Director's welcome

At the beginning of 2017, the University of Southampton Confucius Institute (CI) was warmly welcomed to the Faculty of Humanities. The CI was formally opened in October 2011 in collaboration with our Chinese partner at Xiamen University China.

Director of Confucius Institute
Dr. Ying ZHENG

The aim of the CI is to establish and support the provision of opportunities to study and research all aspects of China, including language and culture, from primary school through to university level. The CI delivers courses in Chinese language and culture for the wider community in and around Southampton and provides a range of services which are be of interest to students, researchers, and local entrepreneurs.

 It is my greatest pleasure to be involved with an Institute whose mission is to promote Chinese language and culture. I welcome you all to join our events, sign up for our language programmes and take a good look through the window that we have opened on Chinese language and culture.
