'Although our programme was launched recently, we are vividly developing it and looking for more opportunities for our students which would help them broaden their horizons and gain complimentary experience. The double degree programme with Ca’ Foscari University is a unique chance for students-sinologists to get experience in international communication and study at a different university. We firmly believe that it helps our graduates become more competitive in the international labour market. For those who want to continue their research career, this programme can provide an additional boost to enrol in international PhD programmes.'
