The Social Sciences Summer Programme was first launched in 2002. It is designed for local and international secondary students as well as homecoming overseas students who are planning their future university studies, and mainland high school students. Through a 5-day camp with guidance from mentors who are HKU staff and undergraduates, the programme aims to achieve several objectives. It introduces an integrative and interactive social science multidisciplinary learning experience, and to create an opportunity for students to learn about disciplines within the Faculty through an innovative and dynamic programme of activities. Participants will stay in student hall on campus.

The programme theme “Live Your life to the Full” is designed for participants to explore their way to live a fruitful and meaningful life from social, political and psychological perspectives. With the support of the Departments of Geography, Politics and Public Administration, Psychology, Social Work and Social Administration, Sociology and Journalism and Media Studies Centre to organize forums, lectures, field visits and team projects, participants will be stimulated and encouraged to think and learn more about life planning. They will also be inspired to develop their own views on related social issues.
