In recognition of the growing importance of China as an economic powerhouse and in order to further support our partnership work in China, the Staffordshire University China Centre was officially opened on 30th October 2012.
The Staffordshire University China Centre is located on the campus of our partner institution, the Global Institute of Software Technology (GIST) International College, where a number of Staffordshire University business and computing programmes are delivered on a franchise basis.
The GIST campus is within the University Quarter of the ultra-modern Suzhou Industrial Park with excellent shared facilities such as library, sports and other recreational facilities.
With an enhanced presence in China, the Staffordshire University China Centre will:
- Act as a focal point for over 3000 Chinese alumni of Staffordshire University.
- Provide additional support to all of our existing partners in China.
- Research and feedback to Staffordshire University Faculties on changing demand in China for UK HE programmes.
- Explore the market potential for more in-country delivery of Staffordshire University programmes.
