Study Abroad Options

Studying abroad is a great experience.  There are many options available to you. Below is a summary. Click on the category to understand more about how it works.

Term-time Exchange

Exchange students remain enrolled at HKUST and are also enrolled into a host institution overseas. They continue to pay their tuition fees to HKUST and do not pay any tuition fees to their host university. They are nominated by HKUST and receive assistance to arrange their study overseas.

Summer Study Abroad/Exchange

Summer is a great time for studying abroad. Institutions around the world offer a diverse range of programs in the summer. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider studying abroad in the summer:

  • In the summer, you have the flexibility to choose either to pursue programs related to your major or programs in a field outside of your major that you have long developed an interest for.
  • In the summer, there are programs that are long (lasting around 8 weeks) and programs that are short (2-4 weeks). You can choose programs according to your needs.
  • You may already have gone or will go on term-time exchange. Summer study abroad at another destination will further enrich your global experience
  • If you are uncertain about studying abroad or whether you are ready to spend a full term abroad, summer study abroad in a shorter program will be a good taster. If you like it, you can come back and apply for term-time exchange.
  • If you have other commitments which mean you can't be away for a term or longer for term-time exchange, or if your finances are limited, summer study abroad in a shorter program is perfect for you.
