As a truly international University, Richmond has a strong association with partner organisations in China, providing our students with the opportunity to study abroad in China as well as many more places around the world.

In order to enhance our international partnerships in China even further, Richmond President and Vice Chancellor, Professor Lawrence Abeln, recently undertook a series of initiatives.

The first of these was a visit to Wuhan Business University to sign an MOU (memorandum of understanding) for a joint programme with Richmond.

In addition, Professor Abeln made a speech on, ‘The Globalisation of UK Higher Education’, at the Wuhan International Educational Conference in China. The photograph shows Professor Abeln with Dr T Dwayne McCay, President of the Florida Institute of Technology.

Professor Abeln also gave a lecture to the students at the Hubei College of Business, pictured with him in the second photograph.
