Summer school

2016 SJTU Global Summer School



Located in one of the most prosperous and dynamic cities in China, Shanghai Jiao Tong University will offer you a rare chance to learn about current affairs and issues in China, tracing back their origins to ancient times while maintaining a view to today’s state, from multiple perspectives at SJTU Global Summer School.


The summer school takes place over a period of two weeks and consists mainly of four programs with particular themes which are individually organized by four schools of SJTU:


China Studies                                                                   School of Humanities

Chinese Ancient Architecture                                        School of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Civil Engineering

Chinese Politics as well as City Governance                 School of International & Public Affairs

Food Security in China                                                    School of Agriculture and Biology


Experience unique trips that make the knowledge come alive. You will have the opportunity to see, feel and understand Chinese culture while studying these new subjects, for instance, you will learn about ancient wisdom and civilizations on the criss-crossing paths of the Hexi Corridor, explore classical Chinese temples and dwellings, gain an understanding of the theory and practice of China’s politics and global governance or learn new approaches to solve the problem of food safety in China. 


We look forward to having you join us for SJTU Global Summer School in 2016!
