Abu Dhabi: Events to celebrate the ‘Year of Zayed’ in 2018 will reach China as Zayed University joins hands with the Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Cultural Centre and Mosque at Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) to unveil a series of activities planned for October.

The celebrations are expected to include a variety of seminars, panel discussions, and art exhibitions.

They will also include a special Arabic-Chinese literature translations display, as well as research findings by Zayed University’s faculty members to be displayed and possibly be included as part of Shaikh Zayed resource project and a ‘Teaching Skill Contest’ drawn from the 40 universities that offer Arabic courses in China.

The Zayed University exhibition will be held in BFSU China to promote the university as a possible destination for Chinese students. “Zayed University is very international in terms of faculty resource. The facilities of Zayed University are very advanced,” said Prof Reyadh Al Mehaideb, vice-president of Zayed University.

He added, “We will coordinate plans that develop bilateral student exchange opportunities which allow students to enrol in both institutions to gain more learning experience either through the regular academic programmes or extracurricular activities.”
