• When I was searching for where to enroll in a junior diploma programme, I considered many distance education institutes, finally deciding to go to RTVU because of its advantages in educational resources. Compared with the online courses from other institutes, RTVU not only provides online content but also arranges face-to-face group instruction. This makes it superior to ordinary distance learning institutes in terms of learning atmosphere, effects, faculty resources, Q&A assistance, communication and timely feedback, etc. Moreover, RTVU students have access to the distance teaching platform offered by the OUC, Zhejiang RTVU and Lishui RTVU, which greatly relieves the conflict between work and study for those on-the-job students.

  • Unified junior college textbooks are adopted within the RTVU system. The RTVU invited famous teachers to give lectures and provides online tutoring to enable students to have access to instruction from first-class faculties through distance educational means.

  • I am from the countryside. Because my father was ill and my younger brother and sister had to go to school, I shouldered the burden of familial responsibility and went to find a job instead of continuing my studies after graduating from high school. In the blink of an eye, more than ten years had passed. In fall 2012, an opportunity arose for me to go to university. The Pan’an branch of Zhejiang Radio and Television University (ZhejiangVU) started to recruit students from rural areas with no age limit. Even better, the government offered subsidies for learners. I went to register at the RTVU immediately. The thought of being able to study again thrilled me.

  • The RTVU has given me an opportunity to access higher education and to achieve a dream I've had for many years. It has given me a chance to enrich myself. Survival in today’s world is cruel. One will possibly get eliminated if he/she doesn’t take in new knowledge. In short, it was the right choice to study in an RTVU and I have enjoyed it!

  • During the days and nights I spent studying at Panan RTVU, I was deeply moved by the selfless dedication and meticulous care extended by the leaders and tutors of Panan RTVU and greatly touched by their scrupulous working attitude and rigorous teaching spirit. Often, while others would be out fishing, sightseeing, or enjoying relaxation, they kept focused on their goal of giving RTVU students the highest quality service. Sometimes, even if there was only one student in a spacious classroom, the tutors were still teaching earnestly.

  • I was still at a loss for the future when I left the army two years ago. Even when I later became an auxiliary policeman, I was still not clear about my life goals. However, since entering my studies at Guangxi RTVU, my insight and abilities have improved. Although there are a great number of people who have received university education, my purpose in going to RTVU is not merely to get a graduation certificate, but to gain knowledge, expand my horizon, and improve my abilities. My improvement over the past year is perceptible, which fills me with confidence. Who would imagine that I am now so confident in my future?

  • Thanks to open education at the RTVU, the door to knowledge was reopened to me. There is a wise saying that, “to be a man who seeks knowledge, authenticates and explores the world around him, enriches one’s inner world, and brings unique and insightful viewpoints. Your heart will feel joyful. Your life will be happy and more meaningful.” During the time I studied at the RTVU, I met students from various industries, as well as wise teachers with a wide range of knowledge. Being with them improved my way of thinking and helped me grow day by day. The Open University has given me a second life and a good opportunity to reexamine and reposition myself. I appreciate this stage and the positive power brought to my life which compels me to move forward through difficulties and continue along the right track. I now devote myself to work and study with fresh vigor each day, feeling grateful and working hard to realize a courageous and strong life.
