Nestled in a rich agricultural basin near the foothills of Tibet, Sichuan Province is China’s most populous. Within the mixture of modern cities and rural villages is Chengdu, the provincial capital – home to Western China’s best universities and hospitals, and a major site for foreign and domestic investment, including global industry leaders like Microsoft, Boeing and Intel.

You’ll study at Sichuan University, one of China’s most prestigious universities. The campus is large and exciting, attracting students from all over China and the world. The university district outside the campus is fun and convenient, offering Internet cafes, restaurants, banking and shopping.

The PLU comprehensive fee for Fall semester covers this academic experience (instruction and academic credit, housing and meal stipend, study tours, study abroad insurance, visa fees and $750 flight credit). To find the current comprehensive fee for one semester, divide the total full-year cost listed on the Admissions website by two. Please note that the comprehensive fee varies each year, and the cost of this program will be based on the year in which you study away. Financial aid applies.

Out-pocket expenses include: roundtrip air travel balance after the $750 flight credit, books, personal excursions, and other miscellaneous expenses
