In order to solve the puzzle of students’ career planning in their study life, guide students to figure out their personal life path, and consciously set up a correct outlook on employment, the Department of Linguistics organized a series of career planning activities in the new semester.

On March 13th, the first activity of the career planning series – lectures on study abroad   were held via the Tencent Conference online platform. This event invited  Master and Phd students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary and the University of Warwick in the UK. Based on their personal experience, they answered various questions that one may encounter in the process of preparing to study abroad.
