Why study abroad in China?
Study in English and learn Chinese. With both languages you are globally mobile and highly employable.
China represents a world of ideas and values built on one of the world’s oldest cultures. You’ll gain a new perspective on your own life and of those around you.
Fun and friendship
Studying abroad is fun! You’ll have new experiences and make friendships in China and with people from across the globe that will last a lifetime.
Develop an understanding of the world’s second largest economy and largest consumer market.
Blending one of Asia’s leading research and innovation hubs, a quirky old town with canals and willow-filled lanes, and a glitzy new town, Suzhou is a curious mix of the ancient and the hypermodern. Connected by bullet train to the centre of Shanghai and Beijing you will have a chance to experience the pulsing heart of east Asia.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore China’s vast and varied landscapes, ancient cultures and dynamic economic development.Shankar Sannthakumar Visiting student, United Kingdom
