Learning without thinking leads to confusion; thinking without learning ends in mental exhaustion.
China Studies is a special regional study programme at University College Utrecht.
It aims at helping the students to understand China, a rapidly developing country with a continuously growing global influence. By following the program, you will not only learn practical language and cross-cultural communication skills, but also gain an insight into the path and features of China’s development.
At University College Utrecht, students can learn the Chinese language to a sufficiently professional level, enrich their theoretical knowledge in the fields of culture, literature, history, philosophy and sociology (among others) through English-taught content courses, and practice real social communication skills by going on an exchange (at one of our five top destinations), taking a field course or doing an internship in China.
Below you can find more information about exchange destinations that can be part of the China Studies programme.
