International Summer Exchange Program
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
2012 – 2015
The HKUST International Summer Exchange Program (ISP) was the second program I launched for HKUST. Before 2012, the university only had exchange programs in the Spring and Fall Semesters. The summer exchange allowed a study abroad experience for those who wouldn’t be able to go on exchange in regular semesters due to various reasons. Under a tight 4 months’ time from conceptualizing to implementation of the first intake, the program was well-received by students and HKUST’s exchange partners. The number of program participants grew dramatically annually from 66 in 2012 to over 400 in 2015.
