Peking University Summer School International 2011
About the Program
The third Peking University Summer School International will run from July 4 to 29, 2011. The program integrates the best of Peking University's teaching resources and aims to provide a stage for communication and learning between global students. The goal is to develop students' global outlook and enhance their international competitiveness. More than 110 students from Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, UC (University of California), ANU (The Australian National University), and NUS (National University of Singapore) joined the program in the summer of 2010.
The program offers 10 “content courses” and one Chinese language course. The subjects of the content courses are related to philosophy, economics, public policy, sociology, culture, literature, and music. All the content courses will be taught in English by prominent professors and renowned experts at Peking University. The Chinese language course will be taught by experienced teachers organized by the School of Chinese as a Second Language at PKU and offered to the students with primary Chinese level. All courses will be held at the Peking University campus. Students will receive an official transcript from Peking University upon completion of the program.
During study at PKU, besides courses in class, students will also get chances to take cultural visits and social practices organized by Peking University. They are able to fully experience the "Democracy and Science" tradition of Peking University and make linguistic, and academic exchanges with PKU students face to face as well, experiencing the rich academic atmosphere and colorful campus life in a more direct way.
The scheduled visits arranged by Peking University include both historical relics, such as Tian’anmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall, and featured shows as well as exhibitions, such as Peking Opera. All of these activities would enrich their spare time and deepen their understanding of Chinese culture.
