PiB 2020 Status Update

April 9, 2020: Due to the prevalence of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, and in New Jersey in particular, Princeton in Beijing regrets to announce the cancellation of the New Jersey program. 

March 4, 2020: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and consequent travel restrictions to mainland China, Princeton in Beijing will no longer run this summer’s program in Beijing. At the same time, we are working to arrange a substitute program at a site near Princeton, NJ. If this effort succeeds, our basic program will not change; program dates, program costs, curricular structure, and adherence to a Chinese Language Pledge will stay the same.

Princeton in Beijing has been an absolutely unforgettable experience. Everything from the learning material to the teachers have been stellar. I can confidently say that my Mandarin has improved a lot since I arrived in Beijing two months ago.”

"Everything here at PiB has really been fantastic. I especially like the Individual Sessions and Chinese Table opportunities to engage our professors on a more personal level. While difficult, I have enjoyed every aspect of PiB and have greatly improved my Chinese."
