Do you have plans for Summer 2022?

Kent is pleased to offer various virtual summer schools being delivered by our partner universities in Hong Kong and Japan.  Many are offering full scholarships or discounts to participate.  Now is a great time to learn something new, try a course that you may not be able to study here at Kent or help to enhance your studies ready for next term.  Courses range from Intensive Japanese Language learning, Hong Kong Cinema to Business Communications and International Relations & Peace Studies.

Taberek Al-Yasiri, 3rd year, Law with a Language student shares her experience of participating in Hong Kong Baptist University’s online summer programme last year:

The 2021 HKBU summer program was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever had. HKBU put together a great program that allowed us to immerse ourselves in Hong Kong’s history, culture, and community. Local students showed us around Hong Kong and explained the heritage and significance of different parts of the city. In one of the tours, we learned about the history of Kowloon Walled City. We were then guided around Kowloon, starting from Kowloon City Market and the surrounding areas, known as Little Thailand. We went around the bakeries and stalls to explore a few local dishes, desserts, and snacks. We also learned about the Thai New Year’s Songkran Festival. The locals enjoyed telling us about the activities and events that take place during the festival. We also had virtual tours of the Traditional Floating Village, Wan Chai, and Hong Kong Old Town Central. We concluded our journey with a farewell party at the end of the program. 


The teaching was also of a very high standard, and our teacher encouraged us to take a critical approach – much like at Kent Law School. Our teacher made this experience special by giving us a comprehensive insight into Hong Kong’s economy. He also helped us gain access to popular culture by translating songs and articles that were not available in English. The classes were very interactive as nearly all seminars included group work. I would highly recommend HKBU to anyone who is considering a summer school next year.  I would’ve never been able to travel and live in Hong Kong at this stage of my life, so I’m glad that I could experience Hong Kong remotely.
