Academic Activities and International Academic Exchange

  • At least 10 academic seminars per year are held, including inviting international prestigious scholars to give speeches.
  • Medium to large international and domestic academic seminars are routinely held.
  • The College of Education in CCU has the agreement on “Co-organization of Cross-country Dual DegreeProgram” with the College of Education in UCLA and in the University of Pittsburgh. We actively exchange with other universities and academic institutes.
  • The Institute had academic exchange with UCLA in 2005 and 2007 respectively and in total there were 32 master and doctoral students taking the summer course in UCLA. This has fostered the dual degree program with the College of Education UCLA and it helps broaden students’ international horizon of education researches.
