Recently, the Sino-foreign Humanities Exchange Center of the Ministry of Education replied to the Education Department of Hebei Province by letter that YSU was officially approved as one of the Chinese universities in the “Chinese and Foreign High-level University Students Exchange Program" (hereinafter referred to as the "the Program”) and the School of Materials Science and Engineering and the School of Civil Engineering and Mechanics of YSU will carry out the joint undergraduate training with the relative schools and departments of the Loughborough University in the UK and Queensland University in Australia.
As a participating institution of the Program, YSU has been actively coordinating peer-to-peer cooperation with foreign universities since the project was launched. The Office of International Cooperation, School of International Education, Office of Academic Affairs, Office of Admission and Employment and other functional departments, as well as the School of Materials Science and Engineering and the School of Civil Engineering and Mechanics have held many coordination meetings to formulate the joint training program and teaching plan, and promote related programs such as curriculum docking, two-way credit mutual recognition, and "2 + 2" segmented training.
At present, YSU has submitted its training plan of relevant Chinese professional courses to overseas cooperative institutions and is actively waiting for feedback, and the relevant follow-up work is also proceeding stably and orderly.
Guided by the concept of cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries, with the goal of cultivating the compound talents with international vision and cultural exchange literacy, the Program will help Chinese universities to benchmark world-class, establish a long-term mechanism of interaction and exchange with world-class universities, enhance the level of international exchange and professional construction, and play an important role in promoting the "Double First-class" construction and the high-quality development of higher education.
