On June 21st,Vice President of the university Wu Jinzhao had second talk meeting with students of the College in Room 411 in International Education Complex Building, listening to problems raised by students, making feedbacks and proposing solutions to solve the problems. Students from four levels, the Associate Dean of the College Yu Lin, student counselor Fang Jiaojiao, Sun Yucui, Academic Assistant Huanghe Shiqing attended the meeting.
Vice President WuJinzhao said that the programme GXUN-Staffordshire University Sino-British Collaborative Education in Accounting with Bachelor of Arts (Hons) was the first programme which was permitted to be held by Ministry of Education in Guangxi. It was to meet the need of the development of national university education, and its foundation complemented each other with advantages of university education between China and UK. Meanwhile, Sino-foreign collaborative education was a new thing, there would have some problems in the course of its development. He hoped that students can speak out freely, posing problems and giving some suggestion.
Students raised problems about academic study, subject setting, teaching management,graduation, employment and overseas studying, etc. and gave their opinions on how to solve the problems. First, courses on English side were overemphasized while courses on Chinese side were neglected. There were no courses on Chinese side when there were courses on English side, and course hours on Chinese side were cut down, which was not helpful for students to learn. Second, academic knowledge was not systematic and profound enough, students expected course structure can be adjusted to improve students’academic quality, at the same time, open more practice training courses about Accounting which can improve students’ academic practical skills. Third,course schedule on English side affected students’ employment and overseas studying. Students hoped course schedule on English side can be adjusted so that they can have more time to seek jobs or make preparation for overseas studying. Fourth, students hoped that management on English side can be more communicative,human, and harmonious, as well as bringing more managers on English side. Fifth,students hoped that they can be able to take some activities through which theycan enrich their own experience of life and improve their personal skills. On the condition that students’ academic study would not be affected, they hoped manager on English side can permit them to do that. Last, students wondered if what they wanted to ask foreign teachers was only some small questions, can they get it done immediately during class break, not to make extra appointments to the teachers.
Vice President Wu thanked for what students said, he thought that the problems raised by them were very important, practical and pertinent. If these problems were solved, it would make big acceleration for the development of the College as well as students themselves. Vice President Wu promised that the College and the university would make survey and investigation, held teaching revolution meeting, clarify problems, communicate more with SU, and seek solutions to solve the problems. At the end, Wu put forward some suggestions for students. First,take more communication with student counselors and academic teachers,consulting what they feel confused in academic study until they got it. Second,read carefully Student Course Handbook on English side, get to know regulations in it. Third, there were good things of regulations on English side, try to understand and observe.
