Faculty Teach in China Program
Every summer, UK Confucius Institute and the UK Office of China Initiatives sends qualified UK faculty to teach in Chinese universities for 2 to 4 weeks. International round airfare, accommodation in China during teaching are covered. In addition, faculty will receive a teaching stipend for the courses they teach.
There are four campuses for Faculty Teaching in China Program:
"In many ways, teaching in China is like teaching in the US. Chinese students wrestle with many of the same issues that American students do: grades, job prospects, romantic relationships, family troubles. One big difference is the reverence that most Chinese students have for teachers. A teacher’s word is gold in China.
Our hosts at Jilin University were very hospitable. They arranged outings for us, like a visit to a nearby lake for the boat races on the day of the Dragon Boat Festival. Each of us was assigned a living assistant whose job it was to help us navigate everyday life, such as ordering food at the cafeteria or finding out where to get a massage or do laundry. Everyone wanted our visit to be enjoyable, and it was."
