NUSRI also works closely with local universities to offer courses on the Chinese language, culture, history, geography as well as China’s economic development. Courses are interactive and relevant to ongoing issues. Lectures and interaction with local students provide participants with a platform to exchange cultural ideas and share about their student life.

Cultural Immersion

China emerged as one of the world’s earliest civilisations. Field trips to major cities of China are integrated into the programme to help foreign students better appreciate Chinese history and culture. Besides, various masters are invited to conduct lessons in the different forms of art, such as Chinese calligraphy, tea appreciation, bonsai art, Chinese knot making, paper cutting, tai chi, martial arts, fan painting, etc.

Industrial Learning

As the world’s second largest economy, China has recorded stunning economic growth in recent decades. Visits to companies provide participants with an insight into the day to day operations and working culture in China. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact directly with the founders or top management of companies.
