Description This unit provides students with opportunities outside the usual classroom experience. The unit uses knowledge acquired previously in the unit Chinese Cultural Policy and Practice and offers a real life application of this knowledge within a Chinese cultural context. Students will be required to travel to China for two to three weeks during their inter session break. While in China, they will visit important cultural and academic institutions and keep a daily diary of this experience. On their return to Australia students will be finalising assessment tasks required as part of this unit.
