High School Students Experiencing China Field Study
The UK Confucius Institute offers a 14-day field study in China designed to help high school students expand their Chinese language and cultural experiences. Participants will receive a scholarship to cover all expenses within China (meals, accommodation, inter-city transportation by air or train, admission to cultural and historical sites, tuition for studying at Shanghai University, local transportation, airport pick up).
