CUHK (SZ) Reaches Tripartite Agreement with University of South Carolina and University of Auckland
Recently, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (“University”) has reached a tripartite agreement on exchange students with the University of South Carolina (“USC”) and the University of Auckland (“UAO”).
CUHK (SZ) professor Huge Thomas, USC professor Kendall Roth and UOA professor Susan Laurenson finalized the agreement after three years of negotiations.
According to the agreement, each party will send 10 students to participate in the project and form a class of 30 with students from other two universities. They will study at each of the universities for one academic term and return to their home university for their fourth year study. Students attending the project only pay tuition fees to their own university and will receive degrees from their own university. CUHK(SZ) SME students to be admitted in 2017 will benefit from the project.
The cooperation scheme will provide students with an opportunity to study and experience various cultures at the two world top universities, solidifying their multi-faceted knowledge structures and boosting the significance of cross-culture communications.
