Dr. Koh Sin Yee (School of Arts and Social Sciences, Monash University Malaysia) is seeking interview participants for her current research project on Xiamen University Malaysia as a case study of a Chinese international branch campus in ASEAN. This project aims to understand: (1) the objectives, processes and challenges of setting up such a branch campus; (2) the connections and interactions between the ‘home’ and ‘branch’ campuses; and (3) the perspectives, experiences and future plans of staff and students. This project has been approved by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee.
Dr. Koh is seeking to recruit three groups of interview participants for this project.
- Faculty members and university administrators/managers who are based at Xiamen University (XMU). This includes staff who travel regularly between the two campuses, or staff who have taught/worked at XMUM for a short period of time (e.g. on secondment, on temporary visit or exchange).
- Faculty members and university administrators/managers who are based at Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM). This includes local and international staff who were recruited directly to XMUM or seconded from XMU.
- Students at Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM). This includes local and international students enrolled in Foundation or Degree programmes.
Please contact Dr. Koh at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. Any suggestions, contacts and leads would be most welcome!
