1. University-wide Schemes

Well-known academic international experts are frequently invited to HUST for face-to-face communication with students. These are opportunities for them to share with students their personal opinions, research experiences, and academic insights about major international and cutting-edge topics. These events are intended to encourage students to continuously pursue both scientific truth and the beauty of the humanities.
