Saudi Arabia Department of Education had invited Tsinghua University to take part in the sixth Saudi Arabia's International Higher Education Exhibition from April 13th to April 18th, 2015. Ms. Yan Zhang, Deputy Director of Tsinghua University International Students Office (ISO) joined the exhibition together with two officers from the Academics Office and the Department of Computer Science.
During the exhibition, the Chinese ambassador to Saudi Arabia visited the booth of Tsinghua University, and encouraged Tsinghua to recruit more excellent students from Saudi Arabia and neighbor countries. Many local students came to inquire about studying at Tsinghua, and showed great interests in the Master’s and doctor programs in medical science and engineering disciplines. In particular, the English-taught Master’s programs were much attractive.
Currently Tsinghua has one student from Saudi Arabia who is studying in the Department of Architecture as a Ph. D. candidate. This exhibition will surely expand Tsinghua's international impact and help with the recruitment of international students from this region.
