Eight Southampton students had the opportunity over Easter to spend a week in the historic port city of Xiamen, China, as guests of Xiamen University.

The university was hosting a “University of Southampton Day” on 26 March, involving a team of senior researchers led by VC Prof Don Nutbeam. The students were invited by university President Zhu to undertake a study visit alongside the Southampton event, under the auspices of the Confucius Institute. The students selected had all been studying Chinese language with the Institute in Southampton. Three were Modern Languages students, and the others came from History, Physics and Engineering. During the week, they mixed with Chinese student hosts and took part in a range of cultural activities including a visit to historic Gulangyu Islet, taichi and calligraphy.
