Our Short-term Programs
At present, Westlake University has attracted nearly one hundred scientists to join us. Each scientist is responsible for an independent laboratory. There are 39 laboratories open with internship positions at the School of Life Sciences. These programs run for two months, July through August, annually.
During the internship, interns can work with a selected laboratory. The specifics of each program are specially formulated by the laboratory tutors with the interns. In addition to studying and doing projects with the instructor in the laboratory, interns also can participate in all of the academic activities of the school!
For example, in “WE News & Ideas”, students can feel the fierce collision of new ideas and new discoveries. In “WeSalon”, students can listen to what other labs in the school are doing. Moreover, various famous teacher forums and special academic lectures are also open to interns.
The summer camp plans to recruit 80 students. The camp’s activities include school introductions, academic lectures, “face-to-face talks with chair professors” (Professor Yigong Shi, etc.), unrestricted access to PIs, doctoral student exchange meetings, and laboratory visits. After participating in summer camp activities, students will receive a certificate of completion of the ‘Westlake University Life Science Summer Camp’. There are also certificates for the camp’s top performers.
Graduate courses are divided into common degree courses, core degree courses and elective courses, among which the common degree courses and core degree courses constitute degree courses. Common degree courses include: political theory, foreign languages, foreign languages in special fields. Core degree courses include elementary degree courses and specialized degree courses. Elective courses include, common elective courses, specialized elective courses, and cross-disciplinary elective courses. Elementary degree courses enable graduate students to learn and master the basic theories and research methods of a discipline. Specialized degree courses are for graduate students to acquire systematic specialized knowledge, broaden their theoretical foundations and improve their professional capacity. Elective courses are for graduate students to further broaden their theoretical foundations, expand their knowledge and improve corresponding abilities.
Required procedures refer to the education procedures that graduate students must complete and pass before applying for their degree, including dissertation proposal, qualifying examination, dissertation pre-examination and academic activities and practice etc. Graduate students should participate in the compulsory training program and pass the corresponding assessment according to relevant requirements.
