  • Centre for Chinese Studies (Education Magazine, June 2006)
    fastest growing in the world At the moment only 150 or so Chinese students are enrolled at the University However Dr Wang is hoping that this number will double over the next three years and increase to between 400 and 500 by 2010 thus making Chinese students the largest overseas group at UCD This student recruitment target is expected to be largely achieved through partnership programmes between UCD and leading Chinese universities For undergraduates this will most likely involve spending a foundation and first year at a Chinese university before coming to UCD for their second and third years At postgraduate level meanwhile it is expected that the students would spend a foundation semester or year in China before coming to Dublin Formalising such programmes will take at least a year so UCD will rely largely on agents to recruit Chinese Students for the coming year The Centre will also be very involved in developing degree programmes to provide Irish students with knowledge and understanding of contemporary China and the Chinese language Among the key objectives in this area are the creation of a BA in Chinese Studies and an MA conversion programme While the undergraduate course will depend on funding from the Irish Government the MA will possibly be run with a Chinese university partner According to Dr Wang these prorammes will be introduced next year at the earliest In addition to these courses the Centre has started working with schools within the University to expand existing programmes to include a Chinese element There has already been strong interest in the first of these a four year BComm with Chinese Studies which will start this September and will include a year s study at a partner university in China CAO applications for this course of which there were 160 including 60 first preferences have exceeded all expectation and the University has now increased the number of available places from 10 up to a minimum of 15 During a recent trip to China by Dr Wang and Dr Martin Butler Director of Quinn School of Business at UCD Three prestige Chinese universities Tsinghua University in Beijing Tongji University in Shanghai and Shenzhen University which is beside Hong Kong agreed in principle the partnership in student exchange programmes with UCD Quinn School The University was also recently chosen as the location for a Confucius Institute On behalf of the Chinese Government the Office of Chinese Language Council International Hanban is currently establishing 100 such institutes around the world to promote Chinese culture and language and to facilitate economic links With very similar objectives the new institute will work alongside the Centre for Chinese Studies Dr Wang is currently working with senior managers in UCD and with the Hanban to develop an appropriate structure for the new institution In line with UCD s objective of becoming a leading researchintensive university the Centre intends to become an international base of research excellence in Chinese studies Staff members will be strongly involved in helping
