There will be an information session on Tuesday, February 7, 4:00-5:30 pm in Denny 401 for students interested in learning about the 2012-2013 exchange program with Sichuan University in China. This is a home tuition program providing students a very affordable way to study in China in a structured and supportive environment. (Because it’s home tuition, financial aid usually also applies.) Application deadline for this program is March 2, 2012 for the 2012/2013 academic year.
The UW-Sichuan University Undergraduate Exchange Program is a unique chance for UW students to not only live and study in China but to engage in a hands-on, self-directed research project overseas. The two or three quarter program offers intensive Chinese language training, additional classes offered in English and an amazing chance for students to research a topic of their own choosing. Sichuan University’s location in western China means that students have the opportunity to travel and do research in places such as a national park in the eastern Himalayas or remote minority villages in southern Sichuan. The program is open to all majors and is a great opportunity to make huge gains in Chinese language skills and to really engage with China.
