Summer research abroad at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) offers a unique opportunity for undergraduates to conduct research under the direction of a CUHK faculty member. The experience is similar to a summer research program at your home UC campus and will serve as an excellent academic foundation for those considering graduate study or research in the future. CUHK is a leading research university with global vision that combines tradition with modernity, and integrates China with the West.
This program is designed to help undergrads from a range of majors develop hands-on research skills and knowledge of the topic under investigation. Fields available depend on faculty interests. These may include engineering and medicine, life science, math or chemistry, along with select social sciences, education or psychology.
Multicultural CUHK is a peaceful refuge from the bustling city of Hong Kong. The spacious campus setting has a unique college structure that fosters interaction with all students of diverse origin, background and interests. CUHK is located 45 minutes (by train and subway) from downtown Hong Kong, near Shatin in the New Territories.
