API offers students an amazing opportunity to study abroad in China and experience traditional cultural elements while still being mindful of the context and realities of contemporary Chinese society. Our study abroad programs offer a variety of courses taught in English with Chinese and international students, in addition to courses in Chinese (Mandarin) language and history.

China presents a fascinating juxtaposition – it is home to one of the world’s most ancient civilizations caught in the midst of some of the most rapid expansion of economy and infrastructure in history. The pace of development and change has grown exponentially over the course of three decades, and now cities like Shanghai are world-class centers of business, culture, finance, and trade. There has never been a better time to travel to or study abroad in China – take the leap with API!
