Confucius Institute settles into Abden House

Three months after opening interim offices within the University of Edinburgh central campus, the Confucius Institute for Scotland today moved to its permanent headquarters, Abden House.

The refurbishment work co-ordinated by the Estates and Buildings department within the University of Edinburgh, was part sponsored by the Scottish Executive. The work carried out to the upper floors has created a superb contemporary teaching and learning environment.

Timetabled classes at Abden House will start in October 2007 prior to which there will be a number of `taster` events to introduce the Institute and its activities to businesses and the interested public.
