Provost Prof Chen Zhi gave a lecture on Liberal Arts Education. He mentioned that UIC is the first liberal arts university in Mainland China. Although it is a concept imported from the West, UIC has made successful attempts at integrating Chinese elements in the past 15 years. From courses to student clubs, UIC has allowed students to be exposed to the influence of Chinese culture, absorb Chinese wisdom and promote the spirit of Chinese culture.

Prof Chen believes that in liberal arts, Chinese education and internationalised education are parallel and mutually reinforcing. Every year, many graduates go to world-renowned universities for further study and are therefore ambassadors who can spread Chinese culture and wisdom.

Ms Mary Lin, Director of the Admission Office at UIC, explained about admission policies and scholarships to the audience.

This year, UIC will recruit 1,900 Mainland students from 30 provinces across the country.
