About Yantai University
Yantai University was one of the first Chinese institutions to accept international students. As China becomes more and more important on the world stage, and speaking Mandarin Chinese is an increasingly valuable skill, students now come to Yantai from all over Asia, Europe, and North America. With a curriculum based on the American model, Yantai University offers up-to-date coursework in one of the world’s fastest-changing countries. World Endeavors students become part of an immensely diverse student body, while being immersed in the culture of a modern and authentically Chinese city. The university campus offers a new gym complex, sports and other extracurricular activities, and a beautiful setting with plenty of green space.
Who Chooses this Program?
Studying at Yantai is a great choice for students at all language levels who want to immerse themselves in the Chinese language and culture while becoming part of an international student community. The Yantai area has a lower cost of living than many major Chinese cities, making this program a good fit for budget-minded students. In any study-abroad program, the most successful students are open-minded and excited about experiencing a new culture and lifestyle.
I gained insight into a different way of life, work, and government. I can reflect on the contrast between two worlds. Because of my positive study abroad experience, I am researching Master’s programs in China.
