Fuzhou University visits UWTSD in 10th anniversary year


The University of Wales Trinity Saint David has welcomed Fuzhou University’s Director of the Office of International Cooperation and Exchange on his visit from China.

Fuzhou University visit

Fuzhou University is a top 100 university in China and is well-respected with an excellent international reputation. Fuzhou University has had close links with universities in Wales since 2010 and it is in this 10th anniversary year that it is developing a partnership with UWTSD.

Professor Simon Haslett, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International and Enhancement) at UWTSD, led the welcoming party to greet Director Alan Qizhou Lu from Fuzhou University, together with other senior UWTSD colleagues in Swansea. The visit comprised several meetings and tours of the Swansea Business School and the SA1 Swansea Waterfront development in the marina.

“I am delighted to welcome Director Alan Lu to UWTSD, Wales and Swansea as our two institutions work together to explore the potential of developing a new international partnership that would help to strengthen this important link between the UK and China” said Professor Haslett, who leads on UWTSD’s international strategy.

“One aspect of the potential partnership is to encourage and facilitate UWTSD students travelling to Fuzhou to spend time studying at the University in China and vice versa. Fuzhou is situated in a scenic coastal basin backed by a chain of mountains that provide a stunning backdrop to the city, so has some similarities with Swansea’s beautiful coastal setting, and a fantastic learning environment for students.”
