LSE and Peking University have collaboratively run the LSE-PKU Summer School in Beijing every summer since 2004. The twelfth LSE-PKU Summer School will run from 10-21 August 2015.

The two-week English-language international programme offers university-level courses all with a focus on China and Asia in subjects including economics, management, international relations, media, law. See courses|.

It is not a Chinese language course, however participants can enrol in Chinese language courses at the prestigious Language School at Peking University.

The programme

The programme is taught by outstanding faculty from Peking University and LSE. It attracts students and professionals from around the world: 300 participants of 44 different nationalities in 2013. 

A quarter of participants are graduate professionals working in a wide range of related fields, including business, finance, public policy, international affairs, NGOs, the media and law. The students who attended in 2013 came from 114 universities and other higher education institutions in 30 countries.

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. 

The course will be assessed, including a final examination, and successful students are awarded a certificate and transcript.
