- Kyle Rich, 2019 Korea Thailand

"The Korea China Field Studies Program was definitely one of the most memorable highlights of my college life. From the knowledge I learned from every scene of the trip, to the long-lasting friendships that I have made, the program provided me with a platform to expand my network. Thus, the three-week experience of living in multiple Asian cities had drawn a different guidance on my future route. Instead of being stuck in a traffic circle with no exit, it brought me to a road with more opportunity stations to fill up my tank for success. Every journey is started with an initiation, and I believe this field studies program was my initiator for my journey."

- Nigel Lai, 2018 Korea China 

"The 3-week trip provided me with much more than expected. The perfect combination of business and culture offered me the chance to experience the real China and Korea that I cannot see from textbooks. We visited many historical sites, Korean universities, and world famous companies. The authentic Korean food, local markets with a large variety of products, and the beautiful sceneries were all great memories from the trip. In addition, both instructors were very knowledgeable, responsible and helpful during the trip. I really appreciate this opportunity and would definitely recommend this to others."

Along with countless memories, lifelong friends, and career-building skills, the program provides the opportunity for any student looking to add to their international travel checklist and gain invaluable experience."

- Brendan Wong, 2017 China

"My experience participating in the 2016 China Field Studies Program was the most memorable experience of my post-secondary education. I loved our classes in Shenzhen. It was so interesting to see what post-secondary school is like in China. I highly recommend this program to any student, no matter what area is the focus of your studies. I felt safe and well taken care of by our instructors and guides and had the opportunity to visit and experience amazing cities and sights in China. If you’re on the fence, you should take the plunge - you’ll have fun and learn way more than just your course material."

- Kira Daley, 2016 China

"The China Field Study was an experience of a lifetime. I was able to learn about China's culture and business practices through first-hand experiences and by building personal relationships with local students and professionals. The curriculum was well-suited to our learning objectives but also allowed us the freedom to explore other areas of interest. My favourite moment was visiting Dafen Painting Village during our free time. We befriended some local artists and were invited to their gallery opening. I would recommend the China Field Study to anyone who wants to incorporate travel into their studies."
