The “Discover SWUFE” 2014 Program

The Discover SWUFE program is designed to give you a memorable and powerful two-week (June 29–July 12) encounter with SWUFE and China. You will attend lectures, delivered in English, by leading professors from SWUFE and also get the chance to meet with senior professionals from local business. The program is about much more than academic/professional learning; our focus is on providing an unforgettable experience that will also take you on a journey into other aspects of life in modern China. 

If you enjoy exotic cuisine, the unique foods in Chengdu and Sichuan can be savored in the famous Jinli Street. If you enjoy theater, the breathtaking traditional Chinese mask-changing performances are unbelievable. If you like history and culture, we will show you the local World Natural and Cultural Heritage Sites, such as the Sichuan Panda Sanctuaries, the famous Wuhou Shrine, Mount Qingcheng, the Giant Buddha at Leshan, and much more!

You will also get chance to learn Chinese calligraphy, martial arts, cooking, and traditional music! These experiences combined will give you a unique and first-hand understanding of Chinese culture, language, and business.

Program Cost

This exciting experience is our invitation for you to have a wonderful time in our university and country. We will pay for all other costs of this two-week program (course fees, accommodation, transportation around Chengdu, and meals). The only costs that your students need to pay are for visa application, insurance, and the flight ticket to Chengdu! But, probably you will want to bring some of your own spending money for unique gifts to take back to your friends and family.
