History & Classics

With over 5,000 years of rich history, China is one of the world’s oldest and most influential civilisations. The sheer diversity of China takes you from modern cities craving global prestige to isolated mountain-top Ming Dynasty villages where time effortlessly slips by.  Visit Beijing, home to China’s last imperial dynasty before the Chinese Revolution; Take a tour of the Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City and come face-to-face with the leader of the Cultural Revolution, Mao Zedong in Tiananmen Square.


 China is currently the largest manufacturing economy in the world and is quickly advancing in other markets globally.  This makes it an excellent insight into growing economies and consumer power.  Students have the incredible opportunity to learn first-hand the challenges of entering this market through exclusive meetings with Australian expats or sit in on presentations by large Chinese corporations.
