China

The PhD Workshop China is held annually in Beijing and Shanghai. This event provides an opportunity for several days to bring together professors, representatives of foreign universities and Chinese students who wish to start a PhD abroad; presentations are also organized to provide students with the best information.

This year, as the organizers were unable to organize this event, they proposed webinars to the usual PhD Workshop participants. As some institutions in French-speaking Belgium are present there every year thanks to the support of Wallonie-Bruxelles International - Wallonie-Bruxelles Campus, the Academic and Cultural Liaison Officer (ALAC) in China represented them during the webinar. During this online event that took place on December 8, 2020, the ALAC presented our higher education institutions to about sixty students who then asked many questions; exchanges are currently ongoing and will surely allow Chinese students to apply for doctoral programmes in Wallonia and Brussels!
