Exploring Student Well-being in Hong Kong & Australia
As part of our global outreach initiative, Common Core offers an opportunity for HKU undergraduate students to participate in a 9-week virtual international exchange programme with students from the University of Queensland and Griffith University in Australia. This inquiry-based exchange focuses on building research skills through exploring the topic of well-being across the two contexts. Students are expected to participate in multimodal and experiential activities and conduct collaborative research to make a creative and original contribution to the study of well-being.
Academic staff from the participating institutions will advise and mentor the students in their research projects.
This virtual exchange requires students to invest at least 50 hours of work*. You must be available every Thursday 11 am – 1 pm HKT across 8 Sep – 3 Nov 2022. However, other than the time commitment, there is no participation cost. A stipend of up to HK$2,000 will be paid to each student for successfully completing the programme.
The opportunity is open to HKU undergraduate students. Limited positions are available.
Please contact the project coordinator Dr Jack Tsao (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have further enquiries.
