Who is Shanghai Summer School for?

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

Like Shanghai, our Global Family consists of a vastly diverse mix of people coming from all over the world. They have one thing in common though, they share the same insatiable curiosity about life and want to live it to its fullest.
