Cologne Summer Schools in China

In the context of the economic boom in China and its associated global importance, it becomes more and more important to learn Chinese and to know about the Chinese culture. To address this challenge, the China-NRW University Alliance organizes the Summer School in Shanghai in cooperation with Tongji University, which provides students with first-hand insight into the Chinese culture and their traditions, as well as in today's business life. The summer school's purpose is to serve as a kind of introduction to Chinese culture. The program offers the unique opportunity to learn Chinese in China and thereby get to know a different culture.
