ClassIn connected Chinese students and schools from across the globe.
Due to the pandemic, the 10th Peking University Study Abroad Fair was replaced by an online event. Students and the school representatives from all around the world could connect through ClassIn live streaming feature. This year, Peking University (PKU) invited its international sister universities, including Standford University, Chicago University, Yale University, Oxford University, University of Munich, Embassy of France in China, Embassy of Japan in China, Hanyang University, etc. The schools had live sessions through ClassIn to present the school and study programs overseas.
