This year, we are continuing our existing collaboration with the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Simon Fraser University, Canada to offer students an exchange opportunity in the coming September. Different from the standard IO exchange program, this is a two-semester exchange, and at the end you will get a “Studies in Statistics” letter from the dean at SFU to recognize your schoolwork.
Students currently in Year 2 or 3 may apply.
The department will provide the same support as the International Office, i.e., tuition and partial support for airfare and living expenses. On-campus housing is available, but the student is expected to pay the rent.
Applications and deadline:
A complete application consisting of
Course Requirements for "Studies in Statistics":
Participants should complete MATH3805 Regression Analysis, or take STAT 350 in their first semester at SFU. (N.B. All STAT xxx courses refer to courses offered at SFU.)
Participants may take up to a total of 30 credits during his or her stay at SFU. Successfully completed STAT and MATH courses (i.e., with a grade of C or better) may have their units transferred back to HKBU as equivalent courses in Mathematics. Any remaining courses taken at SFU may be eligible for credit transfer, as per the standard transfer procedure.
Department has secured a few seats in this summer school. We invite motivated undergraduate students with an interest in mathematical modelling and scientific computing to apply. A suitable applicant must have successfully completed
The PIMS-SFU Undergraduate Summer School on Scientific Computing on Curved Surfaces is an intensive four week program for Canadian and international undergraduate students. The core of the program is a course which provides an introduction to continuum models on curved surfaces, and the numerical solution of the corresponding partial differential equations. Working groups will be formed to solve problems by building mathematical models and then applying and modifying numerical software.Financial supports
* The financial support will be provided by the Faculty to the students in a reimbursement basis by cheque after they returned to Hong Kong, provided that the students fulfill the following requirements. Should students fail to meet the requirements, the Faculty reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship:
