The Confucius Institute at the Ulster University (CIUU) was established in 2011 to develop academic, cultural, economic and social ties between Northern Ireland and China.

Since then it has set up a network of Confucius Classrooms in schools across Northern Ireland teaching Mandarin Chinese and culture. The connection between Ulster and Chinese universities has deepened cooperation in the exchange of teachers and students, establishing research and development platforms, and sharing teaching ideas and other resources.

Such cooperation continues to promote innovation in talent cultivation, scientific research, business connections and cultural heritage.

All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site
