FITM City U Holds Orientation Series for International Exchange Students

At the beginning of the 2015/2016 academic year, FITM of City University of Macau welcomed a new group of exchange students from France, Morocco, Zambia, and Taiwan. Teachers and students of FITM organized a series of orientation activities to help the exchange students adapting to the new living and learning environment.
