Belgian university enrolls 3 Chinese PhD students

Didier Viviers, rector of Universite Libre de Bruxelles, handed admission letters to three Chinese students for a joint PhD program with East China Normal University yesterday in Shanghai.

Viviers was visiting Shanghai to further develop international collaboration between Chinese schools and the French university in Brussels, Belgium.

The three students, the first in the joint program, will study European law, mathematics and comparative literature at both universities while professors from the two institutions will collaborate on research.

“We want to have more partners in China and we are very keen on creating joint labs and facilitating collaborative research with Chinese universities,” said Viviers, who was impressed by the rapid development of education in China and was astonished to see many international students at Chinese universities.

“International collaboration programs can help enlarge students’ horizons,” Viviers said. "Many universities are doing different things for this same target."

Viviers said he would like to see more students and scholars from African and Asian countries study at ULB.

The university is also considering co-establishing a Confucius College with East China Normal University to provide an efficient platform for foreign students to learn Chinese.
