Date: 22 August 2013

London Metropolitan University was pleased to welcome West Yang, Director of the International Centre at Qingdao College, a part of Qingdao Technological University.

The meeting, with the University's International Director, Mark Bickerton, discussed a range of cooperation opportunities between the two institutions, and Mr Yang enjoyed a tour of the Moorgate and Aldgate campuses of the University.

"Qingdao has always been an outward looking city in China" said Mr Yang, "and we are keen to establish stronger links with the UK through academic partnership and cooperation."

In the UK, Qingdao is well known, partly through its hosting of many of the sailing events at the 2012 Olympic Games, but also for its famous (Tsingtao) beer, which is often found in Chinese restaurants in London.
