Beijing 10-21 August 2015
Explore important issues relevant to contemporary China with world-class academics from LSE and Peking University.
The 2014 Summer school attracted 285 participants of 43 nationalities, and brought together a diverse mix of students and professionals from industry, government and international and non-governmental organisations.
Over two weeks, participants undertake an in-depth examination of new and exciting approaches to the immportant issues facing China ( and the world) today, across a range of subjects including law, finance, economics, management, geography and politics.
New courses for 2015 will cover big data, the media and NGOs.
Participants take one intensive course for the duration of the summer school, typically comprising four hours of lectures each morning and two hours of classes each afternoon – a total of 48 contact hours over two weeks.
It is not a Chinese language course, however participants can enrol in Chinese language courses at the prestigious Language School at Peking University.
The course will be assessed, including a final examination, and successful students are awarded a certificate and transcript.
