I was fortunate enough to receive the Joint-Governmental Scholarship from China and Ireland and to find the unique course in Landscape Archaeology at NUI Galway. The excellent standard of education in the MA Landscape Archaeology provides advanced archaeological theoretical research methodology and academic practice.
The professional and competent approach to teaching directs me in my understanding of the archaeology and anthropology of both western and eastern cultures. The development of deep understanding of Landscape Archaeology will promote cultural acceptance among divergent ethnic populations in China, and point to ways in which we can protect our shared cultural heritage in its landscape setting.
NUI Galway offers an international and positive atmosphere in a beautiful environment, the staff at all levels fulfil their responsibilities to each student. The city of Galway is such a nice place with a rich historical and cultural atmosphere. The study and life here will provide the chances to discover the splendours of the natural landscape, and to experience the authentic Irish culture.
