Working together to build communities, respect and promoting diversity are at the core of our university’s values, and at the heart of what we do here in our award-winning Confucius Institute.

About the Institute

Our Confucius Institute is a regional and national leader in bridging China and Great Britain, a centre for immersion in Mandarin language, culture, research, teaching and collaboration.

The Institute opened on 20th December 2011, a partnership between Lancaster University and South China University of Technology in Guangzhou.

Our team of academics, teachers and staff work with students, schools, businesses and local communities, acting as a focal point for China-related activities in Lancaster and the wider North West region.
