Discover SWUFE Summer Camp Scholarship

SWUFE 2018

The Discover SWUFE International Summer Camp Scholarship 2019 is now open for applications! The closing date for applications is Friday, 15 March.

Waikato Management School is offering two lucky students an all-expenses-paid trip to China from 14 to 27 July 2019 to take part in this year's 'Discover SWUFE International Summer Camp'.

You'll enjoy an extraordinary two-week programme of business lectures, sightseeing and cultural activities, hosted by the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE), one of China's leading business schools.

SWUFE is located in Chengdu, the rapidly growing capital city of Sichuan province, known internationally for its rich cultural history, unique Sichuan foods, and being home to the giant panda, as well as famous Buddhist and Taoist temples.

This is an amazing opportunity for two undergraduate management students (BBus, BBA, BCS, BMS or BMS(Hons)) to experience an authentic taste of modern Chinese life, as well as Chinese culture, business, economics and history.

You'll also get to make friends with a diverse, talented group of around 90 international students from 30 countries all over the world.
