How “Sessions” work

Each of the courses on offer as part of the Cambridge Summer School is capped at just 20 students and provides 15 hours of instruction. To create the best learning experiences we structure the sessions in the following ways (a visual example is shown below):

Session 1 runs from 9am through to 4.30pm on Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21 with a 1-hour lunch break at 12noon (lunch is provided by the Summer School for all participants of Session 1) providing 15 hours of instruction over 2 days.  The tutors will set their own break periods throughout the day. On Monday, July 22 the Summer School will not operate but keeps this day in reserve in case the teaching on either the 20th or 21st is interrupted by a Category 8/10 typhoon. Typhoons are common in Hong Kong during this period and as a school CDNIS must close the campus in the case that a T8 or T10 typhoon is called. In the case that we are unable to teach on either the 20th or 21st then a makeup day will be offered on July 22. Typhoon activity can be tracked via the HK Observatory Typhoon Track.

Session 2 runs from 9am through to 12:00 noon on Tuesday, July 23 and each day until Saturday, July 27 (inclusive), providing 15 hours of instruction over 5 days. Sunday, July 28 has been set aside in reserve and should teaching be interrupted by a typhoon we will use Sunday, July 28 as a makeup session for any missed teaching. Lunch will be provided for any student enrolled in both Session 2 and Session 3.

Session 3 runs from 1pm through to 4pm on Tuesday, July 23 and each day until Saturday, July 27 (inclusive), providing 15 hours of instruction over 5 days. Sunday, July 28 has been set aside in reserve and should teaching be interrupted by a typhoon we will use Sunday, July 28 as a makeup session for any missed teaching. Lunch will be provided for any student enrolled in both Session 2 and Session 3.

 

Changing Courses

Students may, should they wish, enrol in one class in each session. It is possible to switch classes provided space is available in the desired class, this can be requested by contacting the Activities Office in advance by email (quoting your current course) or on the day of teaching in person.
