Bar-Ilan University Deputy President Prof. Yaffa Zilbershats recently returned from a fruitful visit to China, where she visited four of the country's most prestigious academic institutions:
Shanghai Institutes for International Studies (SIIS)
Eastern University of Political Science and Law (ECUPL)
Shanghai International Studies University (ShISU)
Prof. Zilbershats and the leadership of each of these institutions agreed to pursue opportunities for academic cooperation with Bar-Ilan, including special study programs and possibilities for student and faculty exchange programs.
Late last year Bar-Ilan University (BIU) and the Shanghai International Studies University (ShISU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which the two universities expressed their intention to establish an Israel Studies Program at ShISU, Chinese cultural programs in various departments at BIU, academic exchange programs, and additional ties to be further explored.
