International Symposium on Study in China and International Student Services

Theme:Building Core Competencies for Study in China: Challenges, Opportunities and New Trends
Time:  October 19 13:30-19 17:00,2018
Room:307B

As the biggest destination country for study abroad in Asia and the second largest economy in the world, China has become both an important sending and receiving country of international students. To respond the demand of Belt and Road Initiative and the University Double First-Rate Scheme, challenges and opportunities are associated both with enlarging overall pool of international students and improving structure of the students’ sources. The international student service is the key to fullfill the requirement of 500,000 foreign students in 2020 mentioned in Study in China Plan. Speakers from national government, international education organizations, universities and companies will share their views and discuss the trends on the key issues related to international student service, including laws and regulations, recruitment system, course development, campus service, informatization construction and job service and internship. The《Study in China》(English version)will be released at this forum, and participants can get it free of charge.
