News Release on China Trip

News Release on China Trip

Cartoon of Mao, Stalin, Marx, Lenin and Engels

The 25 person NZUSA delegation to the People's Republic of China will leave from Auckland from Hong Kong on Wednesday 4 July. The actual period of time in China itself will be from 5 - 25 July.

The trip will cost approximately $825.00 although students who wish to apply will be given access to bridging finance. This is so impoverished students can make the trip to China and gradually pay back the money later.

Unlike the selection process for the last student trip to China, candidates will not be required to submit a biography. They will, however, be personally interviewed by a selection committee consisting of the President of NZUSA, a member of the last NZUSA delegation to China and a person who lived in China before returning to New Zealand.

The delegation will undertake not so much a tourist trip to China but a trip designed to provide as many learning opportunities as possible about the political, social and cultural structure of the People's Republic. Students who are expecting a joy ride through the Peoples Republic need not apply.

Application forms are now available from the Student Travel Bureau of NZUSA and these applications should be completed and sent in by 7th June.
