Overall Experience
I learned about what it means to live in a completely different culture. From the food to the language, it was an experience that I'll treasure. Definitely one of the most difficult but also worthwhile experiences I've ever had. - Vanderbilt University View Entire Review
Numerous friends and colleagues. You not only learn about the language and business field, you learn about people, how to handle all different types, and how to get close to others. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Living in shanghai not only taught me that I want to live in Shanghai in the future, but it also taught me how to survive in a city that is not easily accessible to foreigners. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review What The China?
I think my language abilities jumped up so far it made all the craziness worthwhile. I also made a lasting bond with my roommate and will never forget the people I met and friendships I made there. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!
. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I had an amazing time studying abroad in China. The program I was on was a little less than what I expected, due to a pretty bad program director, but the people and the chinese classes were great.

About

Want to use international experience to build an amazing résumé? CET Shanghai students get to understand the rewards and challenges of working abroad. There are hundreds of placements available, and we help you find an organization that's the perfect match for your interests and skills. You'll undertake coursework that provides an academic context for your internship and take Chinese language classes as well. Choose electives that meet a major requirement, like International Marketing, or one that's distinctly Chinese, like Contemporary Chinese Cinema. And if you're not interested in interning abroad, there's an option for that too. To round out your experience, life with a Chinese roommate provides the opportunity to engage with Chinese culture, and a big highlight of the program is a weekend trip to the Yangtze Delta. This program is open to students of all majors and all language levels.Highlights
