A partnership between Jinan University and the University of Birmingham in the UK provides the opportunity for students to study in China and receive a dual degree from Jinan University and the University of Birmingham.
Degrees are offered in Economics, Information and Computing Science, Pure Mathematics, and Statistics, each with a strong core of Applied Mathematics. Students will be based on the Jinan University campus, with University of Birmingham staff from the School of Mathematics delivering the teaching on site.
The Jinan-Birmingham Joint Institute was officially opened in November 2016 in a ceremony at Jinan University, Guangzhou.
The University of Birmingham and Jinan University have a strong and well established partnership, and have been working together on delivering programmes in the School of Mathematics since 2011, as part of a wider multi-disciplinary relationship.
Jinan University, established in 1906, is one of China’s elite group of the “211 Project” Universities. It has a focus on international orientation and has over 50,000 students.
