Bangor College, China

Bangor College, China (BCC) is based in Changsha city, the capital of Hunan province. To meet the demands of the local students and parents for high quality international education, Bangor University and CSUFT entered a strategic partnership in May 2012 to set up a Joint School to deliver UK style undergraduate programmes within CSUFT’s framework. The project received strong support from both the Chinese and Welsh governments. Following more than two years preparation work, BCC opened its doors to 262 students in September 2014. It is the very first Chinese-Foreign joint school in the province.

BCC is initially offering undergraduate programmes in Accounting and Finance, Banking and Finance and Electronic Engineering. All students are recruited through the Chinese GaoKao system, and admitted at tier one with high English marks. All teaching and assessments are carried out in English by a team that includes Bangor University staff, CSUFT staff and specially recruited teaching staff.

Students studying at BCC can choose to study at Bangor University for one or two years, or can complete the entire programme in China. The University’s intention is to expand the College to some 2,000 students in a few years’ time, providing real opportunities for both Bangor and CSUFT to develop new academic programmes.  Bangor University also plans to develop BCC into a ‘study abroad centre’ and a research base for Bangor students to spend one or two semesters studying and researching in China.
