The Confucius Institute at Ulster University was launched on 13 April 2012.

The Institute’s activity focuses on:

  • the development of the teaching of the Chinese language at all levels of the educational system;
  • the promotion of staff and student exchanges and other forms of academic collaboration between the partner institutions; and
  • outreach activities aimed at familiarising the general public across Northern Ireland with the heritage of Chinese culture.

Confucius Institutes are a worldwide network of institutions established to promote Chinese language and culture internationally.

The Institute also functions as a focal point for China-related activities across Northern Ireland, thus contributing to the forging of business, professional, and cultural connections between China and Northern Ireland.

The website for the Confucius Institute at Ulster University is currently undergoing redevelopment.
