The Faculty has a large percentage of employees, doctoral candidates and students with an international background. We also offer many international Master's programmes taught in English.
We cooperate with a number of universities, industry partners and organizations. Our students are encouraged to engage in global issues through courses included in our programs of study. The courses involve fieldwork in other countries, such as China, India and Tibet.
The faculty has had a continuous collaboration with Chinese, academic units in Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an and Nanjing since 1989.
