Peking University (PKU) is considered China's most prestigious institutions of higher education.

Our seminar program was established in 1987 to help North Americans gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture, history, social and political situations of China. Our professors and their foreign language-speaking graduate students will not only teach participants Chinese language, art, caligraphy, but also hold seminars on history, economy, environment and social development.

The seminar will also be an excellent choice for marketing, management and finance majors or executives who are seeking for business opportunities in one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

Through specially arranged meetings with Chinese historians and artists, and everyday contact with faculty and students, participants are introduced to many different aspects of Chinese life and culture, both traditional and modern.

There will be sessions of Chinese language study. Lectures are given through experienced English language interpreters. Accommodation is provided on the historic and picturesque campus of the university, where participants can immerse themselves in the academic and social life around them. Frequent field trips are led by faculty and students from the university.There will also be free time for relaxation, shopping, sightseeing and visits to private homes. Extension trips to Xian, Shanghai, Guilin, Inner Mongolia or a Yangtze River Cruise can be requested and pre-arranged.

As the political, educational, and cultural center of China, Beijing provides participants with an unrivaled cultural and academic experience.

This program can be tailor-made based on the requirements of any organization, department of universities or business institutes.
