In line with local and national education development policy Henan University of Urban Construction (HUUC) is actively pursuing the formation of academic partnerships with universities overseas.
As part of its internationalization agenda, HUUC employs a number of teaching staff from other countries and has formed joint-degree partnerships with institutions in other countries. HUUC’s international faculty currently consists of a range of full-time and visiting teachers from the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Malaysia. HUUC has also established productive working dialogues with universities in various parts of the world, including: the University of the Highlands and Islands; University of Sunderland; the University of Stuttgart in Germany; the University of Canberra in Australia; and Linton University in Malaysia.
HUUC has recently commenced a collaborative undergraduate program with an overseas partner and also runs a three year program in concert with Linton University. In addition to retaining several international faculty, HUUC also supports staff engaged in international research projects. In 2011, HUUC received official approval to deliver an articulated program with Linton University (Malaysia) and in 2013 the university added a further partnership to its portfolio of international programs of undergraduate study in partnership with the University of Highlands and Islands (Scotland).
Founded in 2011, School of International Education is responsible for these international programs and has over 870 full-time students. In addition to its teaching and learning remit, the School of International Education also helps to formulate and articulate the university’s international development agenda and serves as a liaison for overseas contacts. The School of International Education plays a key role in promoting HUUC’s global image.
As part of the university’s development plan, HUUC is actively seeking to build global partnerships which produce innovative research, foster academic and professional talent and contribute to the development of Henan Province and China as a whole.
