    About the Program

    Participants will receive a scholarship from and be hosted by Zhongnan University of Economics and Law (ZUEL), partner university of SBU’s Confucius Institute. ZUEL is located in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and one of the most ancient cities in China. Wuhan is a huge political, economic, and cultural hub – the biggest financial, industrial, and commercial centers in Central China. With its intriguing contrast of old and new, Wuhan is attractive to international visitors.

    Cultural excursions include the ‘Bund’ in Shanghai, the Three Gorges, the Terracotta Warriors, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China.

    Student Feedback

    “Embrace every single moment of your experience because it will change your life in so many positive ways!”-  Participant, Summer 2015

    "Try to interact with the local students as much as possible. They are really friendly and willing to show you around." -  Participant, Summer 2015

    "The classes were a lot smaller and more intimate. There was more hands-on activities such as excursions to learn about Chinese medicine and acupuncture. There was a greater sense of community within the classes. And of course, the topics and viewpoints were different." - Participant, Summer 2015
