More Chinese students to enrol at Bharathiar University for degree courses in English
Seventeen more Chinese students from Huaihua University, China, have enrolled to pursue degree courses in English at the Bharathiar University.
According to Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam, already 12 students were studying at the university. In addition to the 17 who have enrolled now, 24 are expected to join shortly. “Their admission is under process.
The students have applied for BA and MA degree programmes in English and Computer Science,” he said.
Since the university could only accommodate 30 students, the rest would be distributed to the colleges on the basis of their infrastructure availability and interest.
The Vice-Chancellor is pleased with the performance of the first batch. “They have completed first semester and their performance has been exceptional. When they came they did not know English.
In a matter of five months, they are able to converse and write without mistakes. This is a good sign. Both the students and faculty have put in lot of efforts for this outcome.”
According to the memorandum of understanding signed by both the universities, a martial arts expert in Kung Fu would come to Bharathiar University under the faculty exchange programme to teach students here. He would be available at the university from July 8 to September 8.
Similarly, a yoga teacher from Coimbatore would leave for Huaihua University.
