Visiting Fellowship and Teaching Opportunities

The People's Government of China first introduced the 'Double First C lass University Plan' in 2015. The plan which was implemented in 2017, aims to make China establish numerous world-class universities and disciplines by 2050. We at CUDC actively support the government in achieving this ambition and aim to provide a platform for scholars and researchers from China and the UK to visit each other's country to establish collaborations.

Academics and researchers of partner British university can enjoy fully funded visits to Chinese education institutions and universities to gain insight on their research and work for further collaboration opportunities. We work with Chinese universities to provide various opportunities for international researchers.

In this model of partnership, we promote two programmes:

  • Fully funded programme for academics and researchers from partner universities in China to take part in long term training/projects at our partner university in the UK.

  • Fully funded programme for academics and researchers from partner universities in the UK to visit our partner universities in China to explore collaboration opportunities.

China UK Development Centre have recently funded and organised a trip for Professor Nicola Clayton from the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge to visit several of our partner universities in Beijing, Shenyang, Nanjing and Suzhou.
