Program Description:

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 one of three grants 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 25 June 2017 to 2 August 2017, where you can choose to study in a variety of courses including business and management, China studies, Chinese language, environment, science and technology, and humanities and social sciences. This course shall offer the opportunity to immerse 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 Shenzen or a study break to Beijing is also offered for students who would like to visit China. 


Successful applicants for this program will be enrolled into an ANU exchange course relevant to the approving College and the approved number of units. Students will be liable to pay the associated course fees to ANU through their normal payment arrangement. This fee does not include airfares, all other meals, personal expenses or travel, or other personal purchase choices or necessities.

If you are not selected for this program with tuition waiver arrangements or would prefer to pay full fees direct to CUHK, you are able to applying directly to CUHK for any of their summer options available via their website. If you wish to gain credit towards your ANU degree you will need to seek permission from you College in advance. Please contact your College(s) for instruction of who to seek credit.

  • be in your first year of study at the start of the program;
  • seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant. It is indeed a condition of the Australian Government mobility grants associated with this global study opportunity that students receive academic credit for the course within their ANU degree. Credit transfer arrangements must be validated and observed by your ANU college(s) and you must receive prior confirmation from your ANU college(s) that you will receive academic credit upon successful completion of this external course
Students who will have finished first-year, but yet to commence second-year, are eligible for one of the grants. Later-year students are welcome to apply for the program, but cannot be considered for one of the grants.
