Summer Institute (SI)

Academic Courses

The CUHK Summer Institute offers a wide variety of courses that cover topics in arts, business administration, education, engineering, law, medicine, science and social science which are specially designed for senior secondary school students as previews of university-level studies. You will be able to explore various subject areas through these short courses, which will be taught by outstanding CUHK faculty members. You will take two courses, one in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Each course, consisting approximately 15 contact hours (including lectures, tutorials and/or laboratory sessions and a final assessment), has six sessions with each session lasting for about 2.5 hours.
