We are constantly working on the best way to help students get out to China. In recent years the price of accommodation in China has significantly increased, but at CSA we can’t and won’t lower the standards of where we are willing to place our students when they sign up for CSA apartments. What we can do is help students out who are on a budget. This might mean they are willing to live in slightly less appealing apartments that we couldn’t usually offer, or even shared apartments with 3 or 4 other people in them. As a way of trying to help out new arrivals in China, we’ve put together a Housing Help options for those straight off the plane.
- 2 full days of apartment hunting with a CSA Staff Member
- Continued Phone support and access to CSA Staff
How It Works
Sign up for our Housing Help option with your CSA Program and we’ll be there at the airport to pick you up on arrival in China as usual. We’ll then take you to whatever hotel or hostel you have booked. If you need advice on where to stay before you arrive, just let us know and we can recommend plenty of good options depending on your budget! We’ll arrange a time to meet up with you over the next day or so to start the housing hunt. You’ll be assigned a CSA staff member who will take you around for the next 2 days acting as your translator and helping you contact as many local agents as possible. They will be available for you for two days, each an 8 hour day. After the two days we’ll have taken you around the area and put you in contact with as many agents as possible so you should be set to go. We’ll still be available after these two days over the phone though if you need any more help.
Please note that the housing rental system in China is a little different, typically the agents don’t keep the keys so expect long days and a lot of waiting. We advise that you bring a book or something to keep you occupied. Or you can just practice your Mandarin with the CSA staff member to give you a head start before your classes begin!
*Only available to those who have signed up for one of our Mandarin Programs
