Since 18 March, 2019, International Office has invited around 10 overseas universities to visit our school, and that’s what we called “International Education Week”. From liaising with overseas schools to coordinating the visiting time, from the confirmation of itinerary details to the arrangement of the universities’ briefing, International office has done a very good pre-preparation and paving work for the smooth start of the event.
The first overseas university came to Eurasia was the University of Central Queensland, Australia. Firstly, one of the representatives of International Office gave CQ delegates a campus tour, and then had the seminar at Bird nest conference room, administration center. The main contents of the meeting included: First, retrospect and prospect of China-Australia class at present; Second, how to introduce and cooperate bilingual teaching/classroom in the future; Third, PHD advanced courses for Eurasian faculties. Last, potential establishment of 2019 China-Australia international class.
