The University of West London has launched its Hong Kong centre at a ceremony in the city, marking a key milestone in the University’s international strategic development.
UWL will offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, delivered by UWL staff in the new centre which is a dedicated space adjacent to its partner, Nang Yan College.
Vice-Chancellor and CEO of UWL, Professor Peter John said, ‘I am delighted to officially open the University of West London Hong Kong Centre. This centre is part of our development plans in the region and we look forward to bringing our high quality, career focussed education to this beautiful, dynamic and cosmopolitan city’.
Professor John commented further on the initiative saying, ‘Hong Kong is the perfect base from which to develop and expand further into China and the Far East. Of course the University already has a strong presence in the region through the operations of one of its specialist colleges, London College of Music, and we intend to build on that.’
Initially, offering eight courses in subject areas including Music, Law, Business, Tourism, Psychology and Healthcare, UWL will increase its programme offer in Hong Kong, in line with market demands.
