Pre-Departure Event for Students Studying in Norway
On the 24th of June, with support from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Beijing, NorAlumni China hosted its annual pre-departure event for Chinese students going for an exchange semester/year in Norway.
About 18 students from Beijing Foreign Studies University and Beijing Normal University doing degrees in Norwegian culture and language attended the event, which gave them a unique opportunity to learn more about and ask questions on what student life in Norway looks like.
