Program Reviews:
Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
Overall the program was a wonderful experience. In addition to a great cultural experience I also received a quality education while abroad
Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
The academic quality was good overall and well-adapted for English speakers. However, the structure of classes and the material was quite different than what I'm used to at UGA, and it took some getting used to
Robert Edward Karnick, Spring 2016 Participant
I couldn't have picked a better location than Beijing from which to go on sightseeing trips and excursions. Right within the city there are at least five major cultural artifacts, and air and rail travel to surrounding cities is quite cheap
