On 23 April 2018, delegates from the Overseas Education College at Xiamen University led by the Dean of the Overseas Education College, Prof. Tao Tao visited the School of Sinology. Mae Fah Lung University has a long-standing relationship with Xiamen University especially in terms of student exchanges starting in 2007. This visit aimed at discussing further cooperation between the two parties.
In the discussion, Acting Dean of the School of Sinology, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kanjana Watanasuntorn purposed to developing a PhD dual degree programme with Xiamen University to provide a chance for lecturers from both universities to enrich knowledge and increase teaching capacity.
All in all, this discussion led to the possible fruitful cooperation in terms of visiting scholars, joint research, and international conferences in the hope of encouraging an exchange of research and knowledge as well as an increase in the number of papers being published in international academic journals. The deeper collaboration would indeed benefit the education system and also strengthen relations between the two countries.
