Have you ever studied Chinese before and want to continue? We invite you to take advanced courses to improve your skills and become a true Chinese language and culture expert.

VU Confucius Institute offers Chinese language courses of levels 4-10. Courses are divided into trimesters during the school year: autumn (September-December), winter (January-March), spring (April-May). The duration of one trimester is 40 academic hours.
In response to the growing need to learn Chinese, this year we have also launched courses for entrepreneurs who have or intend to have business relationships with China. This semester we are making a new group of BUSINESS CHINESE courses and we have one continuous group since last semester. Online courses with a flexible schedule in the mornings or during lunch, led by Chinese-speaking teachers. Course duration 8 weeks. Register here.
