Canadian Learning Initiative in China
The Canada Learning Initiative in China (CLIC) is a unique program that is encouraging more Canadian students to discover rich experiential learning opportunities in China. Through an innovative framework of specialized programming, advising and funding, CLIC is designed to address the needs and objectives of Canadian students who wish to pursue studies abroad, in this case, with a focus on China. Over many years, the higher education landscape in Canada has seen a major difference between the number of Chinese students studying in Canada versus the number of Canadian students undertaking study in China. In order to address this gap, CLIC was established in February 2016 to create new and accessible learning opportunities for Canadian students in China.
Note: This is ideal for summer exchange opportunities.
