”Countdown to Sweden” in Beijing and Shanghai

“Countdown to Sweden”, Beijing

On 28 April (Beijing) and 30 April (Shanghai) Chinese students accepted to Swedish Universities got the chance to meet with Chinese alumni at “pre-departure events” organised by the Embassy of Sweden in Beijing and the Swedish Consulate General in Shanghai together with the Swedish Institute.

The events not only provided an opportunity for prospective students to speak to alumni and Swedish university representatives, but also a chance for Chinese alumni to meet with new and old alumni friends. 

Welcoming words by the Ambassador of Sweden in China, Lars Fredén, among the skyscrapers of Beijing, 28 April.


Happy participants! Beijing, 28 April

No Swedish event is complete without a “fika”!

China is home to the biggest Swedish alumni network in the world: Sweden Alumni Network in China (SANC), with more than 1000 members. SANC organises events for its members and is also a great resource for the Embassy and Consulate in promoting Sweden as study destination in China.
