Summer Programmes Worldwide 2020

Summer Programmes

This summer I have experienced the best thing that has ever happened in my life. Everything was just so amazing: the people, the food, the culture, the history, the nature, the architecture and much more. One month in Japan was simply not enough

From the moment I arrived in Shanghai I was in awe, it is such a beautiful place and this trip has ignited my love for China and also my passion for travelling... It was an unforgettable adventure that has created so many memories for me

China Summer Programme


I would surely recommend this programme to others as it is a fantastic opportunity to live and experience a new culture. Furthermore, the time you spend in such beautiful cities and the tourist attractions that you can visit definitely makes this an opportunity worth taking
