The Contemporary China Studies Programme provides you with a unique opportunity to learn about and experience present-day China during an exciting one-semester study abroad programme that carries ECTS credits for your study programme at home. The CCSP is a unique learning experience for advanced Bachelor students who are curious about the cultures and lifestyles of Asia, who want to study at a world-class university and who wish to explore the world of business in China in a truly fascinating yet international and accessible environment. CCSP is located in Shanghai, one of the most exciting cities in the world today, and taught in collaboration with Fudan University, one of the most prestigious research-oriented universities in China and ranked 40th in the world by QS. With CCSP, you have a choice of Chinese language courses, English-taught academic courses on a variety of topics as well as an internship in a local organization or multinational company. In combination with regular group excursions and social activities introducing you to traditional Chinese culture, CCSP is a multi-disciplinary academic programme that provides in-depth theoretical and practical perspectives on China’s emerging status as a global power.
The programme consists of three parts:
- Academic courses
- A language course
- An internship
You may choose any combination of academic and language courses and an internship on offer during the semester, with a maximum study load of the equivalent of 30 ECTS. We will ask you to make a preliminary course selection during your application process. However, your final selection can be made a week into the programme, after you have had a chance to sit in on any of the courses of your interest. In case you need CCSP credits for your studies at home, we strongly recommend that you consult your home university on your course selection before the start of the programme.
