LSE-Peking University Summer School
The LSE-PKU Summer School started in 2004, with 61 students from 15 countries. In 2012 the programme had over 410 students from 50 countries, with the single largest number of students from China. The programme is modelled on the very successful summer school programme at LSE, with specific China and Asia related courses on the Beijing programme.
Executive Public Policy Training Programme (EPPTP)
The EPPTP was launched in 2006, as a partnership between LSE, Peking University, Columbia University, and Sciences Po, Paris. The programme is specifically developed for senior Chinese government officials, to develop their understanding and skill-set in public policy and policy making.
Each year around 50 officials from around China participate in the programme in Beijing, taught by academics from the four institutions.
Since 2011 Peking University has participated in LSE's PhD mobility network, allowing for an exchange of PhD students between the 2 institutions. LSE students can apply for a bursary to cover some of their costs during a 2-3 months period of PhD study at PKU.
Some LSE academic departments have departmental exchange PhD exchange agreements in place with their counterparts at PKU:
- LSE Department of Government and the School of Government at PKU. For further details at LSE contact Prof. Paul Kelly.
- LSE IDEAS (Diplomacy and Strategy @ LSE) and the School of International Studies at Peking University. For further details at LSE contact Dr. Svetozar Rajak
