University of Central Lancashire is willing to provide abundant professional teaching resource and put it into the 1+2 hospitality management and exhibition management program.

During the meeting, manager of Chinese Zone Ge Jifei asked Dean Zheng for advice on arrangement for exchange students from University of Central Lancashire in ‘Travel to East’ Plan next year. As a brand exchange program, ‘Travel to East’ Plan has been held in China for several years, in which students from University of Central Lancashire come to visit China and exchange thoughts with Chinese students. It provides a platform for students in UK to learn Chinese culture and at the same time helps Chinese students broaden their horizons. Dean Zheng showed great appreciation to this program and welcomed foreign students to visit and study in China.
