Delegation from China’s Southwest University of Political Sciences and Law visits HSE Nizhny Novgorod campus
The visit by our Chinese partners is an organic part of the agreement between our universities to work together in academic and research fields. This year a group of Chinese students attended an HSE Nizhny Novgorod summer school and in September our students returned from Sichuan province where they were studying Chinese law-enforcement practices.
The visit from our colleagues at Southwest University began with a meeting with the students who asked them a lot of questions about the growing links between our universities and the opportunities to study abroad in China.
The same questions arose in the official meeting with the heads of the Nizhny Novgorod campus. Director of HSE Nizhny Novgorod, Professor V. Zussman praised the work done by the Chinese and the HSE Law Faculty to develop relations and then they discussed how to bring about short term placements and education programmes.They paid particular attention to joint publishing activity and setting up academic exchanges. The official part of the meeting ended with signing a cooperation agreement between our universities which stipulates both sides making an effort to find areas of interest for possible projects.
With the paperwork out of the way the guests were treated to a concert of opera music performed by Russian and Chinese students from the Nizhny Novgorod Glinka Conservatoire in the Austrian library.
