Zhanjiang opens students exchange program with Thailand
Zhanjiang in Guangdong province will send around 100 university students to Thailand for exchange study this year, said the city's education department on April 25.
The exchange program was facilitated last December during Mayor Wang Zhongbing's visit to ASEAN countries.
According to the plan, 70 students from Lingnan Normal University will have a 4-month paid internship in Thailand's middle and primary schools, starting from May 20. Another 22 students will study in Thailand's Rajamangala University of Technology in November.
As of May 20, the Zhanjiang-based normal university will receive around 60 students from Thailand universities such as the Chiang Mai Rajabhat University and Rajamangala University of Technology.
Meanwhile, Cunjin Institute of Guangdong Ocean University will have exchange programs with Rangsit University and Dhurakij Pundit University. Guangdong Medical University will send experts to visit medical tourism projects in Thailand in search of greater cooperation with local universities.
