Based in Cambridge, the aim of the centre is to promote educational and cultural exchanges between China and the UK. To achieve this it works closely with universities, educational institutions, local governments and academics.
There are two main themes to the provision, which are Natural Sciences and Engineering and Social Sciences and Humanities. Both programmes provide workshops and language courses to develop the students’ professional skills. Some examples of the content from the Social Sciences and Humanities programme include international perspective of social protest and modern democracy, how to write a piece of music and political economics. Example content from the Natural Sciences and Engineering programme include how does a jet engine work, environmental and biological flows and synthetic biology: when life science meets engineering.
