Matthew Rous, UK Consul General, Guangzhou, recognized UCLan’s achievements during the past 30 years, in providing high quality education to Chinese students so that they can become Global citizens. He thanked UCLan for the positive impact that alumni bring to the friendship between China and the UK. His speech was formal and also welcoming.



UCLan高级副校长Liz Bromley回顾了学校近期的发展、国际化进展和科研上的突破,介绍了未来几年的校园发展Masterplan。在创意创业领域作为英国高校的领头羊,UCLan连续三年获得泰晤士高等教育创业型大学的提名。


Liz Bromley, UCLan Deputy Vice Chancellor/Senior Vice President introduced the recent developments at UCLan, its internationalization activities and achievements in research. Liz also introduced the campus Masterplan which will be developed over the coming years. As a leader of innovation and entrepreneurship education among UK universities, UCLan was shortlisted for the award of ‘Entrepreneurial University’ in the Times Higher Education Awards for the third consecutive year. 





2016 was the 30th year in which UCLan has received Chinese students and UCLan China Regional Manager, Michael GE, gave a brief introduction of UCLan’s development and achievements in China during those 30 years. All the achievements and glory are inseparable from the joint efforts of both staff and alumni.






Palace PENG, General Manager of UCLan Biomedical Technology (Shenzhen), introduced UCLan’s recent developments of trans-national technology transfer in China. She said that UCLan Biomedical Technology (Shenzhen) works as a bridge between overseas high-tech projects and talent and Chinese capital, markets and partners. Alumni from the relevant industries are also very welcome to cooperate.





LIAO Ziqiang, UCLan alumnus, talked about his positive study experience at UCLan and about his exciting business start-up after graduation. He called for the establishment of more communication platforms, so that alumni can fully interact, making full use of the golden age of Sino-British diplomatic relations to expand commercial trade.





During the very British themed buffet dinner, the atmosphere was very relaxing and warm and alumni got together to remember their years at UCLan and exchanged today's developments and achievements. Everyone was very happy at coming home. Finally, the China office presented a fine souvenir for every alumnus.





We hope that alumni in the future can continue to focus on the development of UCLan, our alma mater, and actively participate in the activities organized by the University, but also always share with UCLan your latest developments, support each other like a family and care for each other.




We look forward to the next family gathering.
