China field study summer course

INTP 378/POLS 418

Applications are now being received from students wishing to enrol in the China Field Study Trip, organised by the Victoria Political Science and International Relations Programme in cooperation with a partner university in Beijing, China.

Although the course begins in mid-November, with a three-week study trip to Beijing, applications need to be submitted during the first trimester so that arrangements for air travel, accommodations and the study programme can be made by the course organisers.

There are limits on the number of students who can take part in this special programme and students need to apply early enough so that their application can be considered. The Course Information Sheetpdf90KB should be consulted before completing the course application formdoc26KB.

Students interested in the programme will be interviewed as part of the selection process, with most interviews expected to take place in the first week of June. It is expected that applicants for this special programme will be advised about about the outcome of the selection process during June.

Any questions about the programme can be directed to Jason Young, jason.young@vuw.ac.nz.
