EXPANSION and a celebration
A decade on from the signing of the agreement to set up the Confucius Institute for Scotland, we will mark our 10th Anniversary on 19 Sept 2016 when we expand from one building into three on our expanded Confucius Campus.
Whether you want to just come along to see the new campus, take part by learning some Tai Chi poses, be introduced to a range of Chinese musical instruments, try your hand at calligraphy – or simply take a selfie with the Panda mascots – you will be most welcome. Our teachers will also be offering some taster Chinese language sessions as well.
Of course no celebration would be complete without food so please come and enjoy some delicious Chinese dumplings which will be on offer throughout the afternoon.
As this is an open invite and a family friendly event, please feel free to bring along family /friends and please do help us to spread the word!
More information on the expansion is below.
Confucius Institute for Scotland Campus
Nos 79 & 81 Dalkeith Road, formerly the location of the University’s day care nursery, has for the last year been undergoing a quiet refurbishment to create additional learning and collaboration spaces for Institute students, visiting staff and various academic and cultural partners.
With six fully provisioned teaching rooms, a post-graduate study room, research library and staff offices the expansion will mean most classes take place in the Dalkeith Road buildings at No 79 (North) and No 81 (South).
Fortunately Institute staff and students can move easily between Abden House and the two refurbished buildings via the garden entrance to numbers 79 + 81 Dalkeith Road which back onto the University car park just outside the main gates of Abden!
