Student Stories

Students come here from many different countries for a wide range of disciplines, but they all have one thing in common — study in Shanghai, China’s most attractive and alluring modern city.

Students share their stories about their life in Shanghai, the happiness, the experiences, as well as the problems they encounter. So, if diverse cultures are what interest you or you’re crazy about the Chinese language, why not join them? Shanghai’s your best choice.
