For the fourth time, the TU9 universities are running a four-week summer school for students in cooperation with Beijing Institute of Technology. This is offered exclusively to students at TU9 universities who wish to learn Chinese and are planning to spend some time in China on an internship or study programme.
Participants will also learn about culture and intercultural communication: the programme includes visits to places of cultural interest and to companies. Thanks to the participation of Chinese students, TU9 students will have direct contact to Chinese people of the same age and thus the chance to extend their international network.
Further information concerning applications for the TU9-BIT Summer School is available online at http://www.tu9.de/projekte/tu9-bit-summerschool.php
