China as Our Classroom
The city of Hangzhou was a major consideration in the location of the CIS Hangzhou programme. It is a cultural classroom unto itself as both one of China’s oldest cultural hubs, with myriad historic and literary sites, and also one of China's most progressive metropolises, with state-of-the-art amenities and a booming technology sector.
Students have many opportunities to go out into the city, with appropriate supervision, for community service and leisure activities.
As part of the CISHZ orientation, students travelled off campus to find their teachers at iconic locations across Hangzhou.
