On June 2, 2017, an educational delegation consisting of 5 educational institutions in Malaysia led by GB ACADEMY of Malaysia paid a visit to BFA. Li Ran – Dean of the International School of BFA received them, in the company of Xue Liping – a teacher of the International Student Office and Liu Beibei – a teacher of the Chinese Teaching and Research Office.
The visiting institutions of Malaysia are mainly Chinese-language secondary schools, whose students are basically Chinese Malaysians with a relatively good foundation of Chinese. They pay attention to the cultivation of such art subjects as fine arts and music, and their students have a certain professional competence. These schools raised the following questions: firstly, since the students of these Chinese-language schools have a good foundation of Chinese, can the submission of Chinese Proficiency Test results of the international students in the undergraduate entrance examination be cancelled? Secondly, considering that many Malaysian students are willing to enter themselves for an examination of BFA, can BFA directly select some teachers to hold the entrance examination in Malaysia? Thirdly, in the aspect of undergraduate entrance examination, can BFA provide more convenience for the Malaysian students?
Li Ran - Dean of the International School of BFA, in combination with the current background of “the Belt and Road” cooperation and the need of BFA’s internationalization strategy, negotiated with these Malaysian schools about the above questions, and they reached a consensus on encouraging the Malaysian students to enter BFA for further study.
Afterwards, the educational delegation of Malaysia visited the History Museum and Performing Arts School of BFA.
