Language Programs

Language Programs enable students to learn English at an overseas university for one month usually during summer break.

Each program involves English classes at the destination university, providing an opportunity to learn a foreign language in a country where it is spoken. It is the perfect environment to reinforce academic instruction with practical application.

Furthermore, the training program involves more than classroom teaching. There are small excursions or opportunities to experience daily life there, making it a more integrative experience of language and culture.

Short-Term Student Exchange Program

The Short-Term Exchange Program provides participants with an opportunity to learn about different education styles through observing classes at the host university, and experience a different culture, history and society. Also it helps them understand the importance of human communication skills.

In 2014 Short-Term Student Exchange Programs were implemented between TUS and the Institute of Technology Bandung (Indonesia), Xi`an Jiaotong University (China) and Kunming University of Science and Technology(China), respectively. During each exchange visit, which lasts up to 10 days, around 10 students travel together and take part in a number of academic and cultural events and activities.
