University opens office in southern China.

COVENTRY UNIVERSITY vice-chancellor Prof Madeleine Atkins has visited China to open an office for the university.

The office is on the campus of the country's second biggest university, the Zhejiang University of Media and Communications (ZUMC), in Hangzhou, southern China.

The visit will help cement a three-year relationship between the two institutions which both offer education in media and media arts.

There are 62 ZUMC students studying in Coventry and two Coventry students studying at ZUMC.

The visit coincides with the Chinese university's 30th birthday celebrations.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Prof Atkins said that modern technology was responsible for helping universities in the UK and overseas to engage in partnership working.

"New media has changed the way we see the world," she said.
