Applications are now open for VU students to take part in a 14-day China Tour in early July 2017, organised by VU's Victoria Business Confucius Institute (VBCI).

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to experience China and its culture. The trip includes:

  • meeting students at the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE), our partner university.

Successful applicants will be offered six hours of training in basic Mandarin and Chinese culture, provided by the VBCI.

The proposed itinerary will take in Beijing, and Ningxia or Xi’an.

The final itinerary will be confirmed closer to the tour date.
