China Studies Program at Peking University Apply Online

  • " CSI differs from many typical study-abroad programs in that it tries to challenge its students intellectually as well as encourage them to have fun."

    Hannah Chen (Grinnell College)

  • " I loved the atmosphere of Peking University. I would recommend this program to anyone wishing to improve their Mandarin and get a taste of living in Beijing. "

    Eliza Laamoon (Colby College)

  • " There is no other program available that takes you all the way west to Lhasa, Tibet. "

    Peter Rosenbloom (University of Michigan)

  • " Due to the small class size of the program, most of the times I felt that I was in one-to-one tutorial. "

    Seo Hyun Choi (University of Chicago)

  • " As an immersion student, I had an opportunity to live with a Chinese family during the semester. Having meals and spending time with my family gave me a true representation of living in Beijing. "
