Formerly known as the DEVS-Fudan Semester Abroad in Shanghai, this full semester programme, running for 15 weeks from September to December, provides participants with a multifaceted insight into the socio-economic changes currently taking place in China. China is a country that is noteworthy for a rich cultural heritage, an earlier record of alternative development strategies, and a growing movement towards market oriented economic growth that is producing some unique development challenges. Students will have an opportunity to study these developments at Fudan University, Shanghai, whose programmes in social research are considered to be some of the best in China.
In response to growing demand, the program is open to third- and fourth-year undergraduate Queen's students from all departments. Applicants will be given equal consideration, regardless of their academic discipline. Approximately 15 students per year will be accepted into the program.
Full details of the program, including fees, course descriptions, application form, and student handbook, can be found online via the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
Applications are due on Friday 1 March 2013.
