Read on for more info about this awesome and prestigious opportunity.
Ten lucky UC students will spend three weeks at Peking University in Beijing this summer as part of the Global Awareness Summer Programme.
Why is this a big deal? – Not only is it a chance to get a first-hand insight into Chinese society and culture. It also provides a very rare opportunity to study at one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Peking University has one of the lowest admission rates in the world – it’s harder to get into than even Harvard!
Some other facts about Peking University:
- It boasts the largest university library in Asia with a collection of more than seven million items, including a large collection of ancient Chinese materials
- It’s widely considered one of the top two universities in China, along with UC’s exchange partner, Tsinghua University
- It’s the eighth best institution in the world for Modern Languages and has 26 subjects in the top-50 in the 2016 QS World University Subject Rankings.
The three weeks at Peking will involve lectures on Chinese history and culture, language classes, art, calligraphy and dance workshops, and the opportunity to exchange ideas with Peking students studying New Zealand history and culture. There are also a number of fieldtrips to sights of significance in and around Beijing.
In Beijing, students will also undertake research as part of an internship linked to the Canterbury Mayoral Forum’s China Tourism Strategy – a fantastic experience to put in your CV and share at your future job interviews.
