ZUMC China Trip – Week Four

The week started slowly and on Monday and Tuesday we were worked hard in our classes and set projects/essays to be completed over ‘National Week’.

National Week in China is a week long public holiday commemorating the day the ruling Chinese Communist Party was incepted in Shanghai on October 1st 1949.

Towards the end of the week, the campus was eerily quiet with many students returning home or travelling around the country – just generally making the most of the generous time off.

In preparation for national week we attended a gala and ‘opening ceremony’ at the new Zhejiang University of Media and Communication (ZUMC) campus opening in the next district from Xiasha, where we are staying, called Tong Xiang. The new campus is a joint initiative between Coventry University, ZUMC and the Tong Xiang local government.
