Dean He warmly greeted the guests. Both parties exchanged opinion of our cooperation programs.  So far, the 2+2 undergraduate joint training program between Monash and our university yielded a fruitful outcome. 10 of our grade 2012 students were admitted to Monash this year, among whom 4 had arrived and studied at Monash 2 weeks ago, and the other 6 students will reach Monash very soon.

In this meeting, both parties further discussed the proposed new “3.5+1.5” program. The “3.5+1.5”program is a due bachelor degree program combining our engineering / liberal art major + business major of Monash, i.e. if our undergraduate engineering or liberal art students fulfill all our required courses for graduation plus 4 business courses designated by Monash in their first 7 semesters at our university, they will be eligible to study at the business school of Monash for another 3 semesters. Upon completion they will achieve the business bachelor degree of Monash, meanwhile, if they complete the graduation design or pass the graduation thesis defense of our university, they will achieve the engineering or liberal art bachelor degree of our university as well. All our engineering or related liberal art students may apply for this program. This program was newly launched by Monash in Xi’an Jiaotong University last year.

Another topic of this meeting is the “3.5+1.5” bachelor and master consecutive study program. Under which, our undergraduate students will fulfill all required courses for graduation in their first 7 semesters at our university, then go to study at the business school of Monash for another 1.5 years. Upon completion they will be granted the business master degree of Monash. Given that the teaching plan of our accounting and economics school has been integrated with that of Monash’s, and the English version of our related course syllabus has been provided to Monash, this program will open to our students of accounting and economics school for application at the first stage.

Following the meeting, Professor Zhu gave a lecture on the Monash "2+2" program to our students in the Honyi building. She introduced in detail the history, advantages, curricula, teaching methods, campus life and the "2+2” program of Monash, which deepened our students’ realization of Monash. Board chairman Yuan Di-fan of ICRO further described the colorful overseas life and promising future in Australia. Professor Zhu then patiently answered the various questions raised by our students. In response to the question regarding the high tuition of Monash, Professor Zhu told our students that among the Group of Eight, an alliance of leading Australian universities recognized for their excellence in teaching and research, Monash was the only one “tri-certified” by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, the number of applicants for Monash grew each year, thus Monash business school raised its tuition annually in line with the market demands, nevertheless, the number of students applying to Monash remained high. To ensure the quality of students, Monash business school therefore decided to admit future “2+2” undergraduates in China only from those Chinese universities which had signed “2+2” cooperation agreements with Monash, which mirrored the market competitiveness of Monash. This lecture helped our students determine their study goal and inspired their study enthusiasm and interest to receive education at Monash.
