Consultation and joint meeting were held on January 5th, 2020. In this activity, both sides discussed about new cooperation plan. Previously, UM and Guanxi Normal University have been collaborating since 2011, as evidenced by the existence of the Mandarin Language Department, the Mandarin Language Center (PBM), winter camp program, and 3 plus 1 program. The new cooperation that will be executed in 2020 is the exchange of students of the Mathematics and Knowledge Faculty Nature (FMIPA) and the Faculty of Sports Science (FIK).
The visit was continued with a campus visit at 6th-7th January 2020. This activity took two days because Guangxi Normal University is a large and wide campus. During the campus visit activities, UM delegates looked at the existing facilities especially the facilities at the College of Mathematics and Statistics, the College of Chemistry and Pharmacy, the College of Life Science, and the College of Physical Science and Technology. This aims to find out how the services will be delivered by the UM exchange students later.
