The first Chinese student was admitted into the College in 1887, a year after its establishment.

We are among the most popular institutions in the UK for Chinese students and they study here on a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across the Arts, the Sciences and the Humanities.

We have also developed strong links with various organisations and institutions in China, including Renmin University and the British Council China..

The Regional Manager responsible for China is Nathan Whittaker and he visits China 2 to 3 times a year to meet prospective students. Please do not hesitate to contact him at if you would like to have any further information or require assistance in making an application.
