Beijing 8 - 19 August 2016

Explore important issues relevant to contemporary China with world-class academics from LSE and Peking University. Over two weeks, participants will 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 included big data, the media and NGOs, and our new brochure and materials for 2016 will be updated here shortly.

Why attend the LSE-PKU Summer School?

Here are the top 5 reasons our previous participants have rated the LSE-PKU Summer School so highly:

  1. The LSE-PKU Summer School provides a unique opportunity to learn about China, from within China, but with a truly international perspective.
  2. The programme is taught in English by outstanding faculty from LSE and Peking University -  two of the world’s leading institutions for teaching and research.
  3. The diversity of attendees - in 2015, the LSE-PKU Summer School was attended by 275 participants from more than 50 countries across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas, around one third of whom were graduate professionals from different industries, governments and NGOs. This enriches class discussions, social events and networking opportunities.
  4. Doing something different makes a huge difference to academic and professional career prospects; our participants like to stand out from the crowd as future leaders in their fields.
  5. The location - Beijing is one of the largest and most dynamic cities in the world, providing a fascinating base from which to learn more about China's economy, politics and social policies.
