Top notch service from start to finish. They were very helpful when I first started in Beijing and remained so for the whole year. Great well organised efficient company.

Global Learning Semesters

I enjoyed the semester, however I could tell that the program was still very new and had a bit of kinks to work out. While the program leaders were great it was actually the fellow American students that made things a bit miserable - perhaps a little more selectivity of applications could improve the quality of experience for everyone once those with no intention of learning are removed. Otherwise I wish you the best and hope that things keep growing!

China Study Abroad

I decided to go to China to study mandarin but was aprehensive to do so. Not being able to speak the language tasks such as finding accomodation, transfer to accomodation and enrolment to a program was daunting. China Study Abroad made everything a lot easier as they were able to sort everything out prior to arrival. Once in China the staff were friendly and always on hand if you needed help. Weekend activities not only gave you a chance to meet other people but also explore Beijing. This program also gave me the opportunity to volunteer in Hunan and teach english in a school, something I would not have otherwise been able to do. To finish my stay, China Study Abroad also has a summer study and travel program and I was able to visit several cities where everything was already organised (travel, hotel, guide, etc). I would definately recommend this program to friends and family.

China Study Abroad

I used China Study Abroad and found their services excellent. I was anxious at first to go to China and about using a service like this, but with the airport pick up I was assured that it was a legitimate company. They also helped me move out of my home stay family into a private apartment when the family became "less than welcoming" to say the least.
The excursions are great when they have them, and this is the best way to meet other students as well from all around the world (and China too). They also helped me volunteer in Hunan for a week teaching English to the children there.
Overall I would say that if you are considering studying in China, this is a very easy way to do it because you will be living close to all the major universities, you don't have to worry about dealing with registrations and you don't have to worry about dealing with Chinese landlords in renting a place.
