Students in China invited to study online with Cornell University faculty
School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions, August 8, 2016
Cornell University invites high school and college students in China to apply to the Cornell-China College Program (CCCP), an acclaimed program of online study featuring undergraduate classes taught by Cornell faculty members. Applications will be accepted until September 30, 2016, for courses running from January to May, 2017.
Designed to give students a foundation for future study in the U.S. or elsewhere in the world, the program includes courses in international relations, macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, sustainability, leadership, and college success.
The first five of these carry academic credit, while college success is a non-credit course that helps students develop strategies for achieving academic excellence.
Students who participate in CCCP can expect to:
- earn credits and a transcript from Cornell;
- take real Ivy League courses;
- study with top faculty;
- learn what college admissions offices look for;
- enjoy a flexible study schedule; and
- gain skills needed to succeed in a global society.
Kenan Jiang, a student at Xi’an Tie Yi High School, took the leadership course earlier this year. He writes, "The CCCP program offers me a valuable opportunity not only to experience Cornell University courses but also to practice my English and improve my study skills. This program has helped me a lot in my university applications and is preparing me for study abroad."
Danning Lu, a student at The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China, writes that civic ecology became one of her strongest academic subjects after she took the sustainability course last spring. “Moreover, I derived great pleasure and a sense of achievement from the community service part, and I feel inspired to engage in social ecology in the future. In a word, I am so grateful for the opportunity CCCP provided."
