Latest news


The Santander Universities network, of which the ULPGC is a member, has organised the Summer School on Intercultural China Studies in Shanghai. This event will take place at Shanghai International Studies University and will run from 1st to 31st August 2018.

The programme offers classes in all areas relevant to relations with China, such as Chinese culture and tradition, economics, diplomacy and linguistics. It has been designed as an initiative to attract students who are considering participating in an exchange programme with China, or who hold a wider view and are hoping to commence some form of professional activity in this region. Classes will be taught by experts in their respective fields, and they will be from both Europe and China.

In addition to formal classes and linguistic education, students will be able to experience real immersion in cultural and social activities with a view to increasing their understanding of China. These activities include movie nights, tai chi classes, a tea ceremony, and excursions to Hangzhou, Tongli Water Town and Xitang, Xi An, Beijing, and the famous Great Wall.

Students will stay in the student residence of Shanghai International Studies University (SISU) and will be assisted by local and European students and organisers who will help participants enjoy an enriching, memorable and fun experience.

Students will be selected by a committee from the Santander Universities network from those who have registered for the programme, in consideration of a prioritised list that must be prepared by each partner university based on certain general criteria.

Furthermore, the ULPGC offers a travel grant to one of the students who may be selected.
