This spring, Sichuan
University has launched a new study abroad program that offers a wealth of
opportunities to SCU students who want to complete part of their undergraduate
or graduate studies overseas or in Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan. In the coming
year, students supported by SCU’s “Global Horizons” International Student
Exchange Program will set out for one of over a hundred universities around the
world. The goal of the program is to educate students who are globally aware,
competent in their interactions with students and professors from different
countries, internationally competitive and, while grounded in their own
culture, capable of studying global issues from different angles and open to
the world at large.
In addition to improving the
quality of education at Sichuan University, the program aims to promote SCU’s
development as a world-class university. In recent years, SCU has engaged in
cooperation and exchanges with 268 universities and research institutions in 34
countries and regions in Canada, Europe, Australia, Hong Kong, Macao and the
US. Apart from this, SCU has entered comprehensive, multi-level, strategic
partnerships to carry out joint education programs at 214 top universities in
33 countries and regions around the globe. SCU’s “Global Horizons” program will
also offer overseas internship placements helping students to prepare for a career focused on international engagement.
Stipends are available to SCU students going abroad to assist students with the costs of relocation and overseas studies.
