The Pearl of the Orient

The blend of past and future works in Shanghai. From the cafés of the old French Concession to the modern apartment high-rises next to a decades-old temple, the combination is everywhere even if it’s not noticeable at first.

Teaching in Shanghai means being a part of it all. The fast-paced life can be daunting but experiencing the thrill of such a city is incomparable. Whether it's eating out at some of the world’s hottest restaurants, dancing to the beats of local DJs or shopping at cute boutiques, there is nothing like Shanghai.

Why Shanghai?

One of Asia’s hottest destinations for the arts. Visit M50 near Suzhou Creek, witness the latest exhibit at the Power Station of Art or see a new play performed at the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Center
