UQ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students embrace Chinese culture

25 September 2019

The UQ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (ATSIS) Unit in partnership with the Confucius Institute at The University of Queensland (UQ CI) supported a month-long experience to China this year for three engineering students.

The students, Mr Ashley Hughes, Mr Riley Norris and Ms Greta Stephensen were immersed in cultural and academic activities in the four-week program based at Tianjin University (TJU), one of the top 10 universities in China.

Mr Ashley Hughes said “local tutors and volunteer students accompanied the group at night and spoke very good English. This encourages you to put more effort into your Chinese as they have put effort into our language.”
