When you join the Contemporary China Studies Programme, you have a choice of English-taught business and academic courses on a variety of topics, Chinese language courses as well as internships in local organizations or multinational companies in Shanghai. 


ACADEMIC COURSES

CCPS offers an average of 15 academic and business courses per semester on topics ranging from contemporary Chinese culture and society, economics, business and marketing to Chinese politics, diplomacy, religion and psychology. All courses are taught in English for one period of 2 or 3 hours per week by renowned Fudan university professors, using an effective mix of teaching and examination methodologies, as well as Chinese and Western academic literature. You will be asked to make a preliminary course selection during the application process, however, your final selection can be made a week into the programme, after you have had a chance to sit in on any of the courses of your interest.  


Examinations may consist of written tests, group or individual presentations, papers or assignments, depending on the course. Information about examination and grading for every course can be found in the course descriptions elsewhere on this website. Upon completion of the course, you will receive an official Fudan University certificate of attendence and transcripts.

In case you need your CCSP study credits recognized for your studies at your home university, we strongly recommend that you consult your professor or the international office of your university on your course selection before the start of the programme.


LANGUAGE COURSE

Language courses are offered by licensed Fudan University language teachers in small class settings at beginners and intermediate level. Placement takes place based on your Chinese language proficiency, which is tested at the start of the programme.

Will you be a fluent Chinese speaker at the end of the programme? Probably not. It will take a bit longer to speak the language fluently. But you will be able to find your way around in China, order food, take a taxi and engage in daily conversation. More importantly, learning the basics of the Chinese language will help you tremendously in gaining a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and society.    


INTERNSHIPS

Doing an internship in an international corporation or a local organisation in Shanghai as part of your CCSP experience provides you with an invaluable opportunity to gain working experience in a global environment, to have practical exposure to the world of business and management in China, and to develop unique business skills which will certainly serve you well at the start of your professional career. With CCSP, you have a choice of part-time and full-time internship options, ranging from one day per week as part of your academic programme to a full semester, full-time internship.
