Yichun XU received a Master’s Degree in International Communication from Beijing Foreign Studies University in 2017 and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business English from Hainan University, China in 2014. After graduating, she has worked in the International Labour Organization Country Office (ILO) for China and Mongolia. Engaging herself in two important projects of the ILO, the EU-China migration project and Collective Bargaining Project, she liaised with the tripartite constituents in China both at central and local levels. This work experience aroused her interest in better articulation of China’s policies in the hope of more effective communication. In this regard, she aims to pursue more solid grounding of theory, practical tools and problem-solving ability through the MPP course at Cambridge.
