Study Abroad Conference/Seminar
Since its founding in 2009, USIEA has been hosting International Education Seminars and Annual Conferences every year. Both seminars and conferences are great platforms where communications and collaborations between universities from China and overseas take place. Through these events, educators from all different countries can share information, exchange views and work together for international education.

On May 25th, 2018, USIEA hosted the International Talent Seminar in Chongqing, which was the 14th annual seminar that was initiated by USIEA. More than 100 school leaders and teachers from international business offices and academic affairs offices from 54 universities across China have attended and discussed in depth on the theme. Mr. Liang Sibo, marketing director from British Council, which is one the co-creators of IELTS and partner of USIEA, has shared the very first set of English proficiency assessment standards covering all school years in China – ‘China’s Standards of English Language Ability’. In order to better facilitate the internationalization of higher education and promote further progress of the development of English language in higher education, British Council has also initiated the “IELTS Global Recognition” plan, assisting universities with cultivating more globally competitive talents. Furthermore, teachers from the frontlines of international education have also shared their stories and thoughts on internationalization in their universities.
