Visiting Students from China Shared Good Memories at Farewell Ceremony

Eight Visiting Students from Shaanxi University of Science and Technology (SUST), China, attended their Farewell Ceremony on Monday the 11th of November 2019 at Churchill House, Queen’s Park Campus.

The students were welcomed by Professor Phil Harris, Executive Director of Business Research Institute China Centre (BRICC) and their tutor representatives Dr. Phil Smith and Emma Simpson who gave welcome speeches, congratulating them on their achievements and giving them best wishes for their return to China. Two of BRICC Researchers Ying Zhao and Ann Qian also joined in the celebration and shared their thoughts on culture and education.

All students expressed their appreciation of the opportunity to study at the University of Chester, to come and visit the beautiful historical city of Chester and to stay with a local family. They were very happy to share their individual experience during the 3-month programme, including their home stay, British food, British culture, trips and activities they participated in, such as skydiving, visiting Bentley Motors during a field trip to Crewe and sightseeing in London, along with other experience that the students loved to share and would treasure as precious memories. Most students also expressed their wish to come back to the UK to pursue further academic achievements and study.
