Study Abroad at Nanjing University

Tracing its history back to 1902, Nanjing University is one of the oldest and most prestigious higher learning institutes in China, catering to both local Chinese students as well as international students.

In 1921, the university formally set up the department of Western Literature, the first of its kind in the country. Over the years, that led to the establishment of the School of Foreign Studies, which remains busy and annually hosts the largest number of students from the United States in China. Nanjing University offers one of the best Chinese language course in south-eastern China, providing opportunities for international students to study for a semester abroad here,  or enroll anytime during the summer or winter times for shorter courses.

Located in Eastern China's Jiangsu Province in Nanjing (185 miles west of Shanghai), Nanjing University has three main campuses: Gulou in the city center, Pukou on the northern bank of the Yangtze River, and Xianlin international campus in the east of the city. Gulou and Xianlin are connected through the subway.

You can choose your China study abroad program to be placed in Nanjing and have your own experience in this beautiful southern city!

Oliver - United Kingdom University Mandarin Program in Shanghai

20 people coming from different countries, learning Mandarin together in a small group class from Monday to Friday: that’s the spirit! The two months in Jiaotong University were just crazy! I was not expecting that at all. I had so much fun learning and living the life in Shanghai that I did not want to leave. People were great and teachers also. I have learned how to write 200 Chinese characters in 2 months. Read More

Joshua - Australia - Internship & Mandarin Program in Beijing

A number of things contributed to making my internship such a fantastic experience. First of all, as I chose the home stay option, I was living with a Chinese family in a typical Beijing apartment. The family was very kind and provided assistance to me where they could. Secondly, the internship position itself and the company I worked for were excellent. For the first time since starting my studies I was able to get real-world, hands-on experience applying my knowledge, and I got to learn a lot of new stuff along the way. Thirdly, the other employees at my work were great people who really enriched my experience.Read More

GAC-Testimonial-Anna

Anna - Germany - Internship Program in Beijing

I would definitely recommend ‘Go abroad China’ without a once of hesitation, they give you just the correct balance between freedom and their fun organized events. You can always get in touch with any of them if you need help which is very reassuring. The coordinators are fantastic people that I had the chance to meet around good Chinese dinners and weekend activities. By the way, just a little advice for vegetarians: in China the menus are in Chinese so tell the ‘fuwuyuan’ (the waitress) ‘wo chi su’, which means that you are a vegetarian.Learning Chinese in Beijing with local people is very interesting. The beijingers have some special accent regarding some specail Chinese words. in additional, the staff will be able to help you choose your food. Read More
