p1030450For the 5th year, 25 students arrived in bustling Beijing to begin their semester in the Transcontinental Beihang University. Students were quickly immerged into the campus environment upon their arrival and wasted no time getting started with all the formalities. Two members of the International Affairs team, Joëlle Silvestre and Mélanie Farissier, were there to assist them with the dormitory check-in and other processes. Additionally, a warm welcome was given by Mrs Bai, a Chinese Professor at Beihang, who provided much support to the students in the first days.

Along with the formalities the students attended an opening ceremony organised by Beihang University which was followed by a tour of the campus.

Apart from the courses, students will have the opportunity to discover the Chinese way of life, just in time for the Moon Festival!
