International Summer Exchange Program
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
2012 – 2015
I launched The International Summer Exchange Program (ISP) for HKUST 2012. Prior to ISP, the university only had exchange programs in the Spring and Fall semesters. The summer exchange program 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, it attracted over 60 students in the first year. The program was very 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. Summer exchange now happens regularly in HKUST.
