Approximate dates for 2014 are as follows:
Summer: June 26* to August 22, 2014
*Students must arrive in Beijing on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 (or earlier). Information regarding the hotel will be provided at orientation. The last day of the program is Friday, August 22, and thus students may depart from Harbin on Saturday, August 23 or later.
Dates for 2015 will be available during fall term 2014.
Students will meet in Beijing and will stay overnight in a hotel. Students will then participate in two days of excursions in and around Beijing and the group will then take an overnight train to Harbin.
All participants are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to live with a host family. Host families are pre-screened to provide a safe and welcoming environment as well as the opportunity to participate in your family’s daily lives and events. Host families will prepare a single room with a bed and two meals a day.
Students who prefer to live on-site will be given the option to live in the International Student dorm with a Harbin roommate.
Given the short duration and intensive nature of the program and because class attendance is obligatory, students should expect to complete any long-distance personal travel either before or after the program.
All students on this program are enrolled in a mandatory health and accident insurance plan. A complete description of the benefits and basic provisions of the insurance policy can be found at:
OUS Study Abroad Accident & Sickness Insurance Plan
