Program details

The Monash Chinese Intensive Language Program (CILP) is a highly intensive Chinese language summer course held at our Chinese partner universities in Shanghai and Beijing. CILP is a three or six week program that takes place each year at Shanghai International Studies University and at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. Both universities have outstanding reputations in foreign language and translation studies teaching and are members of China’s National Project 211 (100 key universities for the 21st century).

The Monash CILP caters for learners of various levels and allows students to complete one or two Monash Chinese language units within a Chinese language and cultural environment. The teaching materials, contact hours, course outline, assessment and workload of the Chinese Intensive Language Program units meet the requirement of the corresponding Chinese units offered at Clayton campus by the Monash Chinese studies Program.
