Eleven staff and students from Nanjing Institution of Technology in China are spending four weeks on a study short course at Otago Polytechnic.
They’re studying Intensive English, Design and Engineering.
The group will spend three weeks at the Dunedin campus, a week at Otago Polytechnic’s Central Otago campus, and they’ll wrap their tour up with a weekend in Queenstown.
Nanjing Institution of Technology and Otago Polytechnic established the partnership in 2015. This is the second group of students to visit Dunedin, and one Dunedin delegation visited Nanjing, China in 2016.
International Relationship Developer, Yuan Pei, says the relationship offers a wonderful opportunity for students from both institutes.
“These visits allow students to experience the New Zealand education system, as well as Kiwi family life as they’re all billeted with Dunedin families. Throughout the programme, they also get to go sightseeing around our beautiful region.”
In the future, the short course programmes will also visit Otago Polytechnic’s Auckland campus.
