Die Delegation in China
The delegation of Austrian higher education institutions visited Shanghai, with the goals to promote Austrian education exports and facilitate educational exchanges between Austria and China.

The delegation consisted of reresentatives of the following institutions: University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt, University of Applied Sciences Krems, Danube University Krems, Modul University Vienna, FH Technikum Wien University of Applied Sciences, Webster University, Sigmund Freud University and New Design University.

The OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai organised a programme with a whole series of events; the Austrian Trade Commission Hong Kong organised events in Hong Kong.

We visited, for example, the High School affiliated to Fudan University (HSAFU). Founded in 1950, HSAFU is one of the leading high schools in China.

We held a presentation session at the prestigious Fudan University, addressing all those who are interested in studying in Austria. Fudan has approximately 2500 degree-seeking international students and more than 50 international lecturers. More than 50% of its full-time undergraduates have the opportunity to go abroad as exchange students or visiting students before they graduate.

The delegation, along with staff from OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai and Austrian Trade Commission Hong Kong, attended the 2018 China Education Expo (CEE). CEE is an exhibition hosted by the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) since 2000, acclaimed as one of the most significant events for overseas schools to boost their publicity in China.
