How it Works

Change “one day” into “today.

Shanghai Summer School provides you with an experience on which you can build the rest of your life. A new language, new friends and a new perspective.


Leaving your comfort zone will be the best decision you have ever made.

Shanghai Summer School is set in a way that it represents an optimal balance between language learning, exploring Chinese culture, meeting and learning from successful entrepreneurs and discovering stories of everyday people. In the mornings, Shanghai Summer School participants will take classes in the Chinese Language, the most widely spoken First Language in the world. Afternoons will be devoted to business and cultural workshops. After which, participants will venture onto the streets of Shanghai to put to practice their freshly learned knowledge, and to discover the true essence of the city first hand.


Shanghai Summer School is for the open-minded, and for those determined to make it count. It’s for the adventurous, for those in need of a fresh start and for those who already know what they are after.

Like Shanghai, our Global Family consists of a vastly diverse group of people. They have one thing in common though, they share the same incredible passion for life and want to live it to its fullest.

Donghua University is the perfect Shanghai Summer School partner. Its academic excellence combined with the international nature of its student campus make it ideal for a truly global experience. Donghua was one of the first in China to open its doors to foreign students. Today, more than 20,000 students live and study on its central Yanan Road campus in the city centre. It excels in many fields .but is a true leader in space-related textile technology. Donghua University had a part to play in the design of a spacesuit for the Chinese Space Program!
