PhD Workshop China Dutch Virtual Event

This event has expired. Please have a look at our future events.

Due to Covid-19 all live international recruitment events are cancelled in 2020. Fairlink and AcademicTransfer joined forces and decided to organise the PhD Workshop China Dutch Virtual Event! A virtual fair to recruit Chinese PhD candidates.

The PhD Workshop is exclusively for Dutch universities. It gives you the opportunity to meet highly talented Chinese masters with, or applying for, a CSC scholarship. The idea is the same: you can review candidates CV’s and research proposals and plan interviews for the fair days. Chinese students will be invited by Fairlink, the organizer of the live event in Beijing or Shanghai, so you have the same reach of potential candidates as normally!
