Reference text
This module is a project that students in the China focus carry out during the term that they spend at a partner university in China. The project topic is selected and researched under intensive online-supervision from Oldenburg in collaboration with colleagues at the partner universities. A kick-off meeting in Oldenburg and regular (online) consultations during and after the stay in China are required. A report in the shape of a 20+ pages study concludes the project.
