Career Strategy Fellowships Study Abroad Summer Session

Yunnan University: Kunming, China

Program Highlights

A very small program in a charming, third-tier city. Chinese roommates provide rich social engagement and a welcoming locality make this the consummate off-the-beaten-path program. CET's Kunming location is its greatest asset, since Yunnan is the province with the richest ethnic diversity in China, countless nearby sites of exquisite natural beauty, and summer temperatures that will please even the most heat-averse Light Fellows.

Great program for students who already have a solid foundation of first and second year Chinese and have spent time in a larger Chinese city. Best for a self-motivated learner. Good choice for a student who is interested in China's ethnic/cultural studies, eco-tourism, or environmental studies.
