- Attend lectures by professors of East China Normal University (Shanghai) and lectures by leading Russian experts.
- Learn how Russian international affairs experts and their Chinese colleagues approach problems with China’s and Russia’s development and their roles in the changing environment of global economics and politics. In 2014, Summer School instructors and participants will focus on the topic 'Space and Time in the Eurasian Era.'

- Gain experience in developing approaches to solving pressing international problems by participating in and preparing a joint project. And by presenting this project at the end of the Summer School!
- Lay the foundation for future professional contacts. At themed culture nights of the two countries, Russian undergrads and post-graduate students will be able to talk with Chinese peers and professors in an unofficial setting.
- Gain experience in intensive study, during which knowledge is acquired in the most effective way possible by alternating between lectures by experienced professors and open discussions.
Students who would like to continue their studies in China will be able to find out all details of interest directly from Chinese students, and future academics will have the chance to find an academic supervisor from China. All of this can be carried out in English, which is and has been in previous years, the official language of the Summer School.
