Free public talk on China: "Chinese Students Today"

07 Jun 2010

To be given by Dr Xun Zhu on 15 June

The Confucius Institute is pleased to offer a free public talk on Chinese Students Today on Tuesday 15 June from 12.45 to 1.30 pm, in Room A102, Samuel Alexander Building. You can expect insightful and practical information. Moreover, you will learn one useful phrase and two characters during the session!

There is an increasing number of Chinese students selecting the UK as their educational destinations, thus they provide an important and stable source of university funding. This talk will explain and analyse Chinese students’ characteristics from multiple angles, socio-politically, educationally and culturally. Some suggestions will also be provided on how to help Chinese students adjust academically and culturally to a very different educational environment.

You don't need to book a place for the talk - just turn up.
