Yunnan University (Chinese Language)

This program is eligible for the Phillips Ambassadors Scholarship
This program is designed for advanced learners of Chinese language who want to further improve their language skills in an immersion Chinese environment.  This program is recommended for students who have prior experience studying in other parts of China who wish to widen their knowledge of the country and culture.

In addition to language coursework, optional cultural classes will be open to our students, including Chinese Kongfu, Chinese Calligraphy, Chinese Tea Art, and Chinese Music. The program will also match our students informally with local students outside of class to practice their language. Trips to 3-4 cultural sites in the Kunming  area (Bamboo Temple, Western Hills, Golden Temple, Stone Forest) will be arranged.


Yunnan University, founded in 1922,  is the major comprehensive university in the province and one of China’s key universities, included in China’s “Project 211” university development plan. For this program, our students will be hosted by the College of International Students and the International Affairs Office at Yunnan University.

Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in Southwestern China, is a very livable city with a cool climate. As Kunming does not have the large foreign community found in the eastern cities of Beijing and Shanghai, its environment will encourage students to immerse themselves in local culture. The geographic and cultural diversity of the province make it one of the most popular destinations in all of China.

Courses & Credits

Students will spend the entire length of this 8 week program taking Chinese Language. Chinese language courses for this program will only be offered at the third and fourth year level.  Only students who have 2 or 3 years of prior Chinese Language Study at the university level or the equivalent are eligible to apply.  Language Courses will meet each weekday morning.  Students will receive 6 hours of TREQ transfer credit upon successful completion of the program.


At Yunnan University, students will stay on campus in the university guesthouse in double rooms with either a local or international student.  The International Affairs Office will provide students with an orientation to the program and to living in Kunming.
