Lancaster University Confucius Institute
Lancaster University Confucius Institute officially opened on 20 December 2011.
Its aims include to:
- offer credit-bearing Mandarin language and culture classes to students;
- offer language and culture courses to local schools, communities and businesses;
- support enterprise in the North West region through the themes of China, innovation and sustainable development. Both Lancaster University and our partner University in China, South China University of Technology, have significant expertise in these areas.
