ISH student lands role at the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage

30 August 2016


UCL ISH MSc Sustainable Heritage student, Xueshen Zhu, has been appointed a significant position at the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage.  Xueshen was part of the 2014/15 cohort and wrote her dissertation on the historic Chinese city of Pingyao.  Xueshen described her new role and how the MSc Sustainable Heritage programme helped her for us in her own words:

 ‘I am currently working in Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage, dealing with World Heritage List inscription, especially for the analysis of Conservation and factors affecting the Property and heritage monitoring. Generally, I would like to say that it was very useful to learn about heritage conservation work through every module. But I am extremely grateful for the monitoring experience from our modules because there's no related major teaching you how to monitor heritage in China, which really highlights my resume.  Besides, I really appreciate our teaching mode, combining knowledge with practice, providing you a lot of chances to handle projects using what you learnt, which enriches my internship experience as well. Currently in China, the prospect of heritage conservation is getting better and better. Hope you could join conservation work through our MSc degree, just like me.
