Nikolay Kropachev, rector of St. Petersburg University (SPbU), has said that China-Russia cooperation in education sees broad prospects.
He says SPbU, with rich resources, offers educational programs on Chinese studies, noting that training specialists in this field will help enhance China-Russia relations in many aspects.
On Sept. 16, 2019, St. Petersburg University and Harbin Institute of Technology signed an agreement on the creation of a joint campus in Harbin.
Combining the resources of the two universities, undergraduate cooperative programs including chemistry, applied physics, and mathematics were set up.
Kropachev was very much encouraged by the cooperation. He expects the academic ties between the two countries will grow closer in the future.
