During the International Week from Nov. 29th to Dec. 2nd, the Office of International Cooperation (OIC) of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) invited representatives of six universities and institutions worldwide to the “Global vista” presentations, with the aim that USTC would have a platform to communicate with first-rate institutions of higher education in the world.
Included in the activity were Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, University of California, Davis, Columbia University, Campus France Chine, and Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst. They introduced various overseas exchange programs, approaches to studying abroad and related scholarship resources to students. In total, nearly 400 students were attracted to participate online.

CAI Yifu, the vice minister of OIC, expressed hearty welcome and sincere appreciation to the representatives of each institution in his opening greetings. He pointed out that lessons, research and international exchange are three indispensable elements for cultivating students in USTC. For this reason, USTC would help its students enter into first-rate platforms for scientific research by proactively cooperating with the world’s first-rate institutions, expanding channels for communication and making full use of resources.
The university has the core goals of becoming “Double First-Class” (first-class universities and disciplines of the world) and “focusing on moral cultivation”. In order to achieve these goals, OIC launched the systematic construction of “USTC Global VISTA” in 2020 centering on exploring channels, inspiring students and providing resources for studying abroad. USTC has, along with USTC Fellowship, integrated exchange programs, global study platforms, activities for building an international atmosphere on the campus and international publicity to facilitate the cultivation of students with a global vision.
