Confucius Institute for Glasgow

To help meet the growing demand for learning about China and Chinese the University of Glasgow held an opening ceremony to mark the establishment of a Confucius Institute within the University.

Established as a partnership with Nankai University in Tianjin, the CI in Glasgow is headed up by Professor Jane Duckett. For full details of the launch and to read about the CI University of Glasgow plans please visit their website.

A special exhibition of art works by Fan Zeng, one of China’s most famous artists, whose traditional ‘splashed ink’ and figure drawings are hugely popular in China will run in the Kelvin Gallery of the Hunterian Museum for six weeks to mark the opening of the Confucius Institute in the University of Glasgow.
