A few comments from Summer 2017 attendees:
“It was a very useful day, particularly to network with others who’ll be living in the same city as me” – James
“I was impressed with the enthusiasm and passion shown by all staff. I enjoyed learning a few phrases of Mandarin, and the visa session made things much clearer” – Sarah
“Really good, informative and enjoyable day. It gave me a much better idea of what to expect in China, and some of the cultural challenges I might face – definite food for thought, and the basis of further research. Thank you!” – Emily
“I really enjoyed it and had the chance to speak individually with staff to discuss my questions. An informative day.” – Michael
