Starting from the mid of June, thirty Macao’s undergraduate students will go to Nankai University in Tianjin for the 15-day exchange programme. They will learn from the city’s experience in cultural heritage conversation. Before departure, the students will have a preparatory class at IFT, taught by the Vice Dean of the College of Tourism and Service Management of Nankai University, Dr. Li Zhong, and Assistant Professor of IFT, Dr. Cora Wong, to get well prepared for the exchange programme.
