Program Description:
PRIMO Hong Kong

If you are a first-year student and are interested in experiencing the Asian international cosmopolitan life and learn about the world's freest economy, you could study an exciting short summer course at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, first-year ANU students with Australian citizenship aged 18 to 28 can apply for a grant of AUD $3,000 to assist them with the program and living costs of this course. These grants are offered through ANU funded projects of the Australian Government New Colombo Plan Mobility Program.

The International Summer School runs from 24 June 2018 to 1 August 2018, where you can choose to study in a variety of courses in the following areas:
  • Business and management
  • China studies
  • Chinese language
  • Environment, science and technology
  • Humanities and social sciences
These courses offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in the multicultural lifestyles and learn about the business and trade of the world's freest economy, to interact with local and international students from around the world and engage with academics from Hong Kong's second oldest university. An optional field trip to Beijing is also offered for students who would like to visit China. 


Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, successful applicants will be automatically considered for one of the available grants. The program is funded under two grant schemes, the New Colombo Plan (NCP) and the Vice Chancellor’s Coursework Travel Grants.  Both grants are worth AUD $3,000 each.

To be eligible for one of the NCP grants, you must:

  • be an Australian citizen;
  • be between 18 and 28 years of age upon commencement of the study program.
  • be in your first year of undergraduate study at the time of the application;
  • seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant.

To be eligible for one of the VC Travel Grants, you must:
  • be in your first year of undergraduate study at the start of the program;
  • seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant.

The VC Travel Grants are available to both domestic and international students, but international students will be prioritised.

First year students are considered to be students who commenced undergraduate university study in 2018 and/or who have completed 48 units or less at the start of the program. Later-year students are welcome to apply for the program, but cannot be considered for one of the grants.

Academic Credit

Students who undertake two courses (6 CUHK credits) can receive credit from CUHK equivalent to 6 ANU units. This credit counts towards a student's degree at ANU. Students receiving a grant must be eligible to receive credit for their studies.


This program is run as an exchange course. Students pay tuition to ANU but do not pay any tuition fee to the partner.

Please note that the AUD $3,000 grant will not cover the entire cost of the program. You will need to consider airfares, tuition fees, accommodation, visa fees etc. For more information, see the CUHK International Summer School website.

Apart from tuition, students need to pay HK $10,960 (approx AUD $1790) to cover the following:

  • On-campus accomodation
  • Administration and activities fee
  • Visa application fee
  • Hostel Deposit (refundable)
  • Caution money (refundable)

See the above link for further details and cost breakdowns.

Application Process

There are two simple steps to applying for a PRIMO program:
  1. Tell us in about 150 words how this opportunity will enrich or enhance your studies at ANU and how this opportunity will benefit you personally.
  2. Seek approval from your academic college to receive ANU credit for this program.
    • You can do so using the "PRIMO College Approval Form" available in the learning content section of the online application for this program. Students must upload the signed "PRIMO College Approval Form" with this application to be considered.
Students are automatically considered for grants upon application, no extra application process is necessary. If a student's college does not approve academic credit for this experience they cannot be considered as an eligible applicant for grants. For students with more than one college, only one college needs to give approval.

Applications open on 12 February 2018 and will close on 2 April 2018 and you should first apply directly to ANU Global Programs.

If you are selected by ANU Global Programs to take part in the course, you will then have to submit an application to the institution before 30 April 2018.

Later Year Students

Later year students should apply directly to CUHK. Later years students are required to meet all eligibility requirements set by the partner, including any GPA requirements. Later year students are welcome to email Global Programs at after applying to the partner in order to be included in pre-departure information and events.
