GCU students work showcased across China

25 November 2013

The work of GCU's Media and Journalism students is to be showcased across China.

Examples of students' award-winning work in print, broadcast and digital media will be exhibited in the Sino-UK Higher Education Cooperation in New Media Industry programme, run by the British Council.

GCU is one of just 10 UK universities selected to take part in the project which, as well as showcasing students' work, allows GCU staff to meet academics in their field at institution across China as well as media industry leaders. The showcase is designed to promote academic exchange between UK and Chinese universities.

Professor John Wilson, Executive Dean of Glasgow School for Business and Society and PVC (Learning and Teaching), said: "We are delighted to be selected to be part of the British Council's New Media initiative. GCU is the only Scottish university to be involved in the initiative and the project offers exciting opportunities to showcase the University’s excellent work in media and journalism as well as  further illustrating our commitment to working closely with media academic and practitioner colleagues in China."
