EXPERTS partner universities in Finland and China forge agreement
As the world slowly evolves into one global village, more and more people see the benefits of an internationalized environment. Studying abroad not just benefits a student on the academic perspective, it helps build a person’s character, confidence and improves his or her personal and professional networks.
Aside from attracting international students to study full-time in their institutions, many universities, likewise offer student exchange programs which enable students to pursue a portion of their study program at one of their institution’s partner university. The popularity of student mobilities is proven by the sharp increase in the number of academic institutions offering student exchange program in the previous years. However, institutional agreements must be well-laid out at the beginning for such student mobilities to be successful.
On 24 October 2012, the USTC delegation led by Dr. Chen Chusheng, vice-president for academics with Prof. Li Bei, deputy dean of the Division for Undergraduate Teaching and Mr. Zhou Zhengkai, Deputy Director of International Office met with the University of Turku’s International Affairs Office, headed by Mrs. Irinja Paakkanen. It was in that meeting that both institutions agreed to forge a bilateral agreement that will formalize the implementation of the student exchange program, to help enhance the quality of education offered by the two universities.
The University of Turku boasts of its highly international environment and offers academic education based on high quality and often multidisciplinary research. It offers study and research opportunities in seven faculties: Humanities, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Medicine, Law, Social Science, Education and Turku School of Economics. The University is a member of the Coimbra Group, a network of prestigious universities in Europe.
Meanwhile, USTC is one of the premier universities in China noted for its advanced science and technology program, unique management studies and well-tailored disciplines in humanities. It is considered a pioneer in Chinese graduate education, as it was the first institution authorized by the State Council to award post-graduate degrees.
