Nottingham Confucius Institute
Confucius Institutes are established throughout the world to promote teaching of the Chinese language and Chinese culture in the world. The Nottingham Confucius Institute was officially launched on September 27, 2007 which sealed the Confucius Institute agreement between The University of Nottingham and the Office of Chinese Language Council International.
The University of Nottingham opened its School of Contemporary Chinese Studies (SCCS) in 2007 - the first school of its kind in the UK to focus solely on the study of contemporary China. The Confucius Institute builds on the successful development of contemporary Chinese studies at the University and is based within the SCCS.
The Nottingham Confucius Institute offers courses and engages in various events by drawing upon the expertise and resources of The University of Nottingham and its partner institution Fudan University in Shanghai. The Institute further strengthens the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies and offers the ideal opportunity to promote Chinese language and culture both locally and nationally.
