I have learnt many things during this summer program, including social skills, Chinese and Japanese culture and business skills, English skills, etc. I learnt how to do business in China and the importance of it after I graduate from UoA. Also, I got to meet with many students from all over the world which is very beneficial for networking. I also improved my English skills during this virtual summer program.
The program was purely online, but we had many different online activities including Japanese culture workshop, online CFA workshops, I got to learn a lot of stuff that I did not know previously. In the class I took, I got to participate in different projects and essays, which allowed me to enhance my writing and presentation skills. I believe that the biggest takeaway from this program is that I thoroughly expanded my network in this program. I added over 50 students from different universities in Australia and I will be meeting them in person after the program ends. I am really excited about this.
The challenge I faced in this program is that sometimes the project and essays are a little bit challenging, but it really did help me enhance my skills comprehensively. I really appreciate the 360 team for offering such an opportunity, it has been really valuable to me, if I have a chance, I would certainly like to participate in it again. I would also recommend it to my friends at UoA. In spite of the fact that we are in a tough time of Covid-19, I still really enjoyed the experience.
The virtual program offers a great new way of learning, while sometimes there might be some lag in the class, but I get to participate in the live class, and if I had any questions, I got to go back to the recording again. One advice that I would give to other students is that don’t worry about the difficulties in online learning, Soochow has done a great job with this and also you will get to meet other students.
