Nankai University Summer School

About the Program

Nankai University offers students unique 4-week course options during the summer that are focused on experiential learning.

One featured program is the Anthropological Field Methods, which offers a unique opportunity for students to be introduced to basic techniques in cultural anthropology and skills of collecting first-hand field data using anthropological fieldwork methods. Students will study topics such as the history of anthropological research methods as well as the ethical issues of doing fieldwork. 

Another program offered by Nankai University is the Belt and Road Initiative/Doing Business in China, where students will concentrate on interdisciplinary topics such as China’s economic development, history, society, law and public policy in a business context.

Students will also have the chance to combine what they are learning in the classroom with learning more about Chinese culture and language through various cultural activities offered as part of the program.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Transfer credits and evaluated courses at this university

Check out the courses that other students have transferred back to UBC in the last 5 years.

Not all courses listed are offered through the summer program at this partner institution. This list is a general guideline only–research the partner's website for actual course offerings.

No courses found.

Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program. Before attending the program, you will be asked to disclose how many credits you are taking in the summer program so that you can be assessed the appropriate tuition. If you enroll in more credits than you claim then you will be assessed for the additional tuition.

If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution.

In both cases, the partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner program information for details of program costs.
