CIEET, approved by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China, is an annual event aiming to provide Chinese students with the most authoritative, latest, and comprehensive information for studying abroad, and set up a platform to provide promoting and branding service for overseas institutions. Meanwhile, CIEET also play an important role in introducing highly qualified overseas education resources, and promoting cooperation and exchanges between universities and students. More than 300 universities and organizations from about 30 countries were attracted to this year’s tour.
2016 is the 30th year of UCLan in partnership with China. We prepared 30 red roses every day, a symbol of Lancashire, and gave out to visitors as a gift. UCLan now has various levels of partnerships in China. Subject areas such as Hospitality and Tourism, Art, Design and Fashion, Journalism and Media are very well known in China.
