NZSATCM has several Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with traditional Chinese medicine universities in China. These memoranda form the basis of present, ongoing, and future cooperation between NZSATCM and these institutions which independently rank among the best traditional Chinese medical universities in China.
Through this cooperation, we send our students and graduates to China to pursue their interests via student exchange programmes and vice versa.
