In an increasingly globalized and competitive world, the rise of China cannot be overstated. Chengdu, also named as “Country of Heaven” and the “Land of Abundance”, is well known as the habitat of giant pandas and the city of the cotton-rose hibiscus in Western China. There are 40 institutions of higher learning based in Chengdu, including the well-known Traditional Chinese Medicine University.
Chengdu has a long tradition of encouraging international exchange in the field of education. Currently, the city is actively promoting educational standards for teachers and students, boosting infrastructure and facilities and laying out long-term goals for “internationalizing” Chengdu’s education system.
In order to give our Anglo students a head start in understanding the psyche and culture of China and also learn from their fellow friends, the school is embarking on an Overseas Student Immersion Programme with a highly reputable public school, Chengdu Luodai Zhongxue, in Sichuan Province, China.
