Christopher - 2017

The Fudan International Summer Sessions is definitely a worthwhile experience.

The courses were fulfilling and all the other activities organised for the program were lots of fun. My favourite part would have been the weekend trip a few mates and I organised to Beijing, the Great Wall is a spectacular place to visit. In Shanghai, you will never ever be bored. There is so much to see and do, and it is one of the most interesting and full-on cities in the world.
