Closer links have been forged between the University of Aberdeen and Wuhan University in China, following the signing of an inter-institutional agreement in Aberdeen.
The University of Aberdeen welcomed a delegation from Wuhan University to Aberdeen on Friday 8 March to conclude the signing of this latest agreement between the two universities. Both parties have been working closely together since 2006, when the original agreement was signed.
Professor Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, and Professor Zhou Chuangbing, Vice President (International) Wuhan University, signed the agreement to continue the success of the 2+2 programme in Finance, Economics and Management Studies. Following two years of study at Wuhan University, students come to Aberdeen to complete their bachelor degree, leading to the award of a degree from both universities.
The agreement is also designed to promote cultural and educational exchange of staff and students.
Professor Diamond said, “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Wuhan University, as it provides an excellent opportunity for the University of Aberdeen to work closely with one of China’s leading universities”.
