University College Dublin opens China Centre
University College Dublin launched a China Global Centre in Beijing, adding a fourth centre to its existing Global Network in New York, Kuala Lumpur, and Delhi. The centre, collocated in the local Enterprise Ireland office,will employ two permanent staff and allow students to call a local number for information about UCD without having to wait for the eight-hour time lag. It will also provide help for students studying in collaborative programmes. “So I think initially it will provide a mechanism to much more easily facilitate the interactions that we’ve already established but that we want to grow a little bit more,” said Jeremy Simpson, vice principal of international for the UCD College of Science.
