Our Functions

Centre for Chinese Programmes aims to introduce the cultural heritage of the historical city of Changshu to teachers and students in the School through cultural activities, lectures and forums. Meanwhile, it also aims to promote the diversity of culture within UWC community to the public.  On the one hand, Chinese students and teachers can benefit from a strong national identity, and on the other hand foreign students and teachers can enjoy and appreciate the charm of Chinese culture. With its unique multicultural background, Yushan Academy provides a place to explore best practices and ideas in international education, a window for the world to meet Changshu, and a platform for meaningful academic and cultural exchanges among institutions of higher learning in the Asia Pacific region, and with the local  community.  Yushan Academy is poised to contribute to the building of a global village in Changshu, where people from around the world live in peace and harmony.
