Cambridge Summer School HK July 2018 – Registration is now open
Posted by heo
The Canadian International School Hong Kong (CDNIS) is delighted to, for the 7th year, welcome academic staff from the University of Cambridge to teach at our ever-popular Summer School on the school campus in Aberdeen, Hong Kong. The Summer School, open to the public, will convene for one week during the summer break and will bring several current University of Cambridge academic staff to Hong Kong to teach a wide range of courses at a near 1st Year University of Cambridge level. The CDNIS Campus, where all courses will run, is accessible via the MTR South Line – using Wong Chuk Hang MTR station – and is a 10-minute walk. Please note there is no parking available at the campus.
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 in the autumn.
What is the cost per course?
The courses are HK$7,000 per course 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?
Courses run during the period: Saturday 21st July 2018 – Saturday 28th July 2018 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.
