Incoming Exchange
Exchange programs provide opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students from our global partners to study at ZJU for one or two semesters. Students will be fully integrated into ZJU life and have access to all campus resources and services during their stay at ZJU.

Apart from semester-exchange, students can also choose to participate in our 3-week intensive but stimulating “Idea Explorer” Global Summer Program and have an enriching summer in the most entrepreneurial region of China.

Incoming exchange in spring summer 2021/22 is cancelled due to Covid-19. We look forward to welcoming you when situation allows.
