Would this go into the "Universities in China" forum?

 

Thanks for the write-up! I'm glad to hear that BLCU is a worthwhile place to study. I have had one eye on the place for a while and have considered a year-long course of study there.

 

The key is to focus on you and your studies and not let others bother you.

 

Absolutely. I agree.

 

Warm regards,

Chris Two Times

Good review!

I should try to do the same for the intensive Chinese courses I took there last year. People will benefit the comparison between Intensive and Regular courses! I take it you are not the "Beer Garden at 4 PM" kind of student... ;-)

Great write up. I'm coming in to the program in a month with absolutely 0 Chinese experience, so I'm excited to see where it takes me. I don't drink, and I'm a little (though not much) over my partying years, so hopefully I'll be able to focus heavily on my studies. I would do the intensive courses, but I need to spend some amount of time every day working (I work online) otherwise I won't be able to pay tuition. Thanks for the positive review, I'm looking forward to it..!

@reric123 you are aware of the Chinese firewall, some websites being completely blocked (e.g. Google), and some others being very slow? Do you have a VPN?

I'm using VyprVPN, it works well. Beware that apparently these days using a vpn in China became a real crime for the Chinese government.

I always used a professional VPN preinstalled by the IT department of my company to access our corporate network (and through it, internet websites outside China such as Google etc) , so I don't have names of retail VPNs...

I see. Thanks for the tips. I'll look into getting a vpn (and not getting arrested!)..

Is that better to have a China bank account with money before I arrive the school, isn't it? The school won't give you time to pay later as I may not have enough cash at the spot or a Chinese bank account at that time?
