Offering higher education leadership training – from China to Pakistan

Since 2012, the Centre has successfully developed and launched a five day programme held at the College for university leaders from all over China, funded by the Chinese Ministry of Education.  The programme provides a unique insight into various aspects of university management from a world-class university perspective, looking at professional best practice in specific areas.  These cover: Research strategy and management, Assurance of academic standards and quality, Curriculum development
Translation and enterprise activities and Staff management.

We are extremely proud to have trained 175 university vice presidents from China and look forward to the next cohort attending, in November 2016.

Drawing on the success of this programme, Imperial CPD in collaboration with Oxford University has been commissioned by the British Council and the Higher Education Commission Pakistan, to develop a similar programme for university vice chancellors, based in Pakistan.  25 of these Vice Chancellors will spend nine days in the UK visiting Imperial and Oxford, meeting senior university staff members to share their views on best practice in university leadership.
