The Li Ka Shing Liberal Arts Initiative

Intensive Chinese Language Program at Shantou University and 
Advanced Research Program at Shantou University

We are currently planning for the programs to take place in summer 2023 at Shantou University, China.

Details for summer 2023 will be posted on this website at the beginning of December 2022.

Please note: Many countries continue to have border restrictions and entry requirements in place for international travelers in order to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and its variants.

  • Countries can lift or implement travel bans or quarantine measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 at short notice and this may impact planned travels.

Enriching opportunities for students and scholars of McGill and Shantou Universities

Through a special partnership between McGill’s Faculty of Arts and the College of Liberal Arts of Shantou University, exchange opportunities are available for students and scholars from both institutions to share expertise, form research collaborations, and explore the distinct cultural, political and intellectual traditions of Canada and China. All programs are generously funded by the Li Ka Shing (Canada) Foundation.
