For those of you who wish to pay an in-depth visit to China but might not be available during the summer, here is a good news for you. CEEDS will organise a visiting camp to middle schools in China during Easter term break. The camp will start from Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province. After one week staying in Chengdu, we will fly to Eastern part of China and visit schools in Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Wuxi and Nanjing. We will interact with the students in each school and talk to them about our study and life in Cambridge, inspiring them to study hard to realize their dreams. The camp will also arrange sightseeing to places of interests in each city. Food, accommodation and all travel cost within China will be covered by CEEDS. There are only two openings available for this visiting camp. Please apply as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org with a relevant CV and a short statement.
