The credit course is for students of Department of International Relations and Development of School of Social Sciences from the second year to the fourth year. Until now, seven students have passed the HSK (Level 3) Exam and two of them have won scholarships and studied in China in 2014. Two students have been to China for attending and observing the Chinese Bridge for ten (10) daysin 2014 and 2016 respectively.

Besides the credit courses, a Chinese interest class is opened to all the staff and students.

The students were also invited to perform the program at the 5FM Radio Launch Ceremony for MRS.

The students were invited again to celebrate Kenneth David Kaunda’s 93 year-old birthday in May, who was the first president of the Republic of Zambia, but was canceled due to a soldier’s death unfortunately.
