To ensure a flying start to your China experience, the CCSP programme starts with an extensive orientation programme. Orientation is meant to make you familiar with Fudan university, its staff and its facilities; with Shanghai and of course with your fellow CCSP students. Orientation for the Autumn 2019 semester will take place between September 2 - 6, 2019. We expect you to arrive in Shanghai on August 31 or September 1.
First encounters with classmates on the Bund:
What does Orientation look like? Fudan University student buddies will welcome you at the airport, and deliver you to your student dorm at Tohee International Students Village. Our staff will be there to help you check in and get settled. Next day, we will hold a welcome meeting for all students, where we will discuss your programme and share important information, and we will invite you for your first real Chinese meal. In the next days, our language buddies will take you on campus and city tours. We will also assist you to register at the university, apply for your residence permit, arrange your local medical insurance, get you your local SIM card, get online and help you shopping for your first daily necessities. In other words, no need to be nervous about arriving in an unfamiliar place, we’ll take care of you from the moment that you land in Shanghai.
“When you join the Fudan foreign student “family” you get a buddy student who's familiar with nearly everything you have a question about. With that, you not only get a helping hand, but also you get a local friend.”
