Warwick in China


Our collaborations with Chinese academic institutions span both research and education. They range from joint undergraduate research projects and collaborative PhD schemes, through to externally-funded UK-China research consortia - and involve a broad range of academic disciplines.

Our researchers work with China’s top universities including Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), Chongqing University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Together, these researchers are publishing their discoveries in top international research publications and training the next generation of world-leading researchers.

If you would like to find out more about our opportunities to collaborate with Chinese universities contact one of our China partnership managers.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) enjoys a long history and a world-renowned reputation. Through some 120 years of unremitting efforts, SJTU has become a comprehensive, research-oriented, and internationalised top university in China.

UK China Universities Consortium on Engineering Education and ResearchLink opens in a new window

The project aims to promote and facilitate strategic engagement and bilateral cooperation in transnational joint programmes on postgraduate higher education and engineering research between the UK Partners and the China Partners. Initially, but not limited to, the focus areas will be energy and intelligent manufacturing in support of both countries’ manufacturing ambitions.

SUSTech

In Aug 2016 an agreement was signed between Warwick and SUSTech to establish a Collaborative PhD mobility programme. The agreement enables specially selected students from SUSTech to enrol on Doctoral Programmes at Warwick, eventually receiving a Warwick PhD. Students benefit from co-supervision from a SUSTech supervisor throughout the programme and carry out their research at both universities, supporting collaboration and co-publications between academics at Warwick and SUSTech.

Fudan University

In April 2017 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Warwick and Fudan University recognising the value of the mutual development of our common strengths and complementary portfolios. Both institutions are committed to designing and developing new research projects, exchanging academic information and staff and student exchange.


Our Impact in China

Warwick is one of the world's leading international universities, thanks in part to the contribution of our staff and students from China. We value the innovation and drive our academic collaborations with Chinese Institutions bring to research and education.
