In October 2019, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Rufus Black visited China.
Accompanied by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Global (Acting), Mr Rob Wilson and Executive Director, Corporate Affairs, Mr Jason Purdie, they visited five of our partner universities in China, namely:
- Southwest University in Chongqing
- Shanghai Ocean University in Shanghai
- Shandong University in Weihai
- Xi’an University of Science and Technology (XUST) and Xi’an Conservatory of Music (XACM) in Xi’an
Of particular interest during this visit was the need to broaden and deepen research collaborations at an institutional level, built around shared interests with our partners.
