Past Review Essential
My time abroad was a period of both intense academic and personal growth, and was extremely worthwhile. I would not have been able to achieve this level of growth at my University in the USA. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned how big and different the whole world is. It is amazing how different every part of the world is and I find that incredible! Definitely worthwhile! Simply amazing! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Immersed!
I want to live in China again. Yes it was worthwhile, especially for the time to travel and Chinese roommates and internship experience - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained/strengthened a lot of social skills while I was abroad. Being in a country with a completely different official language (you can't understand the people, the roadsigns, the menus) forced me to adapt and learn so much. I didn't realize it until the program was over and I was back in the United States. It was definitely ... - 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. We had Chinese roommates who were so much fun and all of the kids from the other schools were great. The city itself is so exciting ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!
Arriving in Shanghai will all of the skyscrapers and overwhelming amount of people, I felt pretty insignificant. Balancing Chinese class, a mini-elective history course, and my internship taught me to be more confident in myself. This experience allowed me to realize that I can survive in China in the future. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Learned that I can learn a language quickly. That study abroad is a lifetime experience. It's definitely worthwhile; studying abroad allowed me to realize what I wanted to do with my life. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
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
I definitely gained self-confidence in my Chinese. I gained a lot of great friends. Finally was in a co-ed environment. Had LOTS AND LOTS of fun. Shanghai is a great city. I gained confidence in general too and understanding of another culture and gained a greater international perspective. I met so many international people. It... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

About

Want to use international experience to build an amazing résumé? CET Shanghai students get to understand the rewards and challenges of working abroad. 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 Ninghai. This program is open to students of all majors and all language levels!
