Chinese English Teachers Programme

FIS events for CSC training programme students – SPRING 2018

The events below are for Chinese University English Teachers on the CSC training programme.

Some of our main events are open to all, some are special events for this CSC group, including the Culture Course afternoons, which will be more detailed but cover the same topics as the Culture Course evenings (N.B. the Culture course evenings on the main programme are only for degree and Masters/PhD students only).
