suggestion on course selection

In addition to the courses at hosting department, it’s also available for exchange/ visiting students to choose the class at our Chinese Language Center, Center for Language Studies or other colleges/ departments (must be agreed by each lecturer).

The CCU Chinese Language Center offers several Chinese Training Courses every semester. It’s credit-loaded and free for international  students. We sincerely encourage our exchange students to join at least one Chinese training course during their stay at CCU.

On the other hand, it’s not guaranteed for exchange students to choose the courses offered by our Center for General Education. This kind of courses is limited for enrolment quota.
