Shangdong University of Technology Visit

23 November 2017

A group of eleven students and two teaching staff from Shangdong University of Technology (SDUT) visited the University of Waikato last week for an intensive course in Common Law. The group stayed on campus in the College Hall student accommodation block and attended classes in the University’s mooting court, embracing the University’s unique culture and facilities.

"The mooting court is very different to the one we have in China so it's been great to experience a completely different learning environment,” says SDUT student Wenqing Wu. “The Waikato lecturers have been amazing; they are very patient with our English language skills and willing to slow down to help us understand."

Visiting New Zealand for the first time, the students were impressed with the New Zealand scenery and climate.

"New Zealand is very beautiful and the warm weather is so nice," says Wenxuan Zhou."I would love to come back one day!"

The students will spend this week continuing their daily classes, including a visit to the Hamilton District Court and an observational visit to a Hamilton law firm. The students will be attending a Farewell Dinner on Friday night before heading back to China on Sunday.
