SCUT is looking forward to strengthening ties with the University of Bristol, after a delegation of Bristol visited SCUT last week and discussed multiple cooperative programs.
 
The delegation included heads of Bristol’s Faculties of Science, Engineering, Biomedical Sciences, and Social Sciences and Law. They were received by Professor Qiu Xueqing, SCUT’s Vice President, at the Shaw Building of Humanities.
 
During the meeting, Qiu Xueqing introduced SCUT’s growth in recent years, in particular with regard to the growing needs of developing internationalization in SCUT.
 
He indicated that SCUT values the University of Bristol, which has an excellent tradition of education that is worth borrowing from, as a vital partner in SCUT’s strategy. He expected the two universities to take the joint program of Bachelor’s-Master’s-PhD degrees as a solid start, and then extend the partnership to a larger scale to promote scientific research.
 
Professor Tim Gallagher, Dean of Bristol’s Faculty of Science, highly praised SCUT’s achievements in managing higher education and its progress of internationalization. He expected to see programs under discussion to be carried out as soon as possible, which would bring more diversities to exchanges between the two universities.
 
The delegation, in the afternoon of the day, also discussed details of student training programs with SCUT’s Schools of Chemistry of Chemical Engineering, Biology and Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering and Transportation, Electronic and Information Engineering, and Architecture.
 
Founded in 1876, the University of Bristol is a red brick university and a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive British universities. It was ranked 44th by the QS World University Rankings 2017/18, and has been associated with 13 Nobel laureates throughout its history.
