The Confucius Institute is building on a long-standing research collaboration with its partner Beijing Normal University and is a facilitator of research on China across all three faculties of The University of Manchester.
The Confucius Institutes invests in language research to inform our teaching and learning, brings expertise from around the world through our biannual symposia and joint research to improve the learning experience of our students.
All our teaching staff are active language researchers and we follow the University of Manchester research procedures including the ethical approval where applicable.
We welcome approaches from other researchers or organisations that would be interested in accessing the Institute's resources and expertise.
Find out more about our research activities which are either institute-led or carried out in partnership with our valued collaborators.
