Launch of Confucius Institute

In July 2011, Ulster University was chosen to host a Confucius Institute for Northern Ireland. The then Vice-Chancellor, Professor Richard Barnett, visited China where the agreement was signed with Hanban, the Office of Chinese Language Council International in Beijing.

Confucius Institute at Ulster University (CIUU) operates jointly with its partner in China, Hubei Normal University, a specialist university for teacher training situated in Huangshi City, Hubei Province.
