Experience the Future Header

Experience the Future   is a tailored study abroad program that gives students the freedom to choose from a suite of courses in English, pre-approved for Queen's plans, at Fudan University, Shanghai.

Fudan is one of the most prestigious universities in Asia, located in the heart of Shanghai, a megalopolis of 23 million people, one of the most  dynamic and exciting  cities on the planet.

Courses taken in the program are pre-approved for transfer into plans in Film and Media Studies, Geography, Global Development Studies, History, Political Studies, Religious Studies, Sociology, and World Language Studies.

Participating in Experience the Future is an investment in yourself:

  • You will stand out from peers when it comes to job applications or graduate school. According to Jane E. Emrich, Assistant Dean of the Faculty of Law,  "In fact, participation in an international exchange can be a transformative experience, allowing the student to gain more maturity, self-reliance, intercultural competencies, another language fluency and can enhance critical and comparative perspective in a discipline. Therefore successful completion of an international exchange is viewed positively by admission officers."
  • You will be ahead of the curve of globalization and ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century.
  • You will benefit from a  tailored program that has many unique features  compared to regular exchange programs.

Experience the Future  is open to all undergraduate students in all plans at Queen’s, including citizens of the People's Republic of China, Taiwan (ROC) passport holders, and residents of Hong Kong and Macau who will be entering third year or above in September.  Applications are due February 27 2015.  To learn more, please get in touch with the program co-ordinator or check us out on Facebook.
