Exchange programs with China and Taiwan

Our Institute's cooperation with the departments of history and sociology at Nanjing University provides MA students with the opportunity to attend regular courses at a Chinese university. Students interested in this exchange program send their applications directly through the Institute of Chinese Studies. Please contact the MA coordinator for more information.

The International Office at the University also offers a number of exchange programs with other Chinese and Taiwanese partner universities, including Beijing University, Tongji University in Shanghai, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, University of Hong Kong, and National Taiwan University.

Students enrolled in the above-mentioned programs do not have to pay tuition fees in China. Sometimes, they also receive a small stipend covering part of their living expenses.
