Características Únicas

  • Cultura Chinesa - Cada estudante deve escolher ao menos um curso em chinês, seja de aquisição da língua, literatura ou cultura, criando um ambiente de imersão em mandarim assim como um rico contexto da cultura chinesa, que enriquece o aprendizado e ensino. Enquanto isso, o programa Zhi Xing ("Aprender fazendo“) permite a exploração da cultura chinesa por meio de interações com a comunidade do entorno.
  • Liderança - Muitas das atividades do programa Zhi Xing são lideradas por estudantes, que usam seu conhecimento e experiência para ajudar colegas de classe a superar quaisquer limitações nessas atividades, agindo como modelos a serem seguidos por seus pares, enquanto também se desafiam.
  • Responsabilidade Ambiental - Estudantes participam de atividades como reciclagem, agricultura orgânica e preservação de pântanos, gerando impacto positivo para a comunidade.
Acadêmico 

UWC Changshu China offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) curriculum, and a Pre-IBDP Program for Grade 10 students.

The Pre-IBDP Program aims at allowing students to acquire the skills and knowledge needed for successful entry into the IBDP program.

Within the IBDP curriculum, alongside standard courses, UWC Changshu offers foundation Chinese language programs (for international students), Geography, Economics, Philosophy, Global Perspectives, Chinese Studies, Theatre, Visual Arts, Spanish, French and German.

Extracurricular 

UWC Changshu China named the Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) program Zhi Xing, which means ‘learning by doing’ as well as ‘putting knowledge into action’. It enables the exploration of Chinese culture within the School and through interactions with the wider community. Many of the activities, such as Chinese performing arts, calligraphy, or Chinese musical instruments, have a direct focus on Chinese culture, allowing international students to understand Chinese culture holistically. Such activities also provide opportunities for Chinese students to share and further explore their own culture. Other activities, such as volunteering in local homes for the aged, schools and community centers, stretch the boundaries of our students’ education to include local Chinese culture, people and environment.

Project weeks are an invaluable learning opportunity for the students, which allow them to put UWC values into action. Happening once a year, students get to explore a remote area of China. Members of the faculty lead IBDP students to less developed regions of China to participate in a week of public service. Students have the opportunity to interact with the local community through teaching, outreach and other community oriented activities. These trips also grant students insight into the different levels of economic development in China.
