Architecture College Trips & Tours to China

Students on a study tour to China will discover a country of contrasts. In recent years the economy has exploded to become the world’s second largest, meaning that the huge modern cities of Shanghai and Beijing sit alongside the more traditional way of life still in existence in the countryside.

Discover the ancient history of the Terracotta Warriors in Xian and visit the desert landscapes of the Silk Road and of course, The Great Wall. Architecture students will find lots to tie in with their learning -  Its distinctive culture and landscapes will provide a welcome backdrop, and we are sure any study tour to China will leave you with a new found understanding for this vast country.
