Coventry University is a recognised leader in global engagement and has been particularly successful in China. We have developed a substantive and sophisticated educational portfolio based on high quality relationship management, extensive direct student recruitment and progression, excellent Sino-UK programme delivery and innovative collaborative research. As we look to deepen our global commitment, the next stage of development is to establish and deliver an in-country joint college which we hope to formalise before the end of this year, as well as launch a Coventry University Hub to connect all our regional work.

Reporting to the PVC (International), the Academic Dean and APVC China Partnerships will provide a corporate link with all key partnerships in China and provide the necessary in-country leadership to support activities as well as focus on the development of a new joint college.
