The China Programme is an exchange programme ran by Centria University of Applied Sciences since 1995.
It is offered to all universities of applied sciences and universities in Finland.

We organize two exchange periods during the academic year: during the Autumn semester and the Spring semester (lasting 3 months each).

Choose the university that suits best your field of study:

Shanghai University: business, culture, history and technology

Shanghai University of Medicine and Health Sciences: health care and social services
