A group of master students studying Chinese was given a task to develop a topical research project in the field of higher education that would be useful for their professional development. The students choice of the project area was internationalization, namely students academic mobility. The interest was determined by increasing mutual interest of Russia and China in interaction in economic, political and cultural fields.

The participants studied the educational system of China and selected thirty universities which they wanted to build relationships with.
