PNU opens admission on July 23rd for the Diploma in Business Chinese Language Programme
Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University, represented by the Deanship of Community Service and Continuing Education, intends to open the admission for the “Diploma in Business Chinese Language" Programme in 23rd of July through PNU's official website. This programme is in partnership with the Beijing University of Languages and Culture in order to enhance educational exchange between the two universities and to implement an educational cooperative project for Princess Nourah University students as well as building a good relationship between Saudi Arabia and the Republic of China.
The Chinese Business Language Program is taught by an elite of faculty members at Beijing University. The programme will be two years (80 credit hours) including training, in which the student will have their certificate from both: Beijing University of Languages and Culture and Princess Nourah University. The program admission requires at least a general secondary school certification and paying the fees.
The program targets female students who desire to study Chinese language and designing educational plans for companies that are seeking to develop their employees professionally, increase their efficiency and qualify them to speak the Chinese language.
The program plan is based on offering the Beijing University a set of language skills that help in gaining the fundamentals of the Chinese language in business and provide students with a knowledge that should make them communicate verbally and in writing, thus qualifying them in the future to work in areas where the Chinese language is used.
This approach from the university is consistent with the future vision of Saudi Arabia to enhance the cooperation between the two countries at all levels and in response to the directives of the Crown Prince, HH Prince Muhammad Bin Salman after his visit to Beijing last year 2019, during which he directed to include the Chinese language in education in order to create more investment partnerships, open new horizons for creativity, expand the circle of cultural diversity and benefit from the experience and knowledge of other civilizations.
Princess Nourah University's decision to include the Chinese language diploma reflects the pursuit and efforts made between the relevant authorities in the university towards linking the programs to comply with the requirements of the labor market, which the university places among its top priorities to contribute to enable Saudi women to obtain promising job opportunities and raising the level of their participation as well.
