Program Description:
China Banner

Living with a Chinese roommate—in a pairing based on interests and preferences—is one benefit shared by all School in China students, whether in Hangzhou, Kunming, or Beijing. Challenging course work and the Language Pledge round out a highly immersive program for the serious student of Mandarin Chinese.

Located in Southwest China and close to several countries in Southeast Asia, Kunming is known as the "City of Eternal Spring".

Kunming's parks--combined with the temperate climate of Southeast Asia--make it a very livable city with a strong "outdoor" culture.  Kunming is very multicultural, clearly demonstrating the influences of the 26 different ethnic groups living in Yunnan Province.

There is a dual application process for this program:
