International students exchange programme
International student exchange programmes are divided into long-term and short-term exchange and learning programmes. At present, NCUK Hangzhou Centre has first cohort of international students from Grenoble, France. With the development of China's economy and the attraction of China, more and more international students are choosing China for long-term study exchange or internship. International exchange programmes play a positive role in enhancing mutual understanding between countries, promoting communication between different cultures, broadening students' international horizon, cultivating students' cross-cultural awareness, independent living ability and problem-solving ability.
Short-term international exchange involves students attending NCUK Centres in other countries for a semester or longer. Exchange students can choose to attend Centres in Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong and other regions. There, they can make new friends, study specific subjects and participate in activities. This exchange is facilitated by the fact that all NCUK Centres teach to the same curriculum and adopt the same international practices. These valuable experiences obtained through participating in international exchange programmes, are often valued by first class universities and enterprises throughout the world.
Similarly, students from other NCUK Centres will also come to NCUK Hangzhou Centre for exchange and study, making the classes in the NCUK Hangzhou Centre more international, and students can create their own international network for future benefit.
