Universities that offer Chinese and English instruction?


mswift

Recommended Posts

I am a university student that is interested in studying abroad in China for a semester. I would like to take beginner-level Mandarin language classes, but also take some classes in my major that are instructed in English. Can you recommend universities that offer a broad range of subjects instructed in English?

Thanks,

Michael

Hey,

A quick google search turned this up:

http://www.china.org.cn/english/LivinginChina/184768.htm

It's a list of English-taught Programs at Chinese Universities

There's also some more that aren't listed, I'm sure of it.

Btw, if your looking to take courses and then transfer the credits to count them towards your degree back home, you have to make sure that your university back home will recognize them (the Chinese university courses and credits.) If it's for this purpose, your best bet would be to look up specific courses offered at the most recognized Chinese univ., my guess would be Peking University, Tsinghua, and the like. Or check to see if your school already has any international agreements/exchanges with any of these or other Chinese universities.

Good luck.

Yes, the programs are taught in English, so I'm pretty sure that means that the professors speak in English to teach the material, and the exams are in English. Also note that since their taught in English, and most likely meant for foreigners, the tuition will be significantly higher than for the programs' Chinese-taught equivalent.

Whichever program your interested in, I suggest you go directly to the school's website, (google the school's name and you should find it.) Then contact the head teacher directly, there should be contact information for whoever is in charge of the English-taught program.

Hello,

On the campus of Donghua uni in Shanghai there is a school/institute called "Raffles", if I recall correctly. Lots of their classes were taught in English, but this was back in 05 when I was enrolled at Donghua, not sure if it's still up and running. I think the Raffles school was fashion design oriented... and in Shanghai, go figure.:lol:

Also at Donghua there were some non-Chinese students doing post grad stuff in the sciences, maybe you might want to look into those. I distinctly remember meeting two guys who spoke almost no Chinese yet were there from Africa doing big brain science stuff, so it may have only been research??

ah, I understand. It appears your right, only two school's listed offer undergad in english.

We'll, I know there are more universities that offer undergrad taught in english but aren't listed. Firstly, what undegrad major are you interested in? If it's western medicine, there's a university in china which teaches it in english, specifically for int'l students. If it's TCM, there's a few universities which offer the entire program in english.

If your major is in the humanities/arts... not sure how many options you have, but I think your best bet is Beijing University, I think you should give them a shout right away, they should be able to tell you. There contact info is on this page:

If your interested in the engineering/computer related majors, check out Tsinghua University's website.

Alternatively, as wix mentioned, Taiwan also has a few universities with english taught programs, go to the address below and click on "Programs taught in English" link on the left side:

On a side note, I would recommend you read the links in post # 6 by gato, in the thread linked below. (Generally speaking) A degree from a Western country is worth alot more (in the eyes of employers) than one form China.

One thing I would caution about is that some schools might have programs that use English but are not available to all international students. The school I am at, Xiamen University, only has English-language programs at the graduate level I believe.

One school I have heard of that offers undergraduate-level courses taught in English is Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). My school (University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill) has a program there and has accepted credit for several classes like Molecular Genetics and Intro to Econ. The Chinese language center offers 6 levels of classes in Mandarin and Cantonese. At least for students at my school, each semester you take 6 hours of Chinese language classes and choose your other classes from the regular curriculum. According to the CUHK website, each department offers at least a few classes in English each semester, as well as some in Mandarin, with the majority being taught in Cantonese. I haven't actually participated in this program, but it seems good for someone who wants to study Chinese and take classes in certain subject areas. I have a friend who is there right now, and I could ask him for more info if you're interested.
