Zhuhai, China is a coastal city with green hills to the north located in South Eastern China. Zhuhai is a 70 minute ferry ride from Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Zhuhai's warm climate and clean air make it one of the most comfortable places to live in China. Concordia's semester study abroad program in Zhuhai is an exchange opportunity with United International College (UIC). UIC has 4,000 students providing a small community similar to Concordia. UIC combines western liberal arts and traditional Chinese higher education models with all courses taught in English. See the UIC Brochure for more information.
All courses are instructed in English with faculty from around the world. View current UIC course offerings

"October was such a fun month. I got to meet many new friends during this month. I've met a lot of awesome UIC students that really makes my stay here in China 10x better than what it already was. We usually hang out everyday to grab lunch or dinner." - Loc Luong, Fall 2015
