Ever wonder what it would be like to study abroad in China and learn the Chinese language at the undergraduate or graduate level?
The Chinese Government is offering scholarships for eligible British Columbia students to study abroad!
The purpose of the Scholarship Program is to strengthen mutual understanding and friendship between the Chinese people and people around the world. It supports the development of cooperation and exchange in the fields of education, science, culture, economy and trade between China and other countries.

The number 0.4% doesn’t sound like a lot, does it? The average life span of a Canadian is 82 years old. If you challenge yourself and choose to go study abroad for one term (approximately four months) it will only take up 0.4% of your life! In the grand scheme of things, four months isn’t a lot of time to spend on a journey that will change your life forever.
By Chantal Moore, JET Programme alumni
There are many things you learn studying abroad, but the most important thing might be the development of a good heart. Being abroad matures you emotionally and teaches you how different people live in countries you have only read about online. You learn that your sense of poverty back home barely compares to another’s poverty in a less fortunate country. While it’s true you will gain valuable skills that boost employability, such as cross-cultural communications, the development of empathy may enrich your life most of all.
British Columbia’s Ministry of Education announced that applications are now open for the Student Exchange Mobility Awards, which provides funding for groups of K-12 British Columbia students traveling with their teachers.
So, be sure to check with your school and see if they are running a Study Abroad program this year!
