In analyzing the international context that highlights the Chinese role in its economic and political projects, I believe that this course comes at the most opportune moment possible. Through a teaching staff from renowned European institutions highly specialized in Chinese studies, the seminars analyze in detail the economic, political and cultural relations between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries, allowing an understanding of the existing strategies in a spirit of cooperation. As well as helping to better understand Chinese culture, the Mandarim language course is a valuable asset in the Portuguese labor market. As a result, I received various proposals to analyze the Chinese market through the LinkedIn platform. The networking that the course offers allowed me to obtain a Study Scholarship to attend a Venice International University Summer School entitled "Uncovering Pathways of Change along the Belt and Road". Furthermore, having completed the course, students receive countless opportunities to take part in internships in the Lusophone countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and Latin America. As a Brazilian, whose country has deep relations with China, I highly recommend this course given its uniqueness at the international level.Ao analisar o contexto internacional que evidencia a atuação chinesa em seus projetos econômicos e políticos, acredito que este curso surge no momento mais oportuno possível. Através de um corpo docente altamente especializado em estudos chineses em renomadas instituições europeias, os seminários abordam analiticamente as relações econômicas, políticas e culturais entre a China e os países lusófonos, permitindo compreender as estratégias existentes numa ótica de cooperação. Além de auxiliar no melhor entendimento da cultura chinesa, o Mandarim presente na estrutura curricular representa um diferencial valorizado no mercado de trabalho português, uma vez que recebi propostas de entrevistas para analisar o mercado chinês através da plataforma LinkedIn. O network que o curso oferece permitiu-me receber uma Bolsa de Estudos para participar na Escola de Verão "Uncovering Pathways of Change along the Belt and Road" na Venice International University. Além disso, semanalmente recebemos inúmeras oportunidades para estágios em países lusófonos, ampliando o raio de atuação dos alunos formados no curso, sendo que os países lusófonos estão presentes na África, Europa, Ásia e América Latina. Como brasileira – país cujo possui relações profundas com a China –, recomendo altamente esta formação dado sua singularidade à nível internacional.

My learning experience on the China-PLP course enabled me to start teaching at a university in Beijing. Having a good command of both languages ​​(Portuguese and Mandarin) and fully understanding the cultural differences were great advantages and they enabled me to be successfully competitive in the job selection process.A experiência de aprendizagem no curso China-PLP possibilitou-me começar a ensinar numa universidade em Pequim. Ter bom domínio de ambos idiomas (português e mandarim) e conhecer bem as divergências culturais são as minhas maiores vantagens e permitiram-me ser competitivo no concurso ao emprego.

The course constitutes a great opportunity for those wishing to deepen their knowledge of China and Asia, as well as Sino-Portuguese relations. With a multicultural atmosphere and highly competent teachers, the course provides theoretical and practical knowledge enabling its students to fully understand the international relations involved and the future labor market. As a result of taking part in this course, I was able to participate in the International Fair of Macao (MIF), where I explored the opportunities and challenges inherent to multilateralism and internationalization. Moreover, the course enabled me to get closer to the institutions responsible for the Sino-Portuguese relations.O curso de formação avançada constituiu uma ótima oportunidade para aqueles que pretendam firmar seus conhecimentos sobre a China e em geral Ásia, bem como para quem pretenda embarcar na preponderância das relações sino-portuguesas. Devoto de um ambiente multicultural, alicerçado por um competente corpo de docentes, o curso mune de saberes teórico-práticos capacitando os seus discentes a interagirem de forma crítica para com a realidade internacional e futuro mercado de trabalho. Desde que tomei a iniciativa de ingressar no curso, não só me foi possibilitado participar na Feira Internacional de Macau (MIF), onde durante uma semana pude perspetivar as diferenças e desafios inerentes ao multilateralismo e internacionalização, como também, aproximar-me do tecido e instituições responsáveis pela formalidade das relações nas suas diversas áreas.
