Summer Institute (SI)

Academic Courses

The CUHK Summer Institute offers a wide variety of online 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.

Students will be able to explore various subject areas through these short courses taught by outstanding CUHK faculty members. Students can take one or two courses, one in the morning and/or another one in the afternoon. Each course consists of 15 contact hours. Depends on the course design, course contents may include lectures, tutorials, discussions, laboratory demonstrations, quizzes and/or a final assessment.

Upon successful completion of the courses and fulfilling the requirements as specified by the courses, students may earn a maximum of two credits as free or major elective(s) which may count towards your undergraduate studies at CUHK in the future (with the exception of some programmes). See here to know more about how the credit system works.

In 2022, there are 18 online courses on offer. Courses will be conducted online with live lessons. Some face-to-face sessions may be arranged if the COVID-19 pandemic subsided in Hong Kong later.
