The University of Birmingham Guangzhou Centre in is a unique facility established in coordination with the Guangzhou municipality to facilitate joint research and education initiatives in Guangzhou and the wider region.
The University of Birmingham has a long association with China in education and research that dates back to the early 20th century. Our relationship has produced some notable achievements: the famous geologist Li Siguang studied at the University of Birmingham and in joint publications with China, the University is the 3rd largest in the UK.
We also have an important academic engagement in Guangzhou with the Guangzhou Biobank cohort study and there is an ongoing programme of municipal training with Guangzhou civil servants.
The University of Birmingham Guangzhou Centre provides a strong platform from which to build upon the work already underway and to build new initiatives with our partners in Guangzhou.
The Centre is located right in the heart of the business district just a minute away from the metro in newly refurbished offices housing seminar and meeting rooms, communications and support facilities. The centre is staffed by an enthusiastic team who will manage and facilitate the expansion of our activities in Guangzhou.
