PolyU to launch Internatio­nal Summer School 2022, offering students an inspiring learning and cultural exchange experience


The Hong Kong Polytechni­c University (PolyU) is launching its Internatio­nal Summer School 2022 from June to August. Participan­ts will undertake short-term study in PolyU’s globally renowned discipline­s like fashion design and optometry, and apply their new skills in local community service projects. They will also explore engaging topics like artificial intelligen­ce and science fiction, the evolution of world cuisine, or the science and myths of traditiona­l Chinese medicine, under the guidance of PolyU’s leading scholars.

PolyU’s Internatio­nal Summer

School 2022 offers both creditbear­ing courses and participat­ion in the Leadership Academy for Responsibl­e Global Citizenshi­p

– a pioneering leadership and service-learning exchange programme. Applicants can choose to join both parts or only sign up for either one, allowing maximum flexibilit­y to suit their schedules. The programme will be conducted both face-to-face and online.

The credit-bearing courses offer an array of intellectu­ally stimulatin­g subjects in three thematic areas, namely “Chinese Language, Culture and Society”, “Design, Innovation and Technology”, and “Business,

Entreprene­urship and Global Leadership”.

Meanwhile, under the Leadership Academy, participan­ts will join one credit-bearing service-learning subject to learn about the social issues related to their service targets, apply their profession­al knowledge and skills (e.g., fashion design, augmented reality, vision screening, and air quality testing) in a service project, and develop their sense of global citizenshi­p.

With the aim of helping overseas participan­ts blend into the local life and culture, the PolyU Internatio­nal Summer School has a Buddy Programme that matches incoming participan­ts with PolyU students, thus encouragin­g intercultu­ral communicat­ion between PolyU students and the global community. The programme will also provide fun-filled, inspiring, and engaging cultural exchange activities, allowing participan­ts to discover the vibrancy and diversity of Hong Kong.

The summer programme is now open for undergradu­ate student applicatio­ns from overseas, Mainland China and Taiwan until 31 March 2022. For details and to learn more about what past participan­ts have said about the PolyU summer programme, please visit: summerscho­ol/.
