While there is some flexibility in dates, HIT generally offers a mid-May to August placement.
Students are responsible for their flights, health insurance, visas, vaccinations, food, and their additional travel budgets.
While many of the in country costs during the program are covered by the CLIC funding described below, students should plan to have access to sufficient funds for the first month of their program as the stipend functions more like a reimbursement since it's not disbursed until at least 2-4 weeks into the program.
CLIC funding is provided through two different sources: the CLIC Member Institution and the China Scholarship Council (CSC).
CLIC-CSC funding is provided to all students of CLIC Universities studying in China. This funding includes:
-tuition costs paid to HIT
- housing subsidy at HIT (if living in on-campus housing)
- monthly stipend (paid in China, usually towards the end of the program)
- free Chinese medical coverage (although students will still be required to purchase a Canadian travel medical plan to supplement the Chinese coverage)
The CLIC Member Institutions have also provided funding towards these programs. University of Calgary students will receive this funding through the Undergraduate International Research Grant or Global Access Fund.
