Career Enhancing Opportunity

Today it is more important than ever to stand out and to show that you have been going the extra mile. Participating in CBL International China Business School shows that you are very much interested in the legal development and the business legal environment in China. Being a delegate of this summer business programme ads a lot to your CV and you will gain a once in a lifetime experience which might will have a major impact on your personal, academic, and career development. Especially our China programmes show a very high ‘Return Rate’ – more than 60% of our delegates come back to China after having participated in our study abroad programme either to further study in China for any degree, for intensive language training, for an internship, or even for work. Many delegates have been finding jobs or internships via our CBL International network. As the programme also includes lots of site visits, company presentations, and excursions you will meet quite a number of lawyers, managers, and representatives of institutions or companies. So you can be sure that you will do a lot of networking during your time in Shanghai and Hangzhou or Beijing and Tianjin with CBL International as we will open many doors for you which are normally closed for the public.

College Credits

Combining lecture time, preparation, study time, and tests, each week of your study abroad programme is designed to be equivalent to 2 ECTS credits/1 US credit, in total for two weeks up to 4 ECTS/2 US credits. The work load of the programme will be confirmed in the certificate you will receive at the end of the course.

It is very important to mention that if you want to receive credits towards your degree at your university back home they have then to be transferred. To do so you can provide your school with all information and a copy of your certificate you receive from us. It is then the decision of your home university whether and how many credits you can transfer. So far we have already more than 100 universities worldwide offering their students to transfer credits from CBL International programmes into their degree courses at their home universities. We encourage all our delegates and everyone who is interested in participating to contact the study abroad office of your home university in advance to learn about the regulations and rules applicable to transfer credits. We are more than happy to provide you with our Academic Handbook for Universities so that your universities can receive additional information about the workload the all matters related to credit transfers.

Already hundreds of universities have granted credits to participating in CBL International programmes worldwide – touch base with us how to make that happen.
