HKUST Summer Study Abroad

Office of Global Learning 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 2 weeks to 10 weeks.

Eligibility

  • HKUST full-time undergraduate students. Year 1 and final year students are also eligible to apply. Please refer to the FAQs for more information.
  • Students who have participated in other summer programs offered by Office of Global Learning or Schools before can also apply. Special consideration may be given.
  • Have CGA 2.0 or above and will have completed Year 1 by the start of the program. Students with lower CGA may also apply. Offers may be given with special consideration.
  • Meet additional requirements set by the specific host institutions.
  • Students who have not withdrawn from any summer programs offered by Office of Global Learning in the past.

Program Categories

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

There are three types of programs:

  • 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. Credits are transferrable.
  • Summer Sponsored: These are sponsored programs offered by HKUST Office of Global Learning with an aim to encourage study abroad in destinations that are less familiar to HKUST students, with the view to further broadening the global opportunities offered to HKUST students. Tuition, accommodation and cultural program costs will be covered by HKUST. Students will be allowed to participate in Summer Sponsored program once only during the undergraduate study.

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 in Round 1, 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.
