The CUHK Summer Institute (SI) is a two-week credit-bearing summer programme held in July at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) campus. It brings together more than 300 enthusiastic learners from secondary schools in Hong Kong, mainland China and overseas to explore different academic fields at CUHK. The SI will not only challenge your inquisitive minds, it will also be an immersive experience into the lively CUHK campus for you.

  • Explore different subject areas through two short courses taught by renowned CUHK faculty members
  • Earn a maximum of two credits which will count towards undergraduate studies at CUHK in the future (with the exception of some programmes)
