The China Experience: The Service
Traveling and studying in a foreign country is fun and exciting, but there are definitely times when language barriers and cultural differences can present real roadblocks during a student's stay. CSA’s dedicated 24-hour student support network is designed to remove these roadblocks, plus any additional hassle and stress, to make their stay in China as stress-free and safe as possible. Simply put, our students are here to focus on studying, learning and making the most of their time in China – we deal with any problems that may present themselves.
This student support starts from the very moment you get in touch with CSA. We'll help you with any questions or decisions you may have and of course walk you through the simple sign up process. Once you've made any final decisions, we'll prepare all the visa documents from the university for you. When you arrive in China, you'll be met by one of our staff at the airport. From there students are taken to their accommodation, given an orientation of the city and their immediate surroundings, and introduced to other CSA program participants.
Then, from full assistance with registering at school or university, to help buying a local SIM card, CSA takes all the difficulty out of settling into a new country so our students can hit the ground running with their studies. The best way to learn Mandarin and immerse yourself in your new country is without the distractions of the mundane, and that's what we're here to do!
Throughout the duration of each student's stay, they will have 24 hour access to English speaking staff should any problems arise. Whether it's helping to open a local bank account, arranging to have a toilet unblocked, getting a visa extended or even helping to chat with a taxi driver to get the student where they need to go, we make sure that no student ever feels like they are left on their own.
