Since the University cannot rule out that COVID-19 will still be lingering and posing a threat to global public health in the coming few months, the University has decided to suspend all winter outbound programmes in the academic year of 2020/21, given our students’ safety and well-being always remains our top priority.

 

To promote the good practice of continuous learning, students are encouraged to make good use of the winter time and join some fun online programmes from the comfort of your home! With easy access to the Internet nowadays, you can enjoy internationalisation no matter where you are and whenever you want. Participating in one of the following online courses is a great way to immerse yourself in fruitful virtual learning with professors from Estonia, France, Germany, Japan and South Korea, and to get connected with international students all over the world. You are recommended to choose your favourite programme and apply with the host institutions directly.
