The University of Bolton was delighted to receive a delegation from Zhaoqing Municipal Government earlier this week, led by the Deputy Mayor Ms Xuanqun Chen.

The delegation comprised leading government officials from major towns of which form part of Zhaoqing, which is one of Bolton’s ‘Sister Cities’. Xuanqun Chen is an alumna of the University, having studied an MBA at Bolton over 10 years ago and was pleased to renew acquaintances with Dr Peter Moran, her former course leader. She is now one of a small group of PhD students based in Guangdong studying under the supervision of Prof Jerome Carson.

The University was also visited by General Nasser Al Maadeed, a senior official from the Qatari Military who will be enrolling on a distance learning PhD with the University. The University has around six other Qatari PhD students linked to the Qatari Military, but carrying out research in social media, IT and management disciplines.

On Thursday, we welcomed a small group of students, currently studying on collaborative programmes at our Ho Chi Minh partner, Banking University for a two week study visit designed to introduce them to University life at Bolton and experience some traditional UK culture and hospitality.
