In these seven universities, the types of cooperation including double-degree programs of “2+2,” “2+2+1,” “3+1,” and “3+1+1.” They also introduced the international ranking, characteristics, admission requirements and fees of each school.
Prof. Yu-Te Tu, a teacher of AU, takes the “2+2+1” academic system as an example, in which a student studies at AU for two years and studies at a well-known foreign university or research institute for the other three years to get a master’s degree. Furthermore, the “3+1+1 program” means that by studying three years in AU, one year in a foreign university, and one year in a foreign graduate school, a student can also get two bachelor degrees from two universities and a master degree from a foreign graduate school.
Davey, a British student of AU, introduced British culture on the spot. He hopes that outstanding high school students who participate in the winter camp can obtain a dual degree through a well-known university that cooperates with the College of Management at AU.
