    Winter Vacation

    Winter Break starts in mid-January. It’s nice to spend the holiday season at home.

    At the same time, keep in mind COVID-19 prevention measures. Please reduce unnecessary outdoor activities, avoid going to densely-populated areas and do not go to risk areas or nearby.



    Spring Festival

    The week of Feb. 12 is the national holiday for the Chinese to celebrate the commencement of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. Everyone is surrounded by a festive atmosphere to welcome the Spring Festival.


    Class Begins

    Mar 8 is the first day of class. Everyone should attend class and keep studying hard.

    Beyond that, various international student clubs and associations start recruiting new members. You can follow us on Wechat (dhu-ices) to get first-hand information.


    Spring is Coming

    Graduation Season

    In June, many students will leave DHU in this month and fly to all corners of the world to start a new chapter of life. It is a great step toward your future success. On behalf of the entire Donghua community, we offer a heartfelt “Well done”. We look forward to seeing you back any time in the future!


    Summer Holiday

    The summer vacation begins in mid-July and ends at the end of August. Streets in the city start steaming with more and more heat, but our Summer Chinese Programs could be a good place to cool you down.

    We can ensure that you will have a wonderful time during this immersion course and create an unforgettable experience.


    Summer‘s Tail

    Summer holiday is ending and the fall semester is about to start. We believe you are ready for the new beginning! New students shall carry the corresponding study visa (X1/X2) or Residence Permit to enroll. Those who have reserved the dormitory shall make sure the reservation is successful. If the dormitory is not available, you need to rent an apartment outside.

    Keep Warm

    As the weather turns cold, our study life is still in full swing.
