Welcome to the School in China!

Whether you’ll be studying with us in Beijing or Kunming, for a semester or for a year, we welcome you to an adventure that will give you a new perspective on this culture and language that you have been studying.  China is a large, rich, and complex country with more than just a single culture, and we invite you to ask us questions as you explore our country while at the Middlebury School in China (MiC).

Middlebury endeavors to present an accurate overview of the programs, facilities, and fees of the Schools Abroad in this publication. However, Middlebury reserves the right to alter any programs, facilities, fees, policies and/or procedures described in this publication without notice or obligation. This handbook is published on the Middlebury Schools Abroad website; any changes after initial publication will be made on the web and such changes shall supersede all prior versions of this handbook.

Please use the tabs (and drop-downs) above, or links below, to take you to various sections of this online handbook.  We look forward to welcoming you to China soon!
