WHY THE CHENGDU AMERICAN CENTER FOR STUDY ABROAD?

G-MEO has created an English language, US-style learning environment, The Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad. Located in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province in China's Southwest, the Center is the pioneering idea of Global Maximum Educational Opportunities, Inc. Co-founder and Chairman Dr. David Chang. The Chengdu Center works with American University, Concordia University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Norwich University as Principal Partners, which offer a range of their courses every semester at the Center, making credits easy to transfer. The prestigious Sichuan University, one of the leading universities in China and the earliest higher education institute in Sichuan, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, is the host institution. The Center is located on the University's beautiful, downtown Huaxi campus, in one of its stately old buildings. You will study with a mix of other Americans and students from Sichuan University.

Dr. Ge Honglin, the Mayor of Chengdu, looks forward to welcoming all American students from member institutions of the Chengdu American Center of Study Abroad (Click here to see a copy of his welcome letter in English). He has also pledged to award a special scholarship to all students who spend a semester or more at the center.
