Travel

You will spend 7 weeks in Xi'an, 4 weeks in Beijing, 1 week in Qinghai, 1 week in Hong Kong, and 1 week in Thailand for a total of 14 weeks (August through November) under the supervision of Asbury faculty and staff. Along with intensive language study and in-depth guided cultural studies and experiences, students will also have the opportunity to observe and participate in hands-on service opportunities at orphanages and with minority groups in rural China.

For more information about the different sites students will see, please visit the Field Trip page.

Because of the amount of traveling required during the program, students will not be permitted to travel before or during the China Study Abroad semester. If visa requirements allow, students can travel on their own and at their own expense at the end of the program.
