About the summer course #
Application deadline: 15 March
Nordic Centre Fudan University organises a summer course instructed in English every year for about 70 Nordic students.
Every course has a two-week duration and consists of lectures and business visits. NTNU generally has 3 reserved spots, but we are usually able to send 1-2 extra students if other partners in the Nordic Centre does not fill their quota. NTNU students receive a discount on the course: the fee in 2020 is 1200 RMB (about 1500 NOK).
The course adresses todays China, and gives first hand knowledge about the Chinese society, which is undergoing rapid change. You can choose between:
- Chinese Politics and Society: 25 June to 8 July 2020
- Doing business and Innovation in China: 10 July to 23 July 2020
Course participants will receive 5 ECTS after completing the exam. We recommend that you check with your faculty if these credits can be a part of your degree at NTNU.
The summer course also has a social component.
