Study Abroad in Shanghai, China with CEA

Experience Shanghai

Shanghai is home to dozens of offices for foreign and U.S.-owned companies, including Google, Microsoft, Cigna, Coca Cola, Nike, Motorola, Proctor and Gamble, and more. The largest city in China with 23 million residents, Shanghai is also home to more than 150,000 expats from the U.S. and other countries – more than double the number of registered foreigners in 2005, making Shanghai a true international melting pot of the East.
'Exciting' doesn't do this international city justice. It's a bustling metropolis with a must-have mentality towards anything Western, hip and ultra-modern. Shanghai is the perfect choice for students wanting to witness the making of China's future.

  • Choose between unique academic settings, including our CEA Shanghai Center, which offers interactive, small classes and is hosted on the campus of East China Normal University
  • Or immerse yourself in student life on campus at Shanghai Normal University, our local International Partner
  • Experience the emergence of China as a global economic power first-hand in one of China's most vibrant and business oriented cities
  • Take advantage of a myriad of opportunities to engage the Chinese culture through visits to local businesses, landmark sites and monuments, guest lectures and activities that give you an up close and personal look into Shanghai's citizens
