The Opening Ceremony for new coming CSC-UU PhDs was successfully organized by CUSA on 25th November 2015 at Academiegebouw, the heart and the face of the Utrecht University. The Rector Magnificus of Utrecht University, Professor Bert van der Zwaan gave his warmest welcome speech to the total 70 participants. The Rector put his effort to improve CSC-UU PhDs’ situation for a long time and emphasized to continue this work with the help of CUSA. The Chair of CUSA Haoran Yang addressed Chinese Ph.D students the mission of CUSA for the cooperation between China and UU, aiming at building up platform for each of scholars and students between both sides. The secretary of Education department of Chinese Embassy Mr. Yiwei Wang who represents the Chinese Embassy, also attended the ceremony and gave his speech mainly focusing on the policy and regulation for CSC-UU PhDs. The CSC-UU programme coordinator Eveline weenink, programme leader of internationalization of UU Margreet de Lange, PhD-policy advisor Dieuwertj ter Brinke, Internationalisation officers Hellen van der Maazen, and Exchange Coordinator from international office Paula Banning also were present in the ceremony and explained the detailed rules and regulations of UU. Xiao Chang, on behalf of senior CSC-UU PhDs presented her work as an example and also shared her personal experience and feelings to the new coming Ph.D students. During the Q&A section, PhD students came up with numerous sharp questions referring to their identity, right, living condition, Dutch language learning and teaching task, and this lead to a heat discussion with staff members of UU. All these questions were collected and documented by CUSA as a reference for their future work and tasks to improve the situation of CSC-UU PhDs.

The final part was designed as a net-working expanding section for new students. This provided Chinese Ph.D students with a precious chance to face-to-face communicate with not only senior CSC-UU PhDs, but also supervisors from different faculties and stuff members of the University. With the consistent effects from CUSA on the issues relevant to Chinese scholars, Chinese scholars will get more attention and support from the University, extending the cooperative network between China and UU.
