Year 10-CIS Hangzhou

At CIS we offer a unique opportunity for our Year 10 students to spend a year in Hangzhou, immersed in Chinese culture and language, while continuing their education in English.  Participating in our CIS Hangzhou programme is required for all of our Year 10 students.

CIS Hangzhou is located on the campus of our partner school, Greentown Yuhua School (GYS), a leading private school in Zhejiang Province. Sharing a campus with Chinese peers provides CIS Hangzhou students with a range of opportunities for exchange and friendship.

CIS Hangzhou has been crafted to be an intensive year-long journey of discovery. The programme is built on the four pillars of Community, Character, Challenge and China.
