China Institute

China has been identified as one of Birmingham's four strategic markets, with the aim of developing joint research, promoting education and engagement. To this end the University has established a centre in Guangzhou to host our activities in China, and the China Institute at the University of Birmingham to gather together our wide-ranging research activities with Chinese partners and concerning China more generally.

We are also keen to establish fruitful and mutually beneficial cooperation with China across the whole range of the University's academic subjects.

We are proud of the breadth and diversity of our engagement with China, which varies from joint research centres , through a range of collaborative teaching programmes , to individual academics working with Chinese colleagues.
