“Studying law in China is an excellent opportunity and I can’t think of any better place to do it than CUPL. My classes here are always interesting, students from different cultures and legal backgrounds discuss law in China with insightful and helpful professors”
Frederick from UK
“The curriculum was skilfully devised to allow students to learn a significant amount of detail in a relatively short period of time. The courses were taught by Chinese doctors and professors who seemed to have been very qualified in the area of law in which they specialised. The professors all presented their respective course in a very professional manner. I was particularly pleased that they were generally very open about their views on various national issues in China. I found Beijing to be an awesome city. It is a modern metropolis that is more westernised than I was made to believe before arriving there.”
Dwight from Bahamas
“The summer program gave me the possibility to fully appreciate both the lessons, held in the morning from very qualified professors, and the chinese culture and its lively society, with a lot of free time to spend enjoying the city and also through the activities, trips and meals organized by the university. As a student at CUPL, you will never forget this life experience.”Giacomo from Italy
“All the Professors were great. I’ve had a great time in Beijing and I thank CUPL and its staff for being so respectful to us.”Lucas from Brazil
