When interviewed, Secretary Xu said, "Sweden and Finland as well as other Northern European countries have long been praised for their emphasis on higher education and the abundant financial support of the government. Higher institutes in Northern European countries emphasize on characteristics and advantages, while students are encouraged to study independently and research jointly."


Northern European institutes also approved of the innovation manifested in the way mental health education and counsel was conducted at GDUFS, and showed great interest in cooperation with GDUFS. They discussed issues of cooperative education, student and faculty exchange and welcomed the idea of GDUFS students taking classes at their colleges, in which case, student's tuition fees will be free.


GDUFS will be engaged in the cooperation and communication with Northern European higher institutes in the near future.
