Finnish university building bridges with Chinese students


Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland, attracts students from all over the world, including China.

As part of its policy of globalisation, it teaches courses in English and has set up links with partner universities, including offering a double degree with Tongji University in China.

This international policy is intended to help the university to attract high-quality staff and students and to take advantage of global markets.

BBC News spoke to Chinese students at Aalto and the university's director of international affairs to find out how the scheme was working.
