Program Overview

Program Description:
The summer of 1997 was not only a pivotal year in Hong Kong’s history (when it was handed back to China by Britain), it was also the first offering of the University of Toronto’s Summer Program in Hong Kong. In 16 summers over 3100 students from all across Canada have participated in this incredibly popular and successful program.

The University of Toronto offers 3 to 6 week summer courses in Argentina, Australia, Central Europe (Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland), China (Hong Kong and Shanghai), Ecuador, England, France, Germany, Italy, Peru, Southeastern Europe (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia), Spain and the United Arab Emirates. Courses are for degree credit and students from other North American universities are welcome to participate. Prices vary by site and range from approximately $4200 to $9000 (this include tuition, accommodation, meals, textbooks, and field trips).

This Hong Kong summer program is not only of interest to students majoring in East Asian Studies, Asia-Pacific Studies, History, Cinema, Business or Visual Studies, but to anyone who wants to complete an elective course in an academically and culturally stimulating environment. Also, non-Commerce students are eligible to enrol in RSM courses taught in the Hong Kong Summer Program.
Setting Description:
The program is hosted by the University of Hong Kong (HKU), Hong Kong’s oldest and largest institution for higher learning, established in 1911. Hong Kong is truly unique. There is an almost intact traditional Chinese culture coexisting with Western values. Chinese medicine shops, sampans, junks and abacuses survive alongside skyscrapers, marbled shopping malls, cellular phones and Rolls Royce's.
Cost:
