RIEM established its Overseas Study and Exchange Center (OSEC) in 2007. OSEC aims to promote and facilitate RIEM’s overseas academic study and exchange programs. So far, OSEC has successfully built exchange relationships with Texas A&M University, Miami University, the University of Birmingham, the University of Portsmouth, the Singapore Management University, the University of Guelph, and the Unversity of Western Australia. After students successfully complete their core coursework at RIEM, they will be able to continue their postgraduate studies at one of RIEM’s partner universities.
RIEM also has collaborative “2+2” undergraduate programs with the University of Birmingham in the U.K. Students study in China for the first two years followed by two years of study in the U.K. Credits can be transferred between universities and after successfully completing all necessary credits students will be awarded bachelor’s degrees from both universities.
