Study Abroad in Shanghai

Shanghai has a history as the port of entry for foreign traders in China.  It's a natural place to study abroad, particularly for business people.  Today's Shanghai is one of China's major trading hubs, and its bustle is unmistakable.  Studying abroad in Shanghai gives you the chance to be at the center of the action.  Your Chinese courses will take up half your day, but the rest of the time is yours.  Buy live fish in one of the city's wet markets.  Get a custom-made suit in the fabric of your choice.  Visit the busy port and watch thousands of containers being loaded and unloaded.  There's no end to the discoveries you can make while studying abroad in Shanghai.

Life in Shanghai as a Student

Shanghai is one of the largest cities in China, and has thousands of students.  There are many universities in the city and many businesses cater to the needs of students.  When you study abroad in Shanghai, you can live with a host family or in a student residence.  Living with a host family lets you discover Chinese family life.  Life in a Shanghai student residence is more social.  You'll meet students from around the world in your Chinese classes in either case.  Because few Chinese people in shops, taxis and restaurants speak English, you'll have ample opportunities to practice your Chinese.   Studying abroad in Shanghai is often a life-changing experience.
