and major travel hub to neighboring Asian countries. The campus is in a beautiful area with panoramic views of the harbor and the mountains. During downtime, you can climb Victoria Peak or treat yourself to some delicious local cuisine.
