On 26 October SCIT welcomed a delegation from Dalian University which came to Herzen university. A visit to SCIT was only a part of their extensive programme in the university. Short though it was, the meeting was very productive. Deputy director Angelique Antonova told the guests about SCIT’s activities and the experience of the joint program with Geneva university. Both parties agreed that it can serve as an examlpe for future cooperation with Dalian university. The head of the delegation Rector Lu Hung confirmed that both teachers and students from DAlian are interested in SCIT’s expertise in training language specialists. We hope that the meeting will give an impetus to new interesting projects with Dalian.
