Chinese language preparation is in small groups, and you will be placed in a suitable class depending on your language ability together with other international students. While there are translators available during clinical practice, very few patients can speak English so even basic Mandarin skills improve clinical performance and the patient doctor relationship significantly.

For accommodation your first month of accommodation in a large room with private bathroom is already included in the program, but if you want you can upgrade it to a homestay as well. For the rest of your stay you can choose between living with a Chinese homestay family, live & teach, shared apartment, or just find your own accommodation.
