Visiting the University of Hong Kong under the Laidlaw Programme

International students from partner institutions within the Laidlaw network are welcome to apply for project supervisor at the University of Hong Kong in the summer of 2019.

Introduction to HKU Laidlaw Programme

Project List for Summer 2019

HKU faculty members have identified a list of projects appropriate for visiting students within the Laidlaw Programme to gain hands-on research experience on the campus of HKU. These projects will allow you to gain insights into a specific area with Asian perspectives, give you new inspirations through working with a dedicated team of researchers of a completely different background and culture, and enhance your CV and employability in future.

If you wish to propose your own research project, please contact Ms. Audrey Chung at audrey.chung@hku.hk.

Visiting students are recommended to visit HKU during June to August for six weeks. The exact periods will be mutually agreed by both the student and supervisor.
