Started in 2012, the Experience China program during spring semester will see five students, from three different University of Wisconsin campuses, spend four months at Zhejiang International Studies University. Based on the success of the Wisconsin in Scotland program, Experience China provides participants an education abroad opportunity in Zhejiang, which is located in the eastern part of the country. “Experience China is one of our campus’s newest educational abroad programs. It began in the fall of 2012 and the idea was to replicate what had been a very successful model for us in Scotland,” said Kelsey Mclean, the program coordinator.
