Together with the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, we will be providing the opportunity for students to take part in a summer camp in Shanghai. The programme provides students with the chance to discover the economy, culture, language and history of China today. The programme runs for 2 weeks July 2020 (dates tbc).
Students will spend two weeks in Shanghai, including a weekend in Beijing. You will learn about the China of today; attend cultural performances, such as the opera and acrobatics; go on excursions, such as to the Great Wall in Beijing and Yu Yuan Garden in Shanghai; study Chinese language; participate in Chinese cultural activities, such as Tai Chi as well as many more.
Requirements: Students must complete a 20hr Chinese Mandarin course (plus 20hrs self study) followed by a HSK assessment which will be provided for by the QMUL Confucius Institute as part of the programme (dates tbc).
Cost: around £1100 (price subject to change depending on flight and visa costs). This will include: return flights from London to China; travel insurance & visa; internal transportation; accommodation; 3 meals a day; scheduled excursions; cultural performances; guest speakers; Mandarin language & culture classes; pre-departure HSK exam & preparation classes in London.
Once you pay the deposit (£375, which is refundable upon successful completion of the summer camp) you are automatically registered and guaranteed a place. There are no other requirements. There are only 16 places and it’s on a first come basis.
The deadline for applications is 22nd March 2020.
