Priority consideration

The Summer Institute offers over 30 programmes across a wide variety of HKU disciplines for Academy members to explore their interests over the summer. Members are eligible for priority consideration by simply providing their Academy membership number during the registration process. Priority consideration for Academy members also applies to events and activities arranged by the University’s admissions office.

The Academy also extends exclusive opportunities for members to receive scholarships or subsidies towards their fees for summer programmes.
