Program Description:
The Summer Undergraduate Research Programme (SURP) at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) provides an opportunity for international undergraduate students to undertake research projects for eight weeks. Students will conduct research under the supervision of a CUHK faculty member and earn three credits upon successful completion of the program.

  1. Applicants must be registered full-time undergraduate students in senior standing.
  2. Applicants must be in good academic standing.
CUHK will receive up to 80 undergraduate students. While the programme welcomes applications from all students from overseas and non-Chinese universities, admission rests with the CUHK host supervisors.

Over 80 research topics are listed on the website.

Successful applicants will be registered in a 3-credit IASP 4091 course entitled "Independent Research on International Studies II" to conduct a research project in English under the supervision of a CUHK faculty member.
