PPE world take over!
From India to China. The PPE students just got back from their India Summerschool, and PPE staff member dr. Patrick Overeem already went back to the East! Patrick visited Peking National University (PKU or ‘Beida’), one of China’s oldest and most prestigious universities, as part of the preparation of an exchange programme between PKU and our PPE-programme. In particular, he spoke with teachers and administrators of the National School of Development at PKU. The exchange will allow a number of PPE students to study the first semester of their 3rd year at PKU and to have a group of PKU students coming to the VU in return. As it turned out, our Chinese partners and we are very like-minded about the desirability and overall design of such an arrangement. Furthework on details and formalities still needs to be done, but we expect that the exchange can start in the academic year 2018-2019 onwards. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
