HKUST Summer Study Abroad

GSPO offers you a wide range of summer programs for HKUST undergraduate students. Join one of the exchange, partnership or special programs which take place between June and August and span from 3 weeks to 10 weeks.

Eligibility

  • HKUST full-time undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
  • Students who have participated in HKUST Undergraduate Summer Study Abroad Program before can also apply but priority will be given to those who have not participated before; and
  • Will have completed Year 1 by the start of the program; and
  • CGA 2.0 or above (Students with lower CGA may also apply. Offers may be given with special consideration.); and
  • Additional requirements set by the specific host institutions; and
  • Students who have not been given an offer for HKUST Summer Study Abroad in the previous rounds.

About the Programs

  • Participation in these programs require HKUST nominiation. HKUST students must apply through the HKUST Global Student Programs Office. The host institutions do not accept applications directly from individual students.

About program categories

  • Summer Exchange: Students nominated for programs of the Exchange category will participate as Exchange Students. Participation in this program will be recorded on the HKUST official transcript. Tuition fee is waived by the host institution. Available quotas are relatively smaller.
  • Summer Partnership: HKUST partners with these top tier institutions to offer HKUST students summer study abroad opportunities with partnership benefits, which may include application fee waiver or tuition fee reductions. HKUST students must apply and be nominated by HKUST. The specifics of the partnership benefit for each program can be viewed by clicking on the below program links.

Tips on applying:

  • In order to meet the nomination deadlines as set by certain host institutions, HKUST may process certain applications in sequence. If quotas are filled after the Round 1 deadline, the program will not open for Round 2 applications. So, students are advised to apply early; preferably during Round 1.
  • If you are interested in a program where both Exchange and Partnership places are available, you may consider selecting both when you complete the program choices on your application.
