The Summer Undergraduate Research Programme (SURP) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students from overseas universities to undertake research attachments for eight weeks at CUHK during the summer. Students will conduct research under the supervision of a CUHK faculty member and earn three credits upon successful completion of the programme. Due to travel restrictions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, SURP will be conducted virtually in the summer of 2021 to allow students to take part in the programme without leaving home.
