Summer 2019 Two-week Study Program in Beijing Announced

The University at Buffalo Confucius Institute (UBCI) is pleased to announce a short-term study program in China for current and former Chinese language students at the University at Buffalo and UBCI. Students at other universities in New York State are also eligible, if space is available. The program will be hosted by Capital Normal University (CNU) in Beijing, July 7-20, 2019, and involve Chinese language and culture classes at CNU and an excursion to the historic city (to be determined) in China. This program will be lead by Professor Yongbo Tian, lecturer in the Chinese Language Program at UB.

Capital Normal University will pay for tuition, meals, accommodations, domestic transportation in China, and most sightseeing activities. Program participants will be responsible for their own airfare, Chinese visa, travel insurance and incidental costs (e.g., snacks and souvenirs).

To be eligible to apply, participants must (1) be non-Chinese citizens who have studied Chinese for at least 3 months; and (2) have graduated from high school at the time of application. Students who have participated in a previous Confucius Institute short-term summer program are not eligible, but previous Confucius Institute scholarship winners may apply. There is no upper age limit for this program.
