Beijing 12-23 August 2013
LSE and Peking University have collaboratively run the LSE-PKU Summer School in Beijing every summer since 2004. The tenth LSE-PKU Summer School will run from 12-23 August 2013. The application deadline is 17 June.
The two-week English-language international programme offers university-level courses all with a focus on China and Asia in subjects including economics, management, international relations, media, law. See courses.
It is not a Chinese language course, however participants can enrol in Chinese language courses at the prestigious Language School at Peking University.
The programme is taught by outstanding faculty from Peking University and LSE. It attracts students and professionals from around the world: 410 students from more than 50 nationalities in 2012.
A quarter of participants are graduate professionals working in a wide range of related fields, including business, finance, public policy, international affairs, NGOs, the media and law. The students who attended in 2012 came from 200 universities and other higher education institutions.
Participants take one intensive course for the duration of the summer school, typically comprising four hours of lectures each morning and two hours of classes each afternoon – a total of 48 contact hours over two weeks.
The course will be assessed, including a final examination, and successful students are awarded a certificate and transcript.
The deadline for applications to be received is 17 June 2013. Applications will only be considered after that date if places are available. See How to apply.
