Discover China

What are your plans next summer? Fancy exploring China instead? You could:

  • learn some basic Chinese to practice with the people you meet
  • try your hand at calligraphy, painting and martial arts
  • enjoy trips to Huzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai
  • and lots more!

The trip costs around £1,300, which includes your flights, accommodation, travel and food. You’ll need to be at least 18, and a student with us, the University of Plymouth or another UPC college.
