Research shows the importance of summer learning:

“On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of learning in math over the summer — and teachers have to give up weeks of class time, or more, to make up for that loss.” (link) “High-quality summer enrichment programs can help schools address summer learning loss. The Afterschool Alliance (2010) describes well-designed summer learning programs as those that increase achievement, enhance motivation for and engagement in learning, and develop and nurture new skills and talents.” (link)

Cambridge Summer School 2019 in Hong Kong

Posted by heo

Date: 20 – 27 July 2019

Venue: Canadian International School of Hong Kong

For students aged 15-18

37 Courses – 14 Academics, HK$7,000 per course

Details: http://sites.cdnis.edu.hk/school/usguidance/

Will this course prepare me for Cambridge?

Though not a stated aim of this programme (to “prepare students for Cambridge”), we are pleased to advise that many of our former students have been successful in subsequent applications to the University of Cambridge and other highly selective, research-intensive universities. Exposure to the discourse and ideas of high-level academics can have a profound impact on the development of students – the physical location of this exposure is less important. Students and interested parents will be invited to a subsequent admissions talk, given by an academic from the University of Cambridge and will be held at CDNIS.

What is the cost per course?

The courses are HK$7,000 per session and each will have 15 hours of contact time and are capped at 20 students (HK$467 per hour with a real Cambridge Academic!).

When do the courses run?

Sessions run during the period: Saturday 20th July 2019 – Saturday 27th July 2017 in three sessions. Please note that due to previous popular demand a few courses may repeat over the 3 sessions; please do not register for the same course twice as this would be a repeat of the material and will also prevent other students from accessing these very popular courses.

Are there any Entry Requirements?

Students enrolling on sessions will need to be at least 15 years of age at the start of the Summer School (date of birth before or on 20th July 2004 – please note this is a recommended requirement). These courses are designed to be highly challenging and stretching for all students and thus this age restriction imposed by Cambridge. Opportunities for students of a younger age will be available here. Any student/parent that enrols under the age requirement does so understanding that the recommendation from the Summer School is that these courses are only suitable for students above this age and that you accept that the material may be challenging in the extreme for you/him/her. Please note that all instruction is in English (unless otherwise stated) and so a strong ability in academic English is required.

Who are the Tutors?

All of the teaching staff for the Cambridge Summer School are current and active academic staff employed by the University of Cambridge. They have a huge range of experience, have published many academic papers and have keen academic interests. You can see the biographies of each of the tutors by clicking on the individual course links and seeing their Bios at the very top of the page. We are pleased that we have professors from the following University of Cambridge colleges: Trinity HallKing’s CollegeClare CollegeHomerton CollegeMurray EdwardsGonville & CaiusCorpus Christi and Downing College.

What are the main Academic Areas?

The courses on offer cover a wide range of subject areas and several cross academic boundaries and would have appeal to students from a broad range of interests. The main academic areas covered this year include; Chemistry, Psychology, Medicine, Law, Economics, Mathematics, English Literature, Philosophy, Physics, and Art History. There are also some general skills/interest courses which would be suitable for students from any discipline looking to improve their academic skills.
