The Wuhan University International Summer Program receives university students from many
parts of the world and provides those interested in Chinese culture an opportunity to have a
direct contact with China.

The first International Summer Program occurred in June of 2006 and the second was held in
June and July of 2007. Participants resided on campus, attending lectures on Chinese culture,
history, economy and geography, as well as enjoying a number of field trips to points of interest
in and around Wuhan.

This program offers an opportunity for greater integration and cooperation between
westerners, including Brazilians, and their Chinese counterparts, through a more direct contact
between cultures.
