During such a short period Dr.Feng managed to study the Guidelines, Standards and Criteria for external reviews of study programmes of the NCPA, to participate as an observer in the external review panels at two universities: Volga State University of Technology (Yoshkar-Ola) and University of Management “TISBI” (Kazan). Dr. Feng appreciated the NCPA’s accreditation procedure and stressed that the standards and criteria would be translated into Chinese and further would be partially used during institutional accreditation by SEEI.

Both universities gave a brief description of their unique histories, educational structures, forms of management and research.
