CSU campus

The campus of CSU is located in Changsha. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. CSU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
