Nanchang University Program

Calling all second and third year Computer Science and Information Technology students…spend 2-4 weeks during Semester 2 in China studying towards your ECU degree!

As part of the strategic planning for the internationalization of learning for students, ECU has formed a partnership with Nanchang University to encourage students to study in China.

Be part of this first group of ECU students to study at Nanchang University School of Software (NCUSS) in China for two - four weeks* during semester 2, 2012. The group will be led by an ECU lecturer who will oversee the program.

Nanchang University is located in central China in Nanchang city, Jiangxi province, which is south of the Yangtze River.

*Exact program duration to be determined.

Academic program and credit*

During the program at NCUSS you will be studying the following four units that will be credited towards your ECU course:

  • CSG2312 Foundations of Software Engineering
  • CSP2348 Data Structures
  • CSI2343 Object-oriented Analysis and Design
  • ISS3101 International Science Project (includes studying Chinese language and culture) 

Two of the above units will be taught by an ECU lecturer and two units will be taught by NCUSS lecturers.

You will continue to pay ECU tuition fees during the program at NCUSS.
