Peking University and Tsinghua University Dinner Event

PKUAA@Edinburgh has successfully held a dinner event with alumni from Tsinghua University on the 30th of May. This was the first time that alumni from both Peking University and Tsinghua University gathered together at Edinburgh. We shared our interesting experience of living and studying in Edinburgh as well as chatted about the long-standing relationship between these top two Chinese universities. Everyone attended the event so much enjoyed it, and we happily decided to take turns for organising future gathering events for alumni from both universities. We are expecting a barbeque soon in June if the Scottish weather don’t let us down then!
