Be & Go 


Whether you studied German, Geography or Graphics for your undergraduate degree, there are an abundance of (funded) opportunities to seize amazing opportunities in China. Whilst tuition fees for UK Masters Programmes are relatively cheap when compared with the USA for example, not everyone can whip out £10,000 for tuition along with a further £10,000 for maintenance costs. 

MyBambooBridge has sought to provide information on Masters Programmes, Language Programmes and everything else in between so that if you feel at a loss after graduation, you might consider spending some time in China. So many of these programmes are funded, so you shouldn't have to feel that the state of your bank account will prevent you benefiting from the same incredible opportunities as others.
