UoG signs international partnership with Hainan University in China
The University of Gloucestershire and Hainan University in China have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, launching the start of what is hoped will be a long and successful international collaboration.
Prof Jackie Labbe, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of University of Gloucestershire, said: “I’m delighted to launch this Memorandum of Understanding in what I hope will be a very fruitful collaboration.
“We are a very ambitious university, very interested in finding the right kinds of international partners to join with, and it certainly is the case that Hainan is one of those partners.
“The University is exploring a number of global opportunities and we see this partnership as one which will help us to further establish ourselves in China.
“We are very proud and delighted that Hainan University would like to work with us in the fields of finance and accounting, and branching out after that perhaps into data engineering and computing as well.”
Prof Ye Guangliang, Vice-President of Hainan University, said: “International cooperation is an important component for a globalised university. Hainan University has worked closely with 197 universities from 37 countries and regions.
“Hainan University is the only national key university in Hainan province. Now Hainan University is developing world-class disciplines to solve the contribution of a Hainan Friendship Port – a new benchmark in China’s reform and opening up.
“We are very excited to partner with UoG. With a tradition of more than 170 years education, UoG enjoys a reputation for its academic excellence, world leading research and a strong support to international students.
“I am confident that our collaboration, starting in the field of finance and accounting, will create a synergy to nurture resilient students for the challenges of tomorrow and advance in novelty research and contribute more to our societies. I wish our collaboration a greatest success.”
