Event details

Since the Confucius Institute at the University of Southampton opened at Highfield Campus in October 2011, it has become a channel offering local people the opportunity to study Chinese language and culture. In 2017, the Confucius Institute moved to the Faculty of Humanities at Avenue Campus. The forthcoming event ‘the Confucius Institute at Southampton, Past, Present and Future’ on 10 March will offer an opportunity for students, staff and the wider Southampton community to learn more about CI.

The event will include performances aiming to dazzle the audience with unique cross-cultural activities:
