Inbound students Study Abroad and Exchange at the University of Melbourne
There's so much happening at Melbourne Global Mobility, it's hard to keep up, from new opportunities and scholarships to events.
Exciting non-credit opportunity in China
Packed into two exciting weeks, students will have the opportunity to learn about the fascinating and diverse world of China through the 2018 Tsinghua International Summer School – Experiencing China. Guided by a team of experts in their field, students will be taught how global issues play out in the Chinese context through interactive classes and panels. With 13 special China-focused tracks to choose from, they can hone in on their specific academic interest including Economy, City development and Environment, Innovation, Education, and Humanities etc. Students are encouraged to choose one track for their project and will be led by an academic tutor for an in-depth exploration of the topic.
Today's dynamic China cannot just be understood from the classroom. That's why this summer program emphasizes really experiencing China, through excursions and on-site trips. Alongside this, Students are given the opportunity to gain insight into Chinese culture and the Tsinghua spirit through various cultural experience activities. With the summer school's 300 strong international cohort you have the wonderful opportunity to make new friends from all corners of the globe. You will gain skills in cross-cultural communication, a key skill required for tomorrow's future leaders, and also sharpen your interdisciplinary mindset. - Tsinghua International Summer School
After successfully completing the summer school, students will receive an official transcript. University of Melbourne students will NOT receive credit for their participation in this experience. This opportunity is offered to students to complement their academic studies and build their skills. Engaging in learning outside the classroom allow students to support the development of important employability and leadership skills while providing them with transferable skills for their future.
