There are many opportunities to truly experience China, something which is increasingly valued by employers. Short and longer-term studying in China will give you an insight into Chinese culture, cultural differences between China and the UK and provide you with an opportunity to learn Chinese.


Easter Study Trip to China 

Information Sheet: Word VersionPDF Version

Anyone studying Chinese with the Confucius Institute has the opportunity to go on a Study Trip to China. This is an 11-day trip, visiting Beijing & Guangzhou, which is offered by the CI every Easter. This visit will include the chance to explore 2 of China's biggest cities, including some of its most famous historical attractions, including the Forbidden City and The Great Wall of China. Additionally, attendees will stay and enjoy the latter half of the trip with our partner university in Guangzhou, the South China University of Technology, who will offer a fun selection of sessions for you to learn practical Chinese, as well as discover aspects of traditional Chinese culture, including learning to make Chinese knots, trying out Tai Chi, and even giving you the chance to spend an evening with a Chinese family. To finish off the trip in style, you will be given a spectacular view of Guangzhou lit up at night, as you head out on a night cruise along the Guangzhou River Delta.

Further details: We are preparing for the Study Trip in 2019. The plan for travel to and from China is: Travel to Beijing on 30th March 2019, arriving in Beijing on the 31st March, and departing from China on the 10th April 2019.
