Words To Students 
 
The Study Abroad Institute, in SWUFE, offers students the chance to prepare for international life and international education in the classroom, while remaining in the comfort of Chinese culture outside of it.  This allows students to ease into the process of studying abroad and prepares them for their future hurdles in a progressive and constructive way.
The range of universities on offer for students allows them to decide which educational system and location is best suited to them.  Choosing the right university to study at can be intimidating and complex, yet the programme offers detailed guidance and help for students, as well as ensuring students attend the best university possible.
The teachers at the Study Abroad Institute come from a range of countries, America to Spain, Britain to Pakistan, which allows students to adapt to a range of international teaching styles and approaches to learning.  All of the teachers are approachable and friendly, as well as offering high international standards of teaching. 
The courses have been developed systematically to allow better uptake of knowledge by the students, but bridging the gap between Chinese and International practices.  Our courses are taught in both a formal lecture manner, but also a more interactive and creative way, which forces students to think critically and be involved in class, a key concept in western institutions. 
Finally, the Study Abroad Institute has a safe and friendly environment to learn in.  The campus is leafy and spacious, and of course safe.  The teaching facilities are modern and high-tech.  Our classes are limited in number, to ensure maximum teacher student interaction, as well as replicating international protocols. 
We welcome you all to attend the Study Abroad Institute in SWUFE.
