Welcome students, prospective students, and alumni from China,
China is one of Maastricht University’s main focus countries in Asia. The University has ambitious plans for both student recruitment and long-term collaboration with Chinese universities, businesses and industry. We want to build an extensive, top-quality network of education, innovation, and collaboration.
My name is Shun Yao. I come from China and I am 22 years old now. I am the student assistant in China Country Team for 2014-2015. I am the Second year student of School of Business and Economics learning International Economics Studies. So far, I really enjoyed the student life in Maastricht.
I did my high school in Singapore. The reason why I choose Maastricht University is that I am adapted to PBL system and I love the international environment here. Of course, in order to get into the Dutch city and culture, I was trying my best to learn Dutch, now I have already get B1 level in school language center. I involved lots of school activities in my first year. I am the active member of Scope|Economics, Enactus and Student Society Initiatives. To some extent, I am quite familiar with student events set-up and promotion. I hope that I can make a good use of these experiences in my student assistant’s job.
Particularly worth mentioning is that I participated the International Student Ambassador Programme this year as a buddy, which I got really good training about mentoring and leadership. These are quite good experiences for communicating with new coming international students.
What I expected to get from the student assistant job is the precious working experience. To be honest, this is the first the job I get after I came in Netherlands. Well, I am so glad that I can work in the school promotion field. I wish that my effort would contribute to the China Country Team as well as my team supervisor.
