Take the Journey of a Lifetime with the WLSA Semester Abroad Programme

Studying in China is a once in a lifetime opportunity; you will learn abroad as well as immerse into the culture and history. China has become one of the leading destinations for international students, and because of this rise in popularity, WLSA offers associate schools students the opportunity to study in China for a semester (October 2017 - January 2018).

Get out of your Comfort Zone
The Semester Abroad programme aims to provide intercultural understanding, mutual respect and social responsibility through full cultural immersion. By delving into unfamiliar territory, you will gain the skills needed to thrive in an increasingly multicultural and interconnected world.

Throughout the Semester Abroad programme, students have the opportunity to travel independently across China, stay with host families, perform community service and, if available, pursue an internship. Participants are actively involved in school life, be it as a student, mentor, tutor, or club leader. Moreover, WLSA will provide the opportunity to learn Chinese. By the end of the programme, student participants will be prepared to embark on their higher education journey with international experience.
