The aim of this meeting was to inform the students and their parents of the summer camp schedule and give a background about the two Chinese cities: Shenyang and Beijing, where the students will be visiting as part of the program.
The first part of the program will be at the headquarters of the Shenyang Normal University (SNU), in Shenyang.
This University is under the administration of the People’s Government of Liaoning Province. Shenyang Normal University was established in 1951.
It is a multidisciplinary university, covering nine subject areas: Philosophy, Economics, Law, Pedagogy, Literature, Science, Engineering, Management and Art Studies. The campus of SNU covers an area of 1879 mu (125.3 hectares), including 763,600 square meters of building space.
The University’s library houses a collection of more than 1.8 million books. Currently, there are 22,000 students pursuing either undergraduate or associate degrees, 3,300 postgraduate students, and 950 international students at SNU. Now SNU has 26 schools and colleges, 14 organizations and affiliated agencies.
At present, SUN offers 73 undergraduate programs, 18 first-level disciplines conferring Master degrees, 128 second-level disciplines conferring Master degrees and 11 professional Master’s degree programs.
SNU is one of the universities that are approved by the Ministry of Education to recommend excellent undergraduates to study for Master degrees with an exemption from entrance examinations. SNU is one of the universities in China authorized to recruit international students with the Chinese Government Scholarships and Confucius Institute Scholarships.
SNU is also one of the first pilot units authorized by the Ministry of Education to carry out the comprehensive reform in the education of postgraduates for professional Master degrees. At present, SNU is working on the internalization of education.
The program entails a schedule of Chinese language training −daily for ten days− in addition to participating in several activities related to Chinese culture and sports, as well as other tours around the city.
The student is then subjected to take the HSK test. Finally, the students will receive certificates during the Closing Ceremony of the program at the university.
The Second Part of the Program will be in Beijing, where the students will have a chance to visit one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’: The Great Wall of China. They will also visit the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Olympic Green（Bird's Nest, Water Cube), Summer Palace, and Temple of Heaven.
