Australia-China Student Forum

The Australia-China Student Forum (ACSF) - Bridging for Excellence & Prosperity is jointly organised and sponsored by La Trobe University and Peking University, China. The forum has been developed following the success of the Student Cross Cultural Program (SCCP) established in 2007.

The ACSF in Australia and China is comprised of two phases:

  • Phase I - Learning and Experiencing comprises 'focused topic' seminars by academics or professionals, student discussions, visits to key cultural, commercial and government organizations and language classes.
  • Phase II - Presentation and Dialogue comprises keynote sessions by high profile speakers, student presentations and a dialogue on the focused topic.

Interactive activities with local students and communities, cultural activities and excursions will also be included in the Program. Students will be encouraged to submit group papers at the end of the program and selected papers will be published in a monograph compiled every two years by the Centre for China Studies. The findings and recommendations arising from the forum will be disseminated through the Centre's website.

All participants will receive a certificate from the hosting university upon successful completion of this program.
