“Experiencing Western Culture” Intensive Learning Programme in the UK
TWC offers tremendous opportunities for students to gain intercultural experience including organising a variety of overseas study tours. In May 2015, students of the course “Experiencing Western Culture” set off for their two-week intensive learning programme in the picturesque town Christchurch in Dorset, the United Kingdom. The programme included lectures and seminars given by local teachers on various aspects of the historical and cultural development of the country (such as its food culture, daily lives’ practices and its political, religious, education and healthcare systems). In addition, with a range of field trips, excursions and social activities organised by our partner institution, our students could interact and exchange not only with the locals but also with other international students.
